Had fun, but I thought $15 was a little too much. It is really just like any other Ripley Believe it or Not.

If you've been to one, you've been to them all. If you've never been, it's worth the adventure. Look for coupons to save yourself some money.

I've been to the Ripley's in Niagara Falls years ago, so I figured it would be neat to visit the one in Atlantic City. It's a complete tourist trip, and a tad pricey, but it's cheesy fun. Lots of cool oddities to see. 2-headed animals, shrunken heads, things made out of animal bones, artwork made out of crickets, and a... More

Ripley's museums are always fun and interesting. However I've been to a few in a couple different states and they all tend to have the same exhibits. If you've never been to one, this is a great way to kill time in some air conditioned space and see some unique stuff. But if you've been to others you might want... More

This museum was built almost 10 years ago. It has a few upgrades but for the most part it smells like grandmoms house. If visiting for the first time you will enjoy it. Don't have high expectations of visiting a season later and seeing a new section. Ps sometimes they have creepy things going on to lure you in, don't... More

If you've been to any other Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum, then don't bother; it's all pretty much the same. However, if you have some time to kill and have an interest in the strange and exotic, then this is the place for you. There are plenty silly attractions to entertain younger guests, yet enough interesting exhibits to hold... More

Bet that they received a hefty tax credit for bringing this temple of ineptitude to the boardwalk. You know that you've hit the bottom of the barrel when you come to Atlantic City and this "museum" should be spelled with a very small m.

Everything else was closed, so we decided to do something after a long stroll on the Boardwalk. It is very interesting and well kept, but I guess there's only so much I can believe...

Something different but like any place that relies on tourist trade it is just something extra to spend your money on instead of gambling at a casino.
