Great place to take the kids

My kids, 6 and 8 loved this place. It was a great place to go to get out of the heat for a bit. Wish it was bigger because the walk through went by too quickly, imo

If you are into weird facts, then this is a good place for you to visit. You will learn a lot and see some cool things. My family and I enjoyed what it had to offer. Some of the rooms were a bit hot and stuffy.

There are some interesting things to see in this museum but the price is a little higher than I think it is worth. If you do chose to go in, plan on taking 45-60 minutes and you will enjoy it.

Ticket sellers are very aggressively selling extras. This in itself isn't bad but when you don't buy any of the extras their attitude turns ugly.

this is always one of our favorite stops in OC- this Ripley's is even better than the one in Manhattan I believe. Take your time, read all the exhibits, it is fascinating and really neat! I love the pre-recorded farts in the bathrooms, very awkward!!!

This is kind of a one & done visit. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have a coupon. It's pricey for what you're getting.

If you are old enough to remember the Believe it or Not feature in the newspapers, you will probably get a kick out of this attraction. If you are a young child, it may have too many frightening things. If you are an older child, you probably feel it is too corny and "old school." That is just how our... More

If you make a trip onto the boardwalk you need to go here. It is worth the money and their are some pretty amazing artifacts inside to see.

I took my 13 year old son and we enjoyed it very much. They offer lots of interesting and odd facts. There are some interactive stations and a few surprises
