We have been in a few Ripley's, the videos and exhibits in this museum are below what I have come to expect at a Ripley's. Wasn't thrilled with the exhibits.

I like Ripleys, loved the Sunday strip as a kid, had at least one book, and watched the TV show years ago. This was my first visit to one of their physical museums. It is a museum of the odd, and in some cases actually amazing. It takes about an hour to see it all, but could take longer if... More

I've been to the Ripley's in NYC and this seemed along the same lines as far as exhibits. I really enjoyed myself but wouldnt return because it really doesn't change much. Good for kids too.

Fun for all ages. Some very interesting displays. Items from all around the world. Takes at least an hour and a half to go through. Take your time and read as much as you can throughout your visit. Cute tiny gift shop at the end of museum.

OMG what a waste of money and time. Took 15 minutes to go through the entire place. The staff was rude. And there was no Groupon available.

I was pleasantly surprised, there is so much to see. You really have to take your time to take in everything there is to see. But, it was amazing and my granddaughter enjoyed it very much.

Ripley's is always fun, but I do have to take a star off since so many of the exhibits are duplicated in other Ripley's locations. So, you end up paying to see mostly things you've already seen multiple times at other Ripley's locations.
