We love this attraction. You can get a package for this with others and save. It is just a great facility that is clean and interesting for kids and adults of all ages.

When me, and my boyfriend decided to visit OC we decided to check out Ripley's while we were there.. I will just say if you have the time do check out this museum it's pretty interesting, and definitely worth the money and time if you're looking to do something with your significant other.

The museum was ok... honestly the one in Hollywood, California was better but OMG you have to go through the mirror maze. Worth the money. Super confusing. It was fantastic. My husband and I loved it, my 9 year old loved it, even my 5 year old loved it. Just make sure to hold on to the kids tight.

The real life artifacts, the images that they represented, we just enjoyed every minute we had, taking in the history and looking at all the displays.

This is a must see if you have never been. We had the time of our lives in the museum. We took our time to go through and look at everything. There's a surprise around every corner, this is great for all ages. I also was very impressed by the staff they were very helpful.

Had been here years ago, and was shocked to see the price increase to $14 a person for adults. A bit pricey even for the OC boardwalk.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit and I am sorry that you didn't find the value in your visit. By any chance, did you combo your ticket to include the MIrror Maze and the LaseRace? We combo these three attractions for a great savings so that you can do more and pay less! More
