This Baltimore location offers a breathe of fresh air to many of the traditional attractions to the Inner Harbor. I really love the fact that no all Ripley's are the same, thus each experience is memorable, despite the locale. I believe they should add some attractions with a Maryland flare to it.

I generally review 5 star reviews for things that exceed my expectations or that meet very high expectations. Wife and I were both leery of Ripley's, with memory of kind of seedy wax-museum like old Ripley's near Pier 39 in San Francisco (these memories from when we were kids). Expected it to be a real tourist trap. I think we... More

Decided to stop here and check it out while walking around the Inner Harbor. My kids loved it! Lots of "ODD" things to look at. There are some pretty amazing works of art here. LOVE the surprises that jump out at you. Entrance fee is a little high for the length of time and amount of content in the museum.

I didn't know they had one in Baltimore, and I have to tell you, I enjoy it. Be warned, even if it is family oriented, some stuff might scare the little ones. My nephew was scare of the mechanic dinosaur and the lizard man, but mostly, he love it.

Take your time and read about the things you see while you tour. So many things were cool to see but they would have been just mediocre if we didn't see the story behind it. Mirror maze was fun for the kids. The 4D movie was the only thing we thought was lame. Overall, it was a great visit and... More

We went for the museum and mirror maze. The maze was very entertaining but wish I was a bit longer. The museum was neat and intriguing, some of the items were unique and funny. We had a fun time at Ripley's. Really wish we our wax hands "holding hands" but the line was too long the three times we tried... More

We were trying to find something to do at the Inner Harbor, and decided to try it out...we had been to a Ripleys at the Jersey shore a few years ago and we're not impressed. This place surprised us! My husband, myself, my 10 yr old daughter and her BFF were very entertained! We took our time walking around looking... More

Had a good time here. A little overpriced, but it IS a tourist attraction so what can you expect. Good time killer on a hot day. Close to all the other inner harbor attractions. We were here less than an hour and didn't linger much, but might be longer if you were with kids. Bathrooms were very clean and loved... More

Visited Ripley's with family (17 year old girls and 10 year old boy). We had a great time viewing all of the oddities in this museum. The 4-D movie made everyone laugh and the kids enjoyed the mirror maze too. Great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
