There were many displays and pictures, but hardly any actual items. I have been to Ripleys in FL and it was much better!

We did enjoy the museum however it definitely was not what we expected. We payed $130ish for the museum and aquarium (see other review) and didn't necessarily feel like we got our money's worth from the museum.

The museum was ok. I felt like it wasn't much in there to WOW the young kids or teenagers. However, Carol was thee best when greeting us. She was so pleasant and helpful.

Had a wonderful chat with Carol at the front entrance! She was so kind and helpful! You definitely need more employees like her ;) There were some interesting things in the place, but not enough for me to ever come back. I wasn't impressed. Seem to be very repetitive, also. I only gave the place 4 stars because Carol was... More

We had fun with our kids here! Carol at the desk was very nice and helpful! I wish the museum was a bit bigger for the money but a lot of interesting things were in the museum! Be careful at the iron maiden!!

Ripley's Believe it or Not is a great place to spend your morning or afternoon while you visit Myrtle Beach! This museum was fun for the whole family. Very interesting facts, history, memorabilia, and pretty crazy exhibits! Believe It or Not! Plan to spend several hours. It is much larger than appears. The museum exits directly into an arcade.

Carol was by far the most helpful person i encountered on our recent trip to myrlte beach. She made our experience so much more enjoyable. I see alot of reviews saying young children wont enjoy. my kids ages 5 and 7 had a blast. They are still talking about the exhibits we saw.

We took a break from the beach to go to the Mirror Maze and the Ripley's Believe It or Not. Our ticket sales person, Analia, was fantastic. She was professional and friendly, gave us the best advice and we had a great time because of her. The Mirror Maze was fun for our three daughters, ages 8, 6, and 3.5.... More
