I went while I was on vacation with my youth group and while I was reluctant to go at first, I was glad I went after it was over. I learned a lot of cool information and saw many models of world records. This was a good way to kill time. I wouldn't recommend this if you dislike reading because... More

This exhibit was satisfactory. We bought the 3 attraction visit tickets (a total of $89) online so we decided to go here as one of our places. This place has the same exact set ups as the Guinness world records museum so I do NOT suggest to go to both of these places. It took us about 10 minutes at... More

I love strange things about people and places, and always enjoy Ripley. There are some places that are dark and may be scary for young children, but there is also cool stuff for the younger group.

Super Cool! Came here with the family. We purchased the combo ticket. And chose this as well as the Ripley s Oddities and the Aquarium. Really enjoyed everything. This is great for all ages.

Bought package to aquarium plus 2 events. Self guided tour with lots to look at. Some fun interactive things to do. Took us about an hour because we wanted to read and look at everything. Great for a rainy day.

The teens and even the younger in our group loved the attractions/exhibits. Very interesting. Spent several hours viewing the exhibits they offers. Several floors. Elevator available for those that are unable to climbs stairs, which one in our party was happy to utilize. Worth the visit, especially if you have never been to one. Also has military discount available which... More

Very interesting place. Has a little bit of everything to see. We spent around 3 hours looking and reading all the stuff they had. There are lots to see here. We bought online tickets and got to do a pick 3 so we paid 80$ for 2 tickets to 3 places so it was totally worth the money. A parking... More

Probably our favorite attraction from this trip! The younger kids thought it was creepy - and it is a little bit! You even have to check out the bathrooms! A lot of interactive attractions here too. Very interesting and educational.

We have never done one of these but left entertained. The kids loved the third floor and I loved watching them dance in the dance room. Lots of hands on activity to keep everyone happy.

Really enjoyed, much better than expected. I thought we were going to fly thru with little to see. If you are interested in weird and different things you will enjoy this. There are things to see and do for everyone.
