Very interesting exhibits but the price of admission is a bit pricey. It should be cheaper. It was fun.

In Orlando for a little R&R. My husband, my mom, and myself no kids in tow. Husbands retired military so if you qualify use it! The staff was really courteous. I think it was1/2 and 1/2 some cheesy and some interesting overall we enjoyed ourselves. Definitely seemed less crowded than MWs...

We spent at least 2 hours walking around the exhibits. They show all types of unusual and exotic artifacts and oddities from around the world. We were interested in the facts and the variety of exhibits. We didn't want it to end. Very funny and great photo opportunities.

This was a place my kids wanted to see. It was interesting but for what it is the tickets are a bit expensive. I believe the tickets should go for half of what they charge. Not a bad place to spend an hour or so if you can get the tickets at a discounted rate.

If you have a couple of hours to spare, and are in the area, give it a go. It's not too expensive to get in, and there is quite a lot to see. The stuff in there just isn't that interesting. We went out for dinner and then stopped here on the way back to our villa. it was about... More

Ripley's is well designed with wall to wall exhibits everywhere. Small kids might find it boring as there are not many interactive attractions to keep their interest. There are plenty of things to take photos of, but I was disappointed that many things where replicas and not original. You can easily make your way through the building in 2 hours.... More

Thanks Douglass for your review! We always enjoy hearing our guest's feedback. Everything in our museum is the real artifact except for a couple items in the animal exhibits, but they are based are real animals. While we feel we are a great value for the Orlando market, we do offer coupons in Orlando magazines and discounts. We appreciate you... More

This Ripleys is well appointed and very informative with many fun artifacts inside. Its a great place to spend a few hours if the weather keeps you from doing outdoor events. It is a bit pricey but it is well maintained.

Some of our party were a bit dubious about entering and paying the entrance fee not knowing what it was they were getting themselves into, but I had been looking forward to it all day. We had a coupon for a couple of dollars off each but I spent my saving on a guide book which was great. All of... More

We loved our visit to Ripley’s believe it or not. There was a bit of congestion at the tills and the entrance fee may be considered a bit pricey, but that’s your opportunity to walk away. Although you get your hand stamped and you can return at any time during the day, we think once you have been in and... More
