This was a spur-of-the-moment visit since we decided against Dollywood due to the cold weather. It was a fun way to spend a couple hours, although there isn’t much of a “revisit factor” to it; maybe a one and done for this venue. Anyway, the attractions and information of this place was fun and interesting. There were displays on OJ, Bigfoot, JFK, etc. We enjoyed it.

"Pleasantly Surprised!!"

Pleasantly surprised!! We spent 2 hours touring the museum, and I even preferred it over WonderWorks. We had a Groupon for admission, so we spent $30 total for 2 adults and 2 babies under 5. WORTH IT and I’d even pay the regular admission price. First of all, it’s stroller friendly, and our 2 year old enjoyed it! Plenty of exhibits and features she loved, and it was fun searching for the “pets.” The Bigfoot exhibit was really cool, and so was the alien egg pit! The virtual reality section at the end was also awesome. Plenty of good photo ops, interesting & historical information, and so many interactive aspects. 100% we will be back.

So we've been coming here for 20 years and we spend a day in pigeon forge every year. So we've been making the rounds of trying out an attraction or two. And, I can honestly say this is by far the best attraction we've ever been too. It was a big attraction, which means even with people there we didn't feel crowded. We really enjoyed doing ever exhibit and the virtual reality was incredible. Upgrade to the VIP experience to make it a scavenger hunt with your phone. What a cool place, really enjoyed this place.
