I really don't understand the bad reviews for this attraction. I think Ripley's attractions are OK, not great but not bad. As popular as they are a lot of people like them and they are very popular. If you like those types of museums you will like this one. There were several interactive parts and lots of interesting stuff. I... More

This museum was run down and out of date. Some of the facts were fun and a few of the interactive exhibits were entertaining, but this was not as amazing as I hoped. Some of the exhibits were out of date and no longer valid and some were not working. At the end, there was a chance to break a... More

By the looks at the entrance, it looks pretty cool, but defiantly a let down. Most of the interactive things didn't work at all or work properly. Kids just walked right through it only stopping a few times. Just a little disappointed. Most of it was wax figurines or pictures of things.

Most of the interactive exhibits did not work at all and the ones that did were not working correctly. Some interesting facts, but overall waste of time and money. Very disappointing and will not be back.

This place was outdated , over priced, and over crowded. I am very disappointed. Most of the interactive stuff was broken and the few that worked were being used . We went into one room and the interactive portion was broken so it was making a loud beeping noise, we couldnt even stand to stay in the room to enjoy... More

Way overpriced! Everything to interact with was broken or occupied! And if you have any of the books, you already know everything in the museum. They even make you exit out to a side street, and walk around to the front!!! You couldn't pay me to go back!!! It was barely enjoyable!

EVERYTHING THAT YOU COULD INTERACT WITH WAS BROKE AND OUT OF SERVICE. I know now why you exit out the back on a side street. Its so you have time to cool off before cussing out the management asking for a refund.

It was ok but I've read the books and so there was really nothing special there. It was that bad but not really worth it.

My kids enjoyed the hopscotch game and kicking the soccer ball at the screen but other than that it was absolutely a complete waste of time. Don't waste your money!
