Had a great time at Ripleys - thought all the exhibits were interesting (two headed sheep, skin off a giant python etc). My sons both really enjoyed it especially the more grusome. The art exhibition was fascinating and all in all we spent a good 2/12 hours going through the museum which is very well laid out so you don't... More

We spent a great afternoon in Ripley's. There is so much to see and learn. Our party ranged from 3 yrs to 40+ and my 3yr old was entertained all the way through, which is a first for her on days out! there was something for everything and would definitely go again. Loved the Mirror Maze and Black Hole, and... More

We booked the fantastic value "after 5pm" time slot to visit so arrived at Ripleys at about 9:45pm. This was great as we were among only 10 visitors throughout our entire visit! Our age range was 16-65 at the time of visiting and all of us had great fun. The museum itself was fascinating, the mirror maze was fab but... More

If you enjoy the oddness, this is the place to go. It is a nice collection of rare, interesting and curious things. Some of them are a bit bizarre, living up to the name of the museum, so ity's up to you to believe it or not. A bit pricy, so I probably wouldn't go again.

It is a bit pricey however I believe you can it cheaper if you can find deals online. It is pretty much self service style as most of the exhibit does not require much help so you won't see much staff around. It's quite large and there are a few floors to go through, I stayed around 1 hour but... More

We recently visited the Ripley's museum in London (after our girls have been reading the books for years) and had a great time! They loved the mirror maze and they also enjoyed the laser tag. It's less gaudy then I was expecting and actually quite informative. It's expensive so try to find a coupon if you can. Before you head... More

...but it's £26 to get into this place! Yes, each! Hugely disappointing and the whole place could do with a revamp. Some interesting bits (which is why I didn't give a 1). We took about an hour to get through. Wouldn't go again. Far better attractions for less money in the area.
