Really fun spot. I love old horror movies and this gallery did not disappoint. Interesting details included with every display. I hear they are opening a 2nd floor so will be back to see it.

It was $15.00 for adults in when I went in October 2018, but you can often get discounts through online ticketing or package deals.
