Having had visited several Ripley's Believe It or Not museums as a child, I never realized how fascinating the exhibits actually were. Now, as an adult, I found myself completely enthralled by Mr. Ripley's finds. My friend and I spent HOURS perusing the rooms and hallways--and this is a smaller location! We found the entry fees to be of good... More

We thought this one was a bit small for a Ripley's. However it is the first one ever opened so maybe that's why. We found lots of the same stuff from other museums we have visited.

I enjoyed some of the stuff and thought about half was boring. My 11 year old son thought it was awesome. So I guess there's something for everyone.

Looked smaller on the outside but proved to be a lot of things inside! Winding through rooms of neat objects and items - most of which I never seen before. Interesting history in the castle that the museum is housed in. Would recommend to anyone. Great place to get out of the heat as well.

I will say what sets this Ripley's apart is it's location. The building is beautiful and has it's own history which alone is worth visiting for. Other than that the exhibits are the normal stuff you expect from Ripley's- some are really interesting, some are weird, and some are just gross.

We would have picked a full moon to take the Haunted Castle Tour... and it was great. We opted to skip the regular museum tour based on reviews and found we saw enough during the night tour that we were glad we did. Very informative and interesting story regarding a mystery murderer and a fire from the 40's. If you're... More
