Only £6 admission, good value, lots of interesting fact and I never heard of it, it's great place to learn something about our world history that never been on TV or a book. Ideal location just behind the pleasure beach.

Visited with children, not very entertaining and over in no time at all, ending with the gift shop that was fairly grim too.

I've visited Ripley's museums in Florida and California and hoped this one would be on the same - or at least a similar - level to those. It was not. All the displays were either behind glass or too far away to get close to for photos (unlike displays in other Ripley's attractions) and the whole place was far too... More

Kids found this place very amusing and spent loads of time reading all the facts and tormenting each other in here, good for a smallish attraction out the cold for an hour. Its an interesting place
