“Fantastic fun facts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

I took my older kids to this as i thought some of the things featured might scare the little one, but its not too bad, This is defiantly worth a visit i think we were in there well over an hour, loads of things to look at and fertility statues to touch, things to try and written facts all over the walls, great value for money if you are ever in Blackpool pop in and have a look yourselves you wont be disappointed.

“not good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

we were at the pleasure beach and the tickets were on offer so we went in but it was rather boring. Its over very quickly and not much of the information is original or exciting. Would not waste time or money again.

“ok but not worth shouting about.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

Makes for an interesting short visit though for a couple of pound extra you could visit a real museum.

Good try though

“Good for an hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

We enjoyed our walk around Ripleys and our 10 year old found it fascinating. We had a bit of bother negotiating the stairs with a double buggy and there aren't any toilet facilities but we had anticipated that from our web research.
There is a lot of information to take in and it is mostly humerous but very Americanised.
Good displays and models but they haven't been updated for 15 years since my last visit.
For a family of 5 ( 2 under 3 year olds ) we only paid £10 so a lot better value than the wax works and around the same time too !
Its a bit of a one visit wonder so make sure you take your time and look at everything.

Use a voucher or money off coupon for reduced admission prices
