  • Monterey is a stunning seaside town, lots of pretty shops and streets to wander, if you are a Steinbeck fan - lots to see and admire, great views  more »
  • I will admit it was better than I thought it was going to be but at the end of the day I would still have rather done something else.  more »
  • This is a small town museum. It covers the history of the area but don't expect Disney level audio animatronics. Our kids love the place and have for 15 years. It's a little pricey but it's worth it.  more »

  • I don't mean to WAX poetic, but this was seriously the most fun I've ever had. I learned, I laughed, I cried. Plus a BEAR fights a BULL. It's genuine and awesome and just a lot of fun. Worth every penny!
  • Good for a history lesson, but lacking in the wax reality
  • I think you need to have a specific sense of humor to want to go here. That, and some funny friends.
  • Twas okay for me. Maybe a second visit may change my opinion.
  • it's on the verge to be a Tourist trap. Don't think worth the money.
