The Seven D movie was pretty cool but the rest just sucked...If you are a kid 7-12 years old you might enjoy wonder works but half the exhibit were not in working order and the ones that did work were being used...As...

Visited summer 2009- We came here on our last full day in Panama City because my husband was badly sunburnt and refused to go to the beach. There was a lot to see, and it was worth the money to get in. It was nice and air conditioned and very interesting!

We visited this attraction as part of a package we had purchased elsewhere. I had visited Ripley's in St Augustine so I had an idea what would be there. This location felt small by comparison. Many of the exhibits were old and the displays were faded or hard to read. I was disappointed. There were a few jewels but not... More

We hadn't been to this Ripley's before even though it's not far. We were glad we went and did both the museum and the 7-D movie(s). Found the museum very interesting, lots of actual artifacts and fun interactive displays. The place was very clean as well. The 7-D movie(s) proved to be the star of the show. I had a... More
