I didn't go in expecting a whole lot from this place. We were highly disappointed by a previous museum and it just left a bad taste in our mouth. I can honestly say that feeling was soon gone after entering this place. This Ripley's has far surpassed the one in Tennessee. There is so much to see and do. They... More

Hello, Thank you for reviewing your experience with us. Our self guided tour on average is an hour and a half. Since we have over 500 exhibits inside it can take longer to read and play with our interactive exhibits. The illusion room is a brain teaser, there are so many puzzles and riddles to figure out. We are glad... More

Good for a rainy day or break from the sun. doesn't feel crowded, but not an all day adventure so make other plans as well.

I don't think my mum and myself have ever laughed so hard as when we went to Ripley's. Just the gurning mirror alone left us crying from laughing so hard. Would I go again? Probably not as I wouldn't want to ruin the fantastic memory I have of going the first time.

My teenagers loved this attraction, I actually had to keep them moving along. It was good value for money as there was more around corner. There's a lot crammed into this museum with historical artifacts being the most interesting. My kids have a lot of the books at home so some of the stuff on display was familiar to them.... More

One of the many attractions we visited while on holiday in Florida. There are some absolutely mental things on display. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

But this is the worst and totally overpriced museum I ever visited .... How this strange place could call itself a museum? Waist of time and money....

Hello, I'm sorry our attraction was not more to your liking. We certainly have strange and bizarre artifacts from all over the world. There's plenty to see with over 500 exhibits ranging from animal oddities to strange art. We hope you won't rule us out and will visit again as we are constantly updating our exhibits. More

Lots of interesting exhibits. I love all this fact and trivia stuff. For our family it would be nicer if they had more interactive stuff to do together. Overall, it was great it was very clean and organized. The building itself is a work of art. Had a great time.

Dropped by with a group of friends while on holiday in Orlando. It's a fun quirky place for all age groups. Good way to spend an hour.

The kids had a great time here. It's fun to walk around and look at all of the unbelievable and interesting things. I like the history in the beginning about Ripley and how he acquired all of his artifacts. It is a reasonably priced attraction to go. It has a lot of interactive activities, places to take fun pictures, a... More
