The kids and the adults loved coming here. The 4D movie was great. There are also a laser thing and something like Simon Says (press the colors) that was so much fun. All of these are separate tickets and remember that once you leave the museum you can't go back in (the 4D movie is outside the theater, but you... More

This museum is fine for what it is. A little museum that is best visited when the weather keeps you from other activities. My young daughter - age 4 - was freaked out by some of the stuff so beware if you have little ones. Other than that, a nice place to visit.

Most of the stuff was remakes, but interesting anyway. This was a typical Ripley's Believe it or Not, nothing extraordinary.

Lots of things to see and some things you can take part. Your ticket gives you some lazer games to play and be a part of, the kids enjoyed this.

There are plenty of unique and fascinating things to see and do at Ripley's, but you must take your time to get your money's worth! A common complaint seems to be that it is "too pricey," but if you take your time to stop and smell the roses, you will get your money's worth. There are rooms upon rooms upon... More
