Not usually a fan of the carnival type attraction but this was laid out well, offered some interesting exhibits and provided for value entertainment for an hour or so. Kids would probably enjoy much of it too.

Not a well kept museum. A lot of it looked fake & unlike something revamped to mimick an original. I've been to better Ripley Museums. Was here in May 2015, but When Did You Travel dropdown only goes back to August 2015.

I will say this first-- if you use a groupon be prepared to pay a couple dollars for taxes when you redeem the groupon. I had no idea! Glad I had a bit of cash on me😉 it was a neat place. The stuff towards the end was the best part for the 2 kids I had with me. They... More

We recently visited the museum and I have to say, we were not bored. If you don't enjoy reading and are more visual, I don't believe you will enjoy Ripley's as much. It took us about an hour to go through the museum and there are a few things we probably did not finish reading. The price is a little... More

This was one of the first places I visited with my fiancé. Nice place. It's like a small museum. Some cool artifacts and facts about curious things in this world. The tunnel was freaky. I taught I was going to flip upside down and bust my head. I recommend the Vlad the Impaler display. Just go inside and listen and... More
