Visited believe it or not in November 2014. It is well worth the entrance fee. It is full of the wierd and curious, the only thing is that you will not see it all in one visit, there is too much to see. Good for all ages.

Had really been looking forward to be going to Ripley's and had been intending to go for ages before I got the chance to actually go. The entry fee at £30 seemed very expensive but there is a lot of 2 for 1 vouchers which made it seem like £15 was a reasonable price to be paying for this attraction.... More

My boyfriend and I went here as we always go passed it and were intrigued to see what it was like. I did some research and the trip advisor reviews weren't great.. However, I took no notice and took the plunge as there was a great 2 for 1 Wowcher offer on. There are so many amazing, graphic and down... More

This place is an eclectic collection of oddities from around the world. Absolutely amazing. Initially the admission seems a little steep, but when you're faced with five full floors of this man's dedicated collection, you'll soon discover that it's well worth it. A great place for the kids too. Will really fire their imaginations.

Let's get the price bit over first. 2 adults =£60. £80 if you have 2 kids. Basically the majority of the exhibits are arts and crafts. A large number fall under the category "so what?". Yayy a knitted life size Ferrari. A portrait of Michelle Obama made of bottle tops. - So what? Didn't appreciate being forced through the hard... More

We bought tickets to Ripley's through a deal website and got them alot cheaper than on the door price. If I bought the tickets on the door I would be dissapointed. There was no queue to get in but the lady who we handed our vouchers to was quite rude and very short with us when we asked for some... More

Loved it. It is, we think, better than the New York Ripleys. The mirror maze and lazer maze were big winners with my boys. Diverse, educational and fun ( we skipped the torture section). You'll find more on our blog World Travel Family

What a great attraction, the museum is quite huge and it takes a while to get through but every exhibition is so engaging and interesting. Would definitely recommend!
