We have travelled many country's and states and we ALWAYS go to each one we find. There is always interesting, weird and wonderful things to do and you can spend hours there! This one was no exception.

If you look through the Atlantic City papers sometimes you can find a coupon. There's something interesting for everyone from older children to an adult. I recommend visiting there at least once.

Normal price of $16.99 is a bit much for what they have to offer. However, it was well worth the $10 we paid thru Groupon. Ripley's is filled with interesting facts, and interactive games. This attraction is fun for the entire family!!!!

A good stop to spend some time if you have teens or kids, or some inquisitive adults. Lots of decent exhibits, though they dont seem to change much if you've gone in the past year. Price is ok, but it is a tourist area.

Went to Ripleys on a Saturday in December, the place was nearly empty. Outside of the Casinos and cheap tourist shops along the Boardwalk, this is really the only amusement option open during the winter months. This place is really just a walk through museum with displays that you read about, although at the end there is a fun inversion... More

First time visiting a Ripley's museum. We were looking for a place to kill some time before heading to dinner. Ripley's met the task. Was impressed at how many displays were in the building. Price was reasonable and a lot less than I remember the Ripley's in Times Square costing (price at Times Square actually caused us to rethink our... More
