We really enjoyed going here. We went as a kid and then again this year and it was a good time. My kids had never been and they really liked it.

This was a complete waste of time and money for our family. Our 6 year old wasn't into any of it at all. It was very creepy and dark. It had an eery, haunted house feel to it. I was waiting for something to jump...More

Fun way to spent an hour. Easy to walk through and plenty of oddities to catch your eye. We had a fun time finding the "hidden" floor and "secret" exhibits. If we come across another one on vacation we'll have to stop in.

it is a self-guided tour, so it is up to you! We have had guests go through in 20 minutes (not recommended) and others stay up to 2 hours. :)
