Have seen the Ripley's books and heard great things about the London one so went out of our way to go. Absolute waste of money and time. It is more accurately a history museum, with the facts written on boards around the place and not much to look at. To actually do anything or interact with anything while there, you... More

Overall very entertaining Definitely not Disney World but it isn't trying to be. Great artefacts, highly unusual stories and just good old fashioned fun. Staff were cheery and helpful. Certainly brightened up a couple of wet afternoon hours in Blackpool! Give it a go.

I am a big fan of Ripley's Believe It or Not, and have been to many of the museums over the world. The Blackpool museum does not disappoint, it has many interesting, strange & wonderful sights to be seen, with amazing facts.

Lots of interesting things to look at is more of a couple or single thing to do children will not have the ability to appreciate it all and as a lot of adults seem... More

My stepson loves Ripley so when we got the chance we went over Christmas when it would be quieter. We were not disappointed. The displays are great and there is a few unexpected things in there. Shame the shop doesn't sell more replicas of what you see, but the visitor programme is ideal. This is ideal for adults and kids... More

Mostly everything at this attraction could of been read in a book. Walking around you will find placards of facts and the odd model or photo relevant to what fact you are reading about. However, the effort was made by the creator and the lovely staff hence the 4 star rating. It's like a museum, not much for the younger... More
