Austin [ˈɔːstɪn] ist die Hauptstadt und die viertgrößte Stadt des US-Bundesstaates Texas. Sie liegt am Colorado River. Der überall präsente Slogan „Keep Austin Weird“ (etwa "Halte Austin seltsam!") gilt als besonders treffendes Motto für die studentisch geprägte Atmosphäre der Stadt. Zudem gilt Austin als die amerikanische Hauptstadt der Livemusik: In keiner anderen Stadt der USA findet sich eine vergleichbare Dichte an Musikclubs und Konzerten.
1835 wurde die Stadt unter dem Namen Waterloo ([ˈwɔːtəɹˌluː]) gegründet, 1838 jedoch zu Ehren von Stephen F. Austin, dem Gründer der damals unabhängigen Republik Texas, umbenannt. Seit 1839 ist Austin Hauptstadt von Texas. Von 1882 bis 1888 wurde das Texas State Capitol erbaut und galt seinerzeit als siebtgrößtes Gebäude der Welt. Es ist sechs Meter höher als das Kapitol in Washington, D.C.

Had a really good time the tour guide was very funny and adorable. They did a great job sharing little personal stories about each item that they show you the show at the end was fun not overly weird there are some posts that say that this place is not right if you are religious or if you have small children. Not exactly sure because I am none of those couldn't really see where the problem was unless you have very very small children because they do have wax museum creatures that could be scary for very very small children

The Museum of the Weird is not just a collection of weird things. It is the preservation of a genre of American folk lore. The sideshow has been replaced with photoshop in modern culture. MoW brings us back to a simpler time. It's a great place to let your guard down and be a kid again. You don't have to believe when you go back to work, but it's fun to believe when you're there.

This is a really awesome museum they have some really unusual stuff kids absolutely loved it I had a great time, The tour was a little bit longer than we expected about 45 minutes to an hour but other than that I had no complaints had some really interesting and amazingly cool stuff, The lady behind the counter was very attractive and didn't mind helping me out at all. I have a whole group of friends or just freaks and geeks who would absolutely love this I will be recommending this place to them. Make sure to use the bathroom or eat some food before you take this to work as like I said it is about 45 minutes but it is absolutely worth it.

It's really small, but it was fun. Anyway, they said they had a bigfoot frozen in ice in the back but it was obviously fake, my dad had been searching for it ever since he saw the real exhibit when it first toured back in the 60's. A bit of a disappointment. They absolutely did not allow you to film it or take pictures. So that's obviously a red flag.

This museum is small but lots of fun. The tour and show were very entertaining. There are really interesting artifacts and stories.

The best museum EVER, It is worth every single penny! I went there just because it seemed cool and WOW I was blown away! The first part is cool with all the little weird creatures and animals, and the farther you get back the weirder and weirder it gets but the End which I won't spoil it for you is so cool and you have to question if it is real or not! I will definitely go back for sure!

The price would have been worth it if there was more to see. The sideshow was frightening in a way that was not entertaining. They have a crazy person performing in front of a small group in a very small room. The museum is weird. The gift store is just as cool as the exhibits. Love archie mcphee stuff
