The building is impressive. There are a lot of quite impressive items and stories herein. The parking wasn't really a problem (even though it looks small). The admission fee was about average. There were a couple of exhibits not working properly, so the quality control could be better, but overall a nice experience whether on a date or with family... More

Very 1970's style of attraction. I can imagine farmers from that era being very impressed, but during a fantastic, magical, amazing trip to Orlando and doing everything it had to offer, this place really let it down, save your spending money for the parks.

The quickest way to sum up the experience you'll have is, if you like the show you will certainly be entertained throughout the whole museum, if not, then this is probably not your place. It is very family friendly although there is a section on medieval torture that may not be too interesting for kids (it's not gory or anything,... More

As is with most Ripley's attractions, this one is very interesting to say the least. There are tons of things to look at, and you never get bored. Each Ripley's Odditorium is different than the rest, and there are always amazing things to see. This one is definitely worth it!

Interesting.... was not THAT overly excited when we came out. First 10 minutes was an interesting "look-at-everything" but thereafter we just walked and stopped here and there. Perhaps some other people would find this more exciting? Sorry!

This attraction was decent and interesting for what it was. I always wanted to go to one and I felt I got my monies worth. It takes about an hour, and all in my party enjoyed it. Tip - purchase tickets online to save about $4 per person. We bought tickets online in the parking lot and the bar codes... More

The exhibits were pretty much as I expected - I'd seen the books. There were lots of wonderful and wacky facts. And despite knowing a lot of the stuff anyway, there was still lots to be interested in. We wondered at the amazing people featured; gasped at the horrors of the torture chamber; checked out the shrunken heads and amazing... More

Real objects and stories, not just pictures, from Ripley's world travels. Weird, sometimes a little disturbing, but fascinating. Would have enjoyed more interactive exhibits, but it had plenty of pleasant surprises. Suitable for all ages.
