The exhibits are outdated and old. I was here 5 years ago and not much has changed except the price (higher) and the value (lower). Its interesting to a point, but overall kinda boring. Not reccomended for small kids-mine got scared

Not as big as I remembered it being when I was a kid, but that's typical of childhood memories. We still had a great time, and our 9-year-old daughter enjoyed it and wasn't scared. I had a groupon deal for this, which saved us a lot. Might have been a bit expensive without.

We bought a groupon package for under seas garden, Ripley's and the wax museum The kids really enjoyed Ripley's. Full of interesting and strange items. Doesn't take too long to explore. Worth visiting if you have extra time

I like to make an annual trip to Ripley's, for the fun of it. It's a great little experience, full of oddities. We had people in our party with ages ranging from 6 to 56, and everyone enjoyed it. They offer a ticket package to see this attraction, the Wax Works, and the Undersea Gardens. This is, by far, the... More

Some of the exhibits are a bit on the morbid side, but there was a variety of things to look at and a few interactive exhibits that were quite fun. Overall, we enjoyed it.

It hasn't changed to much in the last 20 years, kids enjoyed going through. Get the 3 pack deal, it makes it worth it. Also check Groupon they usually have a deal going

If you can the best thing to do is buy for all three attractions, Ripley's, The Wax Museum and the Undersea Garden. The undersea gardens are just okay but the other two are wonderful, Shows how it feels to be in an earthquake, history of the Japanese dropping balloon bombs and what happened to one group years later. Wax Museum... More

Not as cool as what I promised my teenage daughter. But we got a deal on groupon. Out of the three attractions at Mariners square, this was the most enjoyable
