I've been to Ripley's twice...once last year and once this year and the exhibits never changed. The thing that's disappointing is that not a lot of the exhibits are "real". Many are just casts or duplicates of oddities. It is fun to see the things that people created - the "art", so I can't complain. I feel like the museum... More

Look around for discounts before you go. My nine year old was uneasy about the torture devices and oddities that were displayed. I wish they had more things to interact with and not just panels on the walls to read.

The museum was full of interesting exhibits. However, a lot of electronic displays were either blank or displaying error messages. The $15 each we paid to tour the museum was not worth it! The entire tour took 40 minutes!!!! Save your money for something more exciting!

I had a blast laughing with my kids in this place! I have always wanted to visit. Originally I booked us for their Haunted House. However, my 15 year old son (who suffers from seizures due to flashing light) could not go in. And my little daughters were scared to death. LOL.. However, the staff suggested we can go down... More

This was a huge hit with our tween! Some of the exhibits were a little gruesome and not really suitable for the under 8 set, but it was entertaining and even informative. Note - there are lots of stairs. I do not know if there is handicapped accessibility.

Great entertainment and a lot to see. Takes close to one hour to see everything and enjoy looking at displays.

We really liked this place. My kids loved the interacting game and also the dancing thing at the end. My kids learned new things. It was not over crowded and was not too long to get through.
