Admission to the Mystery House was only $2 each. It was kitschy, but the family loved it. One thing to note is it was open on Wednesday even though based on Google hours it was only open F-Su.

It is the best $1 I've spent in a while. My kids loved it, and it was indeed a lot of fun. Takes about 15 minutes, and it's a guided tour. If you have balance problems or vertigo, you may wanna opt out.

Don't miss Big Mike's! We spent a lot of time looking at the rock collection, taking pictures and talking to the employees who are so nice and fun! Definitely tour The Mystery House. It only costs a couple of dollars.
