Very interesting display, could spend a good few hours if you wanted to. Could do with a few more places to sit down for disabled visitors like me as its tiring walking but on the whole very good.

Visited here Wednesday 20th July, it was quite reasonable in terms of price, but you can get discounted tickets from the tourist information centre. There are a collection of interesting, weird and unusual items to look at. There are also a couple of TVs with short videos of unusual human talents which are also quite interesting. We spent a good... More

Not sure what I expected, we only went because the kids have one of the books about ripleys at home. For something you can only walk through once (even though the woman at the desk the night before told us you could go through as many times as you wanted on the same day- which apparently isn't true), its not...

My teenage sister and I recently enjoyed a mid-week Blackpool trip and decided to visit Ripley's one afternoon when we had some free time. At £6 admission was cheap and it gave us some shelter from the rain for a while. Plenty of interesting and informative displays. Lots of and weird and wonderful (and sometimes pretty gross) stuff to catch... More

I like the bizzarreness of some of the things on display here, and I am guessing that the Blackpool version of Ripley's is the poor relation to it's American one. It was good while away an hour or so - but you just feel that everything there is a bit fake. Almost as if it is copy of the real... More

It's ok to kill an hour or two on a rainy day, some things were interesting, staff were friendly enough. It's clean and tidy.

Online price was 4£ so it's something to do if you haven't been before, lots of thing are actually in the similar thing inside the pleasure beach but still pretty good and killed an hour.

Me, my partner and my young son visited here whilst at Blackpool Pleasure beach. My partner enjoyed reading about the exhibits and finding out the facts. I however spent the time trying to keep my young son entertained as there isn't much for yound children to do as there was nothing aimed at them. The spice girl exhibit was incredible... More

I went in more out of curiosity than anything as never been in before. To say I was underwhelmed is an understatement. I have no idea what the spice girls have to do with this and seems to have just been added like an after thought. This exhibition does finish at the end of June however and will hopefully be...
