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.

We always have a nice visit here. The kids have been here every year, and still love to go. Ripley's Believe it or Not is a good place to take the kids and astound them year after year.

Anybody who's ever been to Ocean City knows about the shark through the wall. Most don't realize the fun attraction inside the building. There is a lot to see ( & A LOT to read) but it's worth the effort. Hard to keep the little ones interested (until you get to the mirrors) but everybody else will be entertained by... More
