I have been to several Ripleys Museums in my lifetime. This one was my least favorite, but still entertaining. My kids loved it and it was their first time! They love the books and couldn't wait to come check out the museum. Kind of pricey and several displays do need some updating but overall an enjoyable time. Carol at the... More

This is an interesting place, that's for sure. If you've never been, then go, but know that like everything else, it's a little pricey. It could use some updating, but if you have kids, they will love it.

This is mostly reading wall posters and watching some videos. There are some exhibits that are more than just printed material but not many. Some exhibits have physical objects but they are out in the open so you know they aren't real. There is a fun lighted dance wall that can be seen at several attractions across the country but...

Cashier, Carol, was great! Museum was fun and quirky. Not rocket science, but interesting way to pass a little time.

Was quite interesting but I feel a little outdated. I feel that the price is a little high for what you get.

Ripley's always delivers on it's promise to provide you with entertainment in the form of the weird and the odd. It comes through, again, at Ripley's at Myrtle Beach. If you can't be entertained here, then there isn't much that will get your interest. There are incredible animal life, natural aberrations and human obsessions to fulfill the expectations of just...

This is a great place to visit on rainy days. They change displays frequently so you get to see new things. There are exceptions however. The King Tut exhibit doesn't change but it is still interesting. They have a deal where you can get a ticket for more than one of their attractions and you have up to a year... More
