“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We paid to do all three areas of Ripley's and didn't really think it was all that interesting. There wasnt really anything that stood out or had the wow factor for adults or children.

“As fun as all other locations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This museum is educational and fun at the same time. The wax figures are also great. Fun for all ages.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We went to just the wax museum. It was enjoyable. Some of the displays were in need of repair, but over all good. A little pricey. Something different to do though.

“Must Stop By the House of Wax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It was a spacious place, plenty of room to walk around, and the exhibits were extraordinary. I would definitely love to go back and see it all again, and more than likely will. The only thing I would suggest is that if you bring small children with you, PLEASE keep a close eye on them. It isn't very pleasant for other visitors when they want to take a picture and someone's kid is climbing all over the figure.

You can get a combo pack with the wax museum and ripley's believe it or not for under 20.00 for both. Go to San Antonio.com
