Aside from the historical museums in the area, Myrtle Beach is also home to several specialty museums that serve more as entertainment attractions than educational spaces. These places are perfect for those more interested in taking selfies with wax figure replicas of famous people, seeing mind-bending displays of strange human achievements, discovering the practical wonders of science, or checking out classic cars. Fun for the whole family, a trip to one or more of these promises an experience that will be talked (and maybe) laughed about for the foreseeable future. And why not add some more fun to what is probably already a great vacation? After all, it is a Myrtle Beach vacation!
This Broadway at the Beach attraction features over 100 hands-on exhibits that combine the wonders of science with amusement, discovery, physical challenge, imagination, and much more. Aside from the “edu-tainment” experience in the unique upside-down house, visitors can also play laser tag, complete a full ropes course, hop on a 6D motion ride, or glide through the sky above a lake on the 1,000-foot zipline.More Info Visit Website
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
Located on Ocean Boulevard in downtown Myrtle Beach, Ripley’s Odditorium is home to over 200 “odd” exhibits spread out over 12,000 square feet on two floors. Here, visitors can see everything from a six-legged pig, a wax replica of the world’s tallest human ever, a shrunken human skull, an authentic vampire killing kit, and tons of other really weird stuff that you won’t see anywhere else.More Info Visit Website
