Glad it was included on our 3 day Go San Fran card, as normally it would have been expensive for what it was. But still interesting and fun. Good place for the kids on a rainy day.

Mostly an overpriced tourist trap. The rooms are filled with replicas and random facts more than any actual artifacts. My kids were dying to go to the museum though, and I think they really enjoyed it. I would skip this and other Ripley's attractions from...More

I had always wanted to visit this museum ever since I was a young boy. Unfortunately, all my previous visits precluded my doing so. Not this time. Admission was only $25 per person with a two dollar up grade for the laser and mirror maze....More
