Went to ripleys with. 4 and 9 year old they thought it was cool, had to explain most of what they were seeing. Loved the temple where you went in each room looking for a symbol to unlock a mystery. Kids loved the secret third level and cool spiral staircase. Not to bad 4 year old wasn't scared did ask... More

We spent about an hour of time walking through the exhibits. There is a description of the items they have on display. Some of it interesting and some not so interesting. Little kids have to have the signs read to them and often don't really understand. My teenager only found it moderately entertaining. My opinion is that it's over priced.... More

This is a fun museum. If you spend the time and review everything, you can spend well over an hour. I went with my wife, 2 children, and mother-in-law. They all enjoyed it. I would have given it 5 stars, but it was a bit pricey. If you like trivia and oddities, definitely check it out.

It had lots of interesting stuff but for the price thought there would be more to see. Did like that they had some strange and interesting stuff from Wisconsin included.

Expected more activities for the kids, but they had neat things to see. A little gross for the kids, and the temple area was fun, but nothing over the top. A little pricey.

I had heard that Ripley's has weird and interesting exhibits, but I thought it would be more light and family friendly. Most of the exhibits were focused on death, killing, medieval torture or African tribal gods. There were two or three exhibits that we actually found interesting, but overall, it was a pretty disappointing trip and definitely not worth the... More

I have been to several of the Ripley's events. I would have to say that this one, when compared to others is a little on the sad side. It was still good because of the last interactive portion, however I think that as far as the "Believe it or Not" aspect there was nothing strange and unusual to view.

It had lots of things to look at. Some of the displays needed better lighting to see the items and read the 'stories' about the exhibit. Don't know if it was worth the money.

The descriptions were exact. The cost is fair if you spent your time looking and appreciating everything this site has to offer. Easy to get to and no long lines to get in!
