A fun family place

If I were here without the 11 year old son I would not take my time and spend my money to come here but it was fun with the boy.

Loved walking through Ripley's. Found a lot of interesting things, the kids loved weighing themselves to see what they weighed on different planets, and walking through space

We had a great time going through this "museum." There was plenty to see and a fun place to take younger kids, but I agree that once is enough.

The kids had fun but the tour lasted only a few minutes. There are not very many artifacts or cool things to see. The best part is the star room and the kids loved it. The earthquake area used to be exciting but now is broken and boring.

We did the bundled package deal..has a few interesting items but not a whole lot. Needs to be more up to date I think. Once is enough.

Great exhibition especially for kids although adults get a kick out of many of the exhibits. A fun place and not too spend really.

I was expecting a little more. It was okay. I do think the cost is too much for what you get. I won't be going back...been there done that kind of a feeling. Would not take small kids through. Teenagers would enjoy it.

Okay, I've lived in Oregon now for 40 years and in those years I've been to this place 3 times. First time curiosity got me, paid to go through and thought "wow, cheap and cheezy". Next time went through because I had a friend with me that had never gone and wanted to see it. I paid the huge cost,... More

This was great the videos and the way they present the rooms was good. I loved the most the room of stars. And the show near the end was a lovely way to introduce those parts/people of the show
