This museum has very little hands on and is mostly reading. There is one exhibit at the very end that is fun for a family, but other than that this particular Ripley's is more adult focused. It only took us about 45 minutes to go through the whole thing and that is with 3 children so for $15 a person... More

I'm a 41 yr old mom who was dragged in by my 19 yr old son, lol... but I ended up enjoying it just as much as he did! So many interesting things there but to fully enjoy you must read a lot as you walk through. Little kids will enjoy it though; there's plenty to just look at and... More

We had a great time visiting the museum on our trip to Myrtle beach. Carol greeted us with a smile, and explained the prices and options nicely. We especially enjoyed the movement and dance exhibit as well as the many Interesting facts.

Considering the fact that the whole family looks reading/looking at the Ripley's Believe It Or Not books each year, the museum was boring. It didn't take long to walk through and the displays were really boring. Out of all the places that we had gone to on this day, we felt ripped off when it came to visiting the museum.... More

I really did not want to go here but my granddaughter did. It was a lot of fun for about an hour. The last room is a game room open to the street so be prepared to say yes or no to the kids.
