Okay

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".

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

Ripley's adventures are chronicled on a small scale in this museum. It's interesting if you take the time to explore and read. There was a lot of information and I think it's best to take your time. Probably not a good place for younger kids since there isn't a lot of visual stimulation without some intellectual interaction. It was fun... More

It was nice to sit in the smaller theatre. Have been there several times over the last few years when in town visiting family, it's always been clean, the crew friendly and the top films available.
