  • After seeing about 100 billboards from 50 miles out, my husband and i decided we had to stop here. We are glad we did. An excellent museum, a little weird, about aliens and dinosaurs but very fun, and...  more »
  • A fun ET conspiracy adventure well worth the $5 fee. Much improved since our last visit 15 years ago. Interesting and educational displays. And whaty is the Thing?........I can't give it away.  more »

  • Fun and friendly place! Exhibit was very reasonable $11 for family of 4. Creative and interesting. Staff are in on it adding to the fun. Dairy Queen on site. After we got our food to go, they were sure to tell us to be safe on the road. Very kind. So glad we stopped to see The Thing!
  • I've driven by the Thing several times throughout the years and the renovations that they just did were totally worth it. The museum is absolutely worth checking out. Very family friendly and a good way to stretch your legs from the drive.
