This is kind of cool to see once. They have figures and things with explanations like in the book. I believe it was about $17 and children cheaper. They have laser game and they have a lot of cool stuff that you never saw before. I like to see all the strange things they have like a roulette table made... More

Our family always enjoys the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museums. There are always so many cool and interesting things to see, and when you walk out...watch out and don't get dizzy! :)

We went here simply because it was a hot day and we needed something to do. It was pretty interesting, but incredibly over priced. Not bad but not great either

This is a fun museum. However, if your kids don't like reading, maybe skip it. It's a little pricey, but average for museums of it's kind. Some of the exhibits are interactive so make sure you see and read everything on the walls and such.

It was reasonably priced and my daughter who was 8 yrs old, loved it! It was interesting for both of us to read and look at all the cool stuff. I would definitely recommend.

Grand kids went into the Ripleys Believe it or Not Museum and we didn't know when they would come out. They stayed in there for hours. So I guess they really had a great time.

We visited when the heat and humidity got too much and it was a really good decision. A great way to spend an hour or so and interesting and informative. Better for adults than the kids I would suggest as they will probably blow off most of the exhibits after a while as their attention starts to wander.

Unfortunately the attraction was closed when I visited, but the front of the building is really cool and great for photos.
