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.

My kids really enjoyed this. They are 12 and 8. Although they kind of breezed through it--I tried to get them to slow down and read some of the exhibits, they really had fun! We got the package deal with the Wizard's Quest, so I thought that was a pretty good deal.

Our family of four (two teenagers included) enjoyed Ripley's. We went late at night and almost had the place to ourselves! It's kind've creapy and a bit "dusty and old" like many of the reviews indicated, but it was still great fun for the evening. I'd recommend it to others as a good attraction to see in the Dells. Worth... More

We enjoyed going through the exhibit, but was a little disappointed at the size - thought it would have been larger. You can see and read everything in an hour or so. The stuff this Ripley's has is pretty cool and different from others around the country.

I thought it was interesting, but it is not for those with short attention spans and difficulty perusing and reading. There was a great deal to learn, but my boyfriend was bored and tried to zoom me through it quicker than I'd have liked. I have to admit, they start out with some interesting stuff, and they end with some... More

My son is very interested in the Ripley's Believe It or Not books and was very excited to visit the museum. He had a good time and we spent about an hour here. You can find a 20% discount coupon in Wisconsin Dells brochures.

I am always finding somewhere on our trips to go so that we can learn something new. This was a great place for that! Such strange and interesting facts and artifacts! We had fun exploring the little hiding spots and learning about some creepy world history!

Fun for older people. My eleven year old was tired of reading everything to try to understand what the exhibit was about. Cool things in the exhibits.

It was a little disappointing. Most of the displays were small and the descriptions in small print and dark light making them hard to read. Not sure I would spend my vacation dollars here.

I would have been more entertained reading the information on line. Very dark place and you walk around, look at an item, read the history of it and keep walking on. What a waste of my 30 minutes (if even that) and $40.00! Would not recommend at all.
