Definitely should come down on the price point, maybe 10-15 worth of exhibits to really see. Kinda bored but made the most of the money spent

The exhibits were very cool and very fun to interact with. Went during non peak hours(Monday night) and it was great to not be rushed through. Got to take our time really, it was fun. It was a bit pricey for the amount of stuff, but I’m not unhappy, I had a really good time. Don’t expect to spend a ton of time here though. Also, the door didn’t get closed when we went into the infinity room, I suppose we could’ve asked but we were disappointed that the door wasn’t closed while we were inside.

I do not understand why they say only purchase tickets online but when i got there people kept walking up and they were letting them purchase it right there and jump into line. What is the point of the selected times if you go in as a huge group anyways?
To many people, there was no time limits on things so people would bloc a whole exhibit for 10 minutes as they tried to get pictures. I get you want to take cute pictures but this is a Art exhibit and not a self museum. Very frustrating considering the over priced tickets. If you are an out of towner I do not recommend doing this on the weekend.

I went into this with no expectations per se and really enjoyed myself. Art is very subjective so the wndr museum is likely to impact people differently. Personally, I liked how some of the installations encourage people to let go a little and just go with the flow. Positivity, creativity and self expression seemed to be a subtle theme throughout which I appreciated.

Went with my 9 year old and had a great time. Embraced the exhibits and smiled and laughed all the way through.

We took our teen daughters here (16,18) while in town on vacation. It was a nice way to spend an evening when everyone was tired from exploring the city earlier in the day. If your kids like unique photos, this is the spot. About 1/3 through, one of my kids asked “Wait, is this one of those selfie museums?” It’s not, there’s definitely more too it, and there are some very cool exhibits, and there’s lots to interact with, but it’s also not super deep. There’s positive messaging, throughout, though, which was nice. We went when it wasn’t busy, and had it been crowded it wouldn’t have been as much fun. We had ample time to explore the exhibits. The reason I gave it 3 stars I read of 4 was that it’s significantly overpriced at $30/ticket.

This was worth the money and the experience was amazing! It’s different because it’s interactive art and so you take more from it than just a cute pick or background. It’s like a full on experience and the art interacts with you! It’s dope! The staff is mad chill, good music and overall great vibe and lots of fun!!!

....oh wait, that was part of the museum. The museum contains a series of interactive art exhibits that lean much more heavily on the take a selfie and post it side rather than the interactivity side. Think of it as a children's museum for children with smart phones. Hefty admission fee. For much less, you can go to a children's museum and a modern art museum to see a Kusama exhibit but here you can combine the two so I guess that's something. Now, I've only been to a few places that offer the optical illusion photo opportunity with a staff member to take your photo so if you do go, be sure to bring someone with you whose height difference is quite noticeable. I can't imagine anyone over the drinking age to find this interesting because you've probably lived long enough to experience versions of these installations but maybe you haven't so see for yourself. I took my mother and we saw the whole thing in less than an hour, including waiting behind people taking selfies at each stop. She told me to never take her to these kind of places again. Art Institute was more her jam. (I marked travelled as solo because there's no family option w/o children. Some of us drive around our senior parents. That's family last time I checked.)

The line was super long, even though we had a specific ticket time. Some of the exhibits were cool, but was overall very overrated. It’s basically an Instagram post location.

Pretty basic low quality illusions. Short walkthrough, paid over $35 per person, which is a lot of money for what we got. Wouldn’t repeat the experience
