Not very interesting and very expensive. One child one adult - 33.95. Ridiculous. It was just creepy. We were finished in about 20 minutes.

My kids LOVE Ripley's Believe it Or Not museums - it's my son's goal to visit every single one lol - so while on an overnight trip to Atlantic City we took them to visit this one. It was somewhat small but an interesting visit nonetheless. There were some interesting interactive exhibits. We enjoyed it overall.

Decided to try after seeing on boardwalk i have been to others around the country. This one was the most non interesting..was a lot of money and not very entertaining. Also there were so many venues inside that required change or dollars.

If you've been to any other Ripley's Museums skip it. This is one of the smaller ones and honestly nothing worth seeing. It's pricy for the size. Sorry, I was not at all impressed nor entertained. I might have enjoyed it more if I was with my children.

Me and my gf were bored we decided to check this place out, waste of money, waste of time, nothing to see or do here - we were out within 5 minutes - complete waste of time and money - you would be more entertained looking at your smart phone charge...

This was my first Ripley's museum..so I can not compare it to the others. I will say that it was interesting. Some may find it to be too pricey, but it depends on how much you enjoy your visit! I learned about things that I may not have wanted to..... However definitely was something fun to do - but also... More

We found Ripley's interesting and full of bizarre facts, but on the expensive side. It is a good rainy day adventure, but once through will be enough for us for some years to come.

Fun for the entire family. They put shows on every hours on the hour outside and it's simply pure entertainment and fun. My spouse was picked to participate and we had a blast. Don't miss this one

It's an international brand recognized for the macabre, the unique, the gross and horror with a touch of intellectual curiosity thrown into the mix. Politically it is to the left of the Mutter Museum because yes, it is "BELIEVE IT OR NOT". For $17 you get to witness the spectacle that is Ripley's. There is a coupon on-line. Seniors pay... More
