Visited on a rainy afternoon and it was a great way to pass an hour. Have been before and it doesn't really change but there is enough interesting displays to keep your attention. My 8 year old in particular enjoyed it, especially the moving tunnel at the end!

Staff are great, lay out is great and plenty for everyone to interact with and learn from. I have taken my children here many times and they never get tired of visiting, learning and interacting with the exhibits etc . Will continue to visit in the future with family.

I first went here over 20 years ago and it hasn't changed much in that time. This isn't a bad thing if you've never been before as it is a very good display, lots of interesting things to look at. I enjoyed it the second time around but was a little disappointed that there wasn't much new content.

Cool to visit but nothing any different from the other Ripley's around the world. Ideal when in the UK to get out of the rain for a while!

We only had the chance to look through here from the outside and we never had chance during our trip to Blackpool to visit it again, it did seem very fascinating from the outside and I would have loved to have gone in!

It's a bit different from the norm as you would expect, absolutely packed with weird and wonderful exhibits from top to bottom. You can spend 30 mins and see lots or spend hours and take it all in. Kids loved it as did we, worth spending an extra couple of quid on the souvenir booklet too!

Visited with my husband and 2 teenagers. £18 for admission for us all and £2 for a souvenir book. We really enjoyed it. If you are interested in weird and strange things then this is the place to go. Loads of different things to see such as the tallest man, a pic of lady Di made from 2ps, 2 headed... More

Good for being unusual and strange I just don't think the place is big enough so it's not great when it's really busy. Maybe I need to try it when it's quieter.
