My husband and I went here after grandchild left, glad we did not take him (he is 6 years old) he would have been bored to death. We enjoyed the exhibit, would have liked to have more benches to sit down

I did like this, it is interesting and fun. A lot to read if you are interested. This attraction used to be on the old Steel Pier, it was bigger and much better then.

Seriously, last thing I had a need to do. But teens wanted to go, and with a rain day keeping me from the beach I agreed to take the family. We were inside at least 2 hours and all generations of the family were amused and enjoyed the visit. Great place for the older and teen kids.

The husband and i love the Ripley museums, we have been to a few on the east coast. You can't just walk through, read everything and really look at everything. Awesome adventure... Just straight up cool

When you walk along the boardwalk you can't miss this museum, its facade sticks out intentionally meant to look odd and mysterious. You might find people standing around looking at the different display pieces on the boardwalk, but don't less this hinder you, just walk right on up to the desk and pay for admission. Be advised that you can... More

It has a lot of surprises, curiosities and interactive attractions. Some of this attractions requires an extra payment, but it worths the visit.

This was a spur of the moment decision for my family. We went to a different Ripley's Believe it or Not years ago. Both locations were different and had amazing collections! I would definitely recommend a visit based on the friendly staff and the incredible collections. The time we went was a little busy. It was hard to see things... More
