If your in the area and like weird stuff then you should go here. Parking was hard to find, cost you $5 to go through the main part, has a little gift store in the front. The counter girl was really fun and nice.

We found this little place on a rainy day. It is small but very creative; it is inexpensive and fun. There is a pretend coffin and many other activities

Not worth the $5 admission. There's a bunch of werid stuff here, so if you are really into horror/gore/aliens/bigfoot/star trek (!), you might enjoy it.

Cost is $5.00 to walk around three rooms crammed with life size and small size collectables. The staff is overwhelmingly friendly, welcoming you as your enter and exit by the gift store. There is no charge to wander around the gift store that has just...More
