I've lived here in Dallas for over 3 years and didn't actually care to go but now that I've moved out of state, I finally figured I should tour on my visit to Dallas with friends. We did the Ripley's museum and mirror maze and it was a blast!! The museum was a tad bit boring but it was a... More

I have been to wax museums all over this country and this location is my LEAST favorite. It is WAY too expensive for what you get which is a room of celebrities, a room of presidents and then a whole bunch of Jesus. Seriously... at least half of the rooms in the wax museum area are bible themed. The place... More

I took my 8 year old. He loved it. There were lots of interesting things for a child that age to look at. The mirror maze was fun! And the laser area was good for him. The rest kind of cheesy!

We took our kids ages 11 & 13 to the Museum and did the 4 for 1 price combo. This was the best deal and included entrance into the odditorium, wax museum, hall of mirrors and laser maze. Both of my kids loved this and were entertained the whole 3.5hrs we were there. I think this would be good all... More

I have to say this was the biggest surprise to all of us. The hall of mirrors was awesome as was the whole set up. 2 12 yr olds who loves it. Entertaining for all ages. Worth evey peny.

I think stuff like this is awesome. Would have liked to have seen a few more exhibits in the Ripley's, but was some interesting things to see nonetheless. Wouldn't mind going to more around the country.

Fun experience! Loved the mirror maze and the laser race! Initially thought the wax museum was just ok, then we saw presidents and made it to the 'fear' portion. It got much better!
