Two stories filled with more than 500 exhibits, artifacts, and oddities from around the world. The only place in Ocean City where you'll find a shrunken head, a 12ft tall robot sculpture made from scrap car parts, one-of-a-kind artwork, the world's rarest egg, and two-headed animals!

It was ok wouldn't go in there again. Kinda pricey, the best part was the mirror maze you can add on.

It's your typical tourist attraction. Great to do when it's raining outside and you can't enjoy the beach or the boardwalk.

Good but not quite Orlando Florida level. Would be nice if it was a bit bigger for the money. However, it is Air Conditioned and a nice change of pace for a bit of a break while keeping the mind occupied.

Have been here a number of times over the years. They haven't added any new things. Still neat to take the grand children to, however, after one time, really isn't worth the money.

This was a very fun unusual event. My wife, son and myself had a blast here though. The price wasn't too bad, and you get to see some really interesting things.

I never was to the one at Inner Harbor so all I can tell you about is the one in Ocean City Maryland. The one in OC is great. My grandsons loved it. Kathy Young Hummels Wharf, PA

Their Website says Open Daily 9am to 1am. Their number and email address are also listed on their website under "Contact". So, to be 100% certain, just give them a call or send an email.
