The props and the animatronics are scary good and the information learned about the movies that had these monsters in them is so knowledgeable. The service by staff is good and respectful, and they know how to talk to the customer in a polite manner.

This museum is a must see when you’re in Boulder City. The family is amazing and super friendly. The museum is quaint yet exciting and well worth it. If you’re a movie buff of any kind, you’ll enjoy every bit of this place.

I highly recommend stopping to see this wonderful museum. The displays are well done. Mr Devlin was very nice to visit with. I love the classic monsters and it was such fun to see the progression of film and makeup throughout time.
