Pretty fun time at this place, but the best part is the double mirror. Watch out don't get caught doing something you will regret. Hee-Hee

A must do for people of all ages-interactive and educational! Ripley's is a fun place on the boardwalk to check out and reasonably priced too.

I have been to a Ripleys in San Antonio, and Florida and this washy far the best. It wasn't overcrowded and the attractions were entertaining.

For what appeared to be a tiny building from the outside is very misleading. There were many exhibits. The visit took easily 75 minutes to view and all people left learning something.

It was filled with beautiful, exotic and wonderful things.. I definitely would recommend it. I wouldn't bring small children.. somethings are too scarey for them.

I took my girl and my 9yr son down to see the museum for the day. I really don't really go to AC that much, so I never saw it before. First off I thought I was just being snob, but the boardwalk is so dirty. But I kept my comments to myself and sucked it up. The museum was... More

We stopped in here when it started to rain one day. This collection contains some very interesting / obscure items. Kind of reminded me of a side show at a circus.

It was nice to have something family oriented to do while at the Boardwalk, but this Ripleys didn't seem like it was worth the $38 we paid for 2 people to get in. It was like walking through a Believe It or Not book. You read their plaques and look at illustrations or wax mockups of strange things...like 2 headed... More
