Was awesome ,lots of fun for all ages. Would have been better if hand rails were on both sides of staircase, just had knee surgery and husband disabled so was a little hard to go in and out with stairs with only one hand rail.

Had a good time at Ripley's Believe it or not with my partner. It was fun and interesting. My Partner nearly crapped his pants with some of the funny suprises.

Bought a groupon voucher and took 3 grandchildren ages, 8, 6 and 5. Spent a terrific two and a half hours looking at exhibits. There were many interactive displays which combined with the bridge with lights rotating around it and laser beam course, the grandchildren had much enjoyment. They had lots to talk about after the visit. Could recommend it.

I really enjoyed going through Ripley's. Lots of fun facts, interactive displays. It can take you anywhere between an hour to 2 hours to go through. Depending on whether you wish to read through all the displays.

The museum is much larger then it first appears. While it does not hold many original artefacts (most items are copies or pictures) it does provide short and concise info about them. As well as the exhibits, the museum also provides activities, which could be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. well priced and definitely worth seeing.
