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

if you have watched ripley's believe it or not on tv you have probably seen the most interesting items in this museum. it was a little cheesy but if i didn't have such high expectations for it i would have enjoyed it 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.

It's purely a tourist attraction. We went in for something to do to kill some time while waiting for another adventure to start... it was funny, silly, and not particularly worth the cost of admission, but at the same time, sometimes you have to do the silly expensive tourist traps. It was fun for what it was. There were some... More

Ha ha ha, You are greeted by the "one and only" Big Foot which made a great picture. We liked the out of space area, the shrunked head video. A fun place to go to spend a couple of minutes.

I hadn't been to a Ripley's before so I don't really have a point of comparison. Overall though I was pretty underwhelmed by this. It seemed like there was not very many actual exhibits and a lot of filler. Maybe if you really need something to do but there are a lot of other things in this area.

A very interesting attraction! Many things that are on display or video... A rather fun place to go through. I would suggest your children be a little older to go through this attraction though.
