Brillant place. It's also a fun and interesting place to visit - If you ever go, make an afternoon free so you can visit!! The new laser game inside - a good test to see if you can make it to the other side without touching the lasor beams. This is just a fantastic game - go on give it... More

Took my 12 year old in while my 19 year old shopped. Great time filler in. My daughter loved it and there was some interesting stuff. Very interactive and she had lots of fun. No negatives about this place.

We went through here about 3 years ago and when we went last month, nothing had changed. I went with just my 4 year old and there was a lot that I didn't really want her to see, like the dead bodies/mummies. So we had to skip a whole section of it. If you stopped and read everything it would... More

Daughter to go along to this and was going to send her and dad into see the "strange" things. I ended up going with them and was quite surprised how big the exhibit was and found it very interesting.

Was a bit disappointed in the 'new' Ripley's. Not as good or had as much on display as it did before the renovations.

Good to go if you want to fill in some time. To make the most of it you need time to read all about the things as you go through

I took my 9yo son to visit and thank god for the discount voucher where I got in on a child's rate. This place is boring. Unless you like to read a lot each exhibit had a story or a picture. Not much interactive exhibits, more like a story telling. For a child this isn't a place for them, unless... More

We went here with our son and we all had a good time. There are lots of fun facts to learn, interactive activities, photo opportunities and if you enjoy taking an hour or so looking around in a relaxed yet fun environment, then you too will enjoy this place. A well spent morning having fun with family, laughing and learning... More
