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.

two words - Rip. Off. Don't be fooled by the junk on the outside, or by "coupons" they sometimes hand out on the Boardwalk. Keep on walking.

This was the second time I went to the museum in 15 years. It is very entertaining, but it is exactly the same as I remember it was last time I went. Nothing has changed.

Had a good time. Found it to be interesting, bring quarters as they have some fun machines to paly with. I don't think the little ones would enjoy it, lots of reading..

60$ for two adults and two kids. 45 minutes of walking around looking at stuff, some interesting, some not. Half the price would have been decent. Had we known, we'd have spent the cash at the arcade instead!

My husband and I enjoyed looking at the exhibits. Good indoor activity if the weather isn't nice, or if you need to get out of the sun for a while

Watch for discounts and its well worth the time and money. Takes about 1 hour or so to enjoy, read the stories. Decide if its real or not...

I walked out with my family and felt like I wanted to stand outside and tell everyone not to go inside save your money. It should be called ripoff believe it or not! Seriously, it was so boring. If it were free it would have been a waste of time. Save your money.

My wife used to stop at every ripleys on road trips and i got dragged in here for the first time. Something fun to do on the boardwalk. Inside are factual and ridiculous things. We got a good laugh and saw some interesting crafts and projects.
