I visited Ripley's Museum while in Orlando since I'd never been to one before. As a child, I used to see the Believe it or Not segments in our local newspaper and was always fascinated by the contents. I thought it would be kind of cheap and cheesy but it turned out to be pretty good. It's definitely a "niche"... More

We thought for the high price to get in we would see some pretty interesting things. But we didn't really think the things were that incredible. Not a place we would go back to.

Great place with lots of interesting things for kids and adults. Very informative and lots to keep kids attention. Lots of games for them to play. Interesting things such as the slanted floors and the tunnel that make you think you are falling.

We stopped here after our flight landed. We needed to kill some time before we could check into the house we rented. There are lots of really neat things in here for everyone to enjoy. Both of our girls (both under the age of 10) enjoyed everything in here. Lots to take pictures of. Everything has a label/sign to tell... More

This building seemed like it was very run-down. The displays were old and not very well kept up. One of the displays was one that had a moving magnifier but the labels did not match what you were seeing. The only really good thing was the rotating tunnel - the rest of the stuff deserves a pass.

Hello Mike, We are constantly revamping our location and looking into getting new exhibits in the near future. We hope your experience won't rule us out. Many of our exhibits carry some age due to the history of the artifacts. We hope you will see us again soon! More

Given that other attractions on the International drive region are super-expensive, we found this location of Ripley's to be surprisingly enjoyable. Okay, there are a lot of exhibits here that don't really blow your hair back but there are some that are very interesting. The mix of items and stories they tell would appeal to an audience from young to... More

I walked right past a Ripley's museum where I lived previously. Perhaps, that was a mistake. I figured it would be lame but, to my surprise, it was actually quite the opposite. They had many interesting exhibits; caters to both adult and children. Videos to further explain the history behind certain exhibits were tremendous! I thoroughly enjoyed it; especially the... More

This place is a joke and not the good kind. The place is not like how I remember Ripley's to be. It is full of nonsense junk. The people working there aren't the friendliest either. So wish we would have went to the bowling alley next door. This was a waste.

I brought my daughter here on Valentine's Day. She's 9. We really enjoyed the museum. It was not only interesting but educational. I recommend it especially for kids who want to do something other than Disney while here. We had a great time! Believe it or not!! :-)
