It has been a dream to visit a Ripley's museum or aquarium and if was so happy we could finally go! It was fantastic and I was not let down or disappointed! They had a really neat gift shop as well.

There was nothing exciting about it and took 5 minutes to get through the place. Definitely do NOT recommend it.

It took us only two hours to go through this attraction ( including watching movies) but kids loved it. We saw both 4d movies which were excellent. Our kids ages 14,11,9,7, and 4 loved everything about this place. It also had two interactive games included with ticket. Our four year old was free which was awesome since Williamsburg was so...

Not a real big place to visit. Some interesting displays but some the same as we saw in Florida. We went just to pass some time while in Williamsburg. A little pricey to visit and I have no desire to go back again. Once is more than enough. They did some neat exhibits, no gift shop, a lazer race game... More

Although the tickets were pricey, we really enjoyed our trip. We were there for over 2 hours. So much to see and do. Loved the crazy tunnel at the end. The movies were pretty cute too.

Guys, I love this place. It is a little pricey but the experience you have here is well worth it. Bring the kids, take a date, go in a group of friends it does not matter. It is enjoyable and you'll see things you don't get to see everyday. All the weird artifacts and history is amazing. I got more... More

We decided to visit the museum since we got rained out of our trip to Busch Gardens.The museum is small but has a lot if little interesting oddities. We had never been to a Ripley's so I think we expected more real things to look at, and we weren't sure what was real and what was replica for some things.... More

We liked the attraction, but it cost $90 for four people and for that price we should have been able to see more than one 4D Movie. My younger son has mild autism and at first found the darkness daunting, but I do understand this is part of the exhibit.

My nephews liked it. The rest of the family thought it was a meager display of fake oddities. It is about what I expected
