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

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

It's been 10 years since I went to a Ripley's believe it or not museum, and going back (in a different state) still met my expectations. It has a lot of things to see! I don't want to give it all away, just take my word, it's def worth the money to go and visit.!

There are some really interesting items in here that are a definite must see. We spent 3 hours in there taking our time and reading everything. I do think its a little overpriced at $20 each but it was a lot better than expected. Its worth a visit if you fancy a change from a theme park.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT The exhibits are organized as a walk-through where you are first introduced to Ripley’s World then onto mind puzzles and teasers (reminiscent of the puzzles included in Ripley’s news columns). You’ll also pass tribal oddities, big and small arts, torture devices, abnormal people and more. I’m not sure which figures are originals or replicas-- some are... More

Being from Orlando It was one of those things where it was a boring Friday afternoon and we wanted to go because there was nothing else to do. Very cool exhibits and stuff! Would be a cool place to take your kids if your traveling and looking for something to do for a few hours after visiting the theme parks.... More

Good way to waste away an hour with the family. There are things I'm not sure why they are there but I guess would be appreciated by others. On the whole freakily weird stuff and the end part had us laughing hard. Good price with a coupon so well worth a visit. (Would off purchased a fridge magnet as a... More

Went to Ripley's and it was pretty neat. I bought my ticket online at the discounted rate and presented the ticket my iPhone to be scanned for admission. It was raining out so it was a great inexpensive way to kill time. It's a museum with a twist and I really enjoyed the life-like wax figures as well as the... More
