We went here during our last visit to the Dells. We had also been there the year before that. Parking is a little crazy in that area. It's in the downtown area of the Dells. If you go in the middle of the afternoon, expect LOTS of traffic and people walking around. Nothing really changed inside Ripley's from they year... More

Not only is it expensive but it is terrible. The exhibits are cheaply made and fake looking. Plus you can get through the entire museum in about 15 minutes. Do not waste you money!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Odditorium. We are sorry that it was not to your satisfaction. Many others have enjoyed learning about the strange things Robert Ripley discovered in this world. We are working on bringing more updated exhibits to our attraction. We appreciate your opinion.

It's one of things you do in Vegas when your with friends and had a few drinks and it is after 1am. Unfortunately, it was Sunday morning at 10am with two children. The 12 year old found it really cool (skulls, oddities and vampires) the 5 year old was scared to enter the next room. The place was a tourist... More

I've been to the Dells many times but haven't ever stopped here. We were very pleasantly surprised. There were many different displays and secret hidden rooms and artifacts. Don't miss 'the Dark Side of Ripley" behind the fire place. It was reasonably priced, and it had an awesome gift shop at the end.

I love this place! So fun...they have wonderful tributes to Robert Wadlow, the world's tallest man. They have a gate that I never figured out how to open, but then they showed me. I highly recommend taking the kids here, it makes education fun!

My husband, 11 year old & I thoroughly enjoyed Ripley's! I hadn't been here since I was about 13 & it was just as much fun as an adult, if not more. We spent a good hour walking around and only realize now that we missed some things. We will surely be back when we visit the Dells again in... More

Much like any other Ripley's place. Is informative and interesting. Most displays have been on the Ripley's Believe it or Not TV show. Small gift shop. Some of the display areas were too dark to even read the accompanying information. Could use some more lighting.

For what the ticket cost to enter this attraction it was not worth it at all. The place was very old, dusty and dirty. Half of the lights were out on the attractions so you couldn't see the item nor read the placard. Don't bother with this.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our attraction. In a place where the public is allowed to roam freely many things will get broken and dirty. We are continually maintaining and doing our best to keep things show worthy. Thanks for your response as we always love to hear what guests have to say (good and bad) More

This was a "ok" stop but nothing to write home about. Price is too high for experience. A few cool things. Make sure to watch for the "extra" ways to see things. Fireplace bad prisoner cage.
