Walk through the museum and read and see depictions of freak events and oddities. Be carefull to check when it's open during the winter months it closes for several days during the week in slow months.

Anyone under the age of 16 would find this museum boring. There is not much interactive parts in the museum.. As for adults, make sure you take your time and walk slowly or it will be over fast. Not anything great, but nice stop to do one time. Would not pay to go again

This place was quite disappointing compared to the one we went to in Orlando,FL it is quite small and there isn't a gift shop when you finish there is a arcade.

I would like to say that this wasn't what I expected. It was way more than I ever thought. They had everything strange and each of my kids found a interest in them. I will definitely refute this to anyone who travels to Myrtle Beach. They have the friendliest people and amazing exhibits.

Carole assisted us in our selection of the museum and offered other Ripley attractions as well. She was very friendly and informative. My daughter and I had a great time in the museum and stopped to read/participate in/listen to almost every item. We took our time and enjoyed it immensely.

This was our first time in the museum and we had a BLAST! My 9 yr old son had a great time looking at the exhibits and learning about some of the items they had! I most definitely recommend a combo pass for the aquarium and the museum. Although the downside is they are not in the same area. The... More

My daughter and I had time to kill while the guys played golf, so we decided to come. It was small, but just the kind of quirky, interesting stuff you'd expect to find in a Ripley's Believe it or Not museum. We had a fun time! Carol at the entrance desk was especially delightful and welcoming!

I was expecting more exhibits but what they had was pretty cool. The restroom is pretty hard to find so if you're traveling with kids, take care of that first. Give yourself enough time, there's a bit of reading involved. Unlike most museums, you're allowed to take pictures.
