I traveled with my 4 year old and 11 year old and we stayed on the boardwalk at Harrison Hall, which was great! We walked to Ripley's and the kids loved it and it was not too overwhelming for me. I just bought the ticket cards and let them do whatever they wanted.

We came upon this while strolling down the boardwalk 1 day. It was well worth the money to get inside. If you like oddities this is the place to go. Lots of strange and cool things inside. They also next door operate a mirror maze which is very neat.

My 7 year old expressed interest in going here since he was too scared to go in the year before. We all had a great time here and learned a lot. Everyone seems to end up taking something different away from the museum. I really loved the art area of the museum and what all types of things people have... More

It was ok. Some of the exhibits scared my little girl. I think it was a little overpriced. It should be a free museum. But it was something to do.

This was a great spot to take the kids for an afternoon activity. Some pretty interesting displays. Kept the interest of the children and kept the questions coming.

Very nice. Although, if you've been to the one in Williamsburg, Va. They have a lot of the same things. My kids, 8 and 5, enjoyed it. The mirror maze was pretty neat too! Good Price I think :)

The Ripley's is really amazing with all kinds of cool things to stimulate your eyes, especially at the very end. I don't want to give it away, so you just have to check it out for yourself.

It was an ok attraction! Very expensive per person for all you do! I know that the little kids enjoyed it but for the adults it was nothing to brag about! I just feel I will next time talk the kids out of wanting to go there again and spend the money somewhere else that might actually be fun.

My boys (ages 12 and 9) look forward to this every year. We bought the combo deal for Ripley's and the mirror maze. They enjoyed both and the mirror maze gives you a hand stamp so the kids can enjoy several times. My son also did the laser maze which I would not recommend.
