Nothing super great.

It's ok. Nothing spectacular, but gives you something to do on a rainy day. The best part was the interactive room where the kids could "play."

I can not say enough of "GREAT" about Analia who took care of myself and my Granddaugher who has numerous alergies...Analia assured me that we would be safe regarding alergies and personally spoke to my Granddaugher and made her smile and laugh and feel comfortable and welcomed in Myrtle Beach. She took my Granddaughter under her wing and made me... More

We have visited Ripleys in St. Augustine, Fl, and were expecting the same, but were disappointed. Too many exhibits with only pictures or flat screens showing something and not the actual item. Not worth the price of admission.

This was ok to do on a stormy day. We just did the museum even though you can buy a package which includes other attractions. The museum was pretty interesting and we enjoyed roaming around the exhibits. Pricey yes, but believe me, everything is!

We were intown adn took the kids here. We been to Ripleys before in other cities so we just keep checking out new ones as we come across them. This one was nice and laid out easy to navigate. Lots of attractions and things to see. Kids loved the Arcade at the end and had fun taking lots of pictures.... More

Not great. Brought my three year old and husband. Not worth the trip or the money but we can say we went. For example, one exhibit is prison shive ( sharp objects made by prisoners). Why why why????

These guys have it together. Lee and Heather were VERY helpful, and kind. Top notch customer service. Then, when you get in the museum, the stuff is amazing. I've always loved these places. St. Aug, Gatlinburg, and Myrtle (I'm sure there are more, but these three I can attest to). I think the best part were some of the indiginous... More

Carol the cashier was very friendly and informative. The exhibits were nothing great. I used to love going to Ripley's but this one just wasn't good. I would not go again.

If you have been to one you have seen them all. But if you have never been in one they are definitely interesting. Our children loved it. The exhibits are rare things or people that you will not see at any other attraction. A must see for first timers!
