If you are into this kind of stuff, you will enjoy your visit there. Older kids would find it interesting, younger kids I do not think would enjoy.

This was a cool exhibit but not for small children. It would be boring to them. I did enjoy it but it is a lot of reading and not alot of really cool stuff.

Mostly just things to look at not very interactive. Make sure you look for coupons or use your military ID if you have one.

The Ripley's is much like all the others. There may be a few newer exibits. It is in the heart of the grand strand and within walking distance of many nice shops and good food. It is across the street from the boardwalk which is very nice, the sky wheel, and the beach. While you are there be sure and... More

I thought it was done well, you could touch some of the attractions. Like the little fish that nibbled on your hand, to get dead skin off. Not weird at all.

It has been a cold February so we found things to do inside. Older attraction, but my kids enjoyed themselves. The best part was the interaction exhibits towards the end. Over all a decent family place for all ages.

My husband is a South Carolina school teacher so he got in free and I got a discount so we only paid about $7. We had a good time but I wouldn't pay full price for it.

Ripleys is always interesting. It seemed a little old and maybe dirty. I do think that was based on the location though. Content was interesting. We had coupons, but I found it a little pricy.
