Ripley's is always fun, but I do have to take a star off since so many of the exhibits are duplicated in other Ripley's locations. So, you end up paying to see mostly things you've already seen multiple times at other Ripley's locations.

This is the only Ripley's Believe It or Not museum I have ever visited, so I can't compare it to any of the others, but anyway..... The first time I went was with a friend when we were both about 27 years old on a "girls getaway" weekend, and we spent about an hour just goofing off and laughing at... More

Had fun, but I thought $15 was a little too much. It is really just like any other Ripley Believe it or Not.

If you've been to one, you've been to them all. If you've never been, it's worth the adventure. Look for coupons to save yourself some money.

I've been to the Ripley's in Niagara Falls years ago, so I figured it would be neat to visit the one in Atlantic City. It's a complete tourist trip, and a tad pricey, but it's cheesy fun. Lots of cool oddities to see. 2-headed animals, shrunken heads, things made out of animal bones, artwork made out of crickets, and a... More

Ripley's museums are always fun and interesting. However I've been to a few in a couple different states and they all tend to have the same exhibits. If you've never been to one, this is a great way to kill time in some air conditioned space and see some unique stuff. But if you've been to others you might want... More
