The National Comedy Center just opened in August,2018 but it was hard to tell. Many of the exhibits are interactive. There are enough stations for people to use, so wait time is short. (We went during the week, so not crowded.) The staff was very...More

Good first attempt at bringing comedy to an interactive museum setting, which is a difficult task. Very helpful staff. Pricey admission. Many important comics need to be added to their roster. Would like to see more specific ways of tailoring the experience choices. Food offerings...More
