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

We didnt have a lot of time to read each and everything, but we were still there for almost 2 hrs. I think it was a bit expensive for the number of items on site. They do have an elevator. My favorite exhibit was the Titanic area. We didnt see the movie. They do allow you to take pictures.
