We stayed next door all week and finally decided to stop in the last day that we were there. Wish we would have saved our money for something else. Mostly just pictures hanging on the walls with stories about the pictures. For what we paid to get in, it was nothing like we were expecting, it was very disappointing. The... More

Interesting but expensive for what it is. Alot of signs to read and young kids would not take the time or parent would have to read. Have to pay extra for interactive games/exhibits.

Loved the piano stairs, endless match stick art, and the interactive exhibits. The hubby and I were surprised by being offered free entrance by an awesome family that had extra tickets. It really made our outing just that more special, but at $20 the entrance cost is totally worth it!!!

Was thinking of something different to do with our family of 3 daughters: 18, 16, & 7. We all really enjoyed this museum. We all learned s lot & found new things that we knew existed. A nice family outing which only took 1 1/2 hrs in the a/c on a very hot day.

Definitely a must see for kids! Ours are 14-7 so they could read and enjoy the attractions. Roll your tongue!!!! Hilarious! Bathrooms were immaculate compared to others at AC.

You kind of know what to expect when you go in here, but the kids love it. Takes a while to go through, so it's a good rainy day activity for the family.

This was a total waste of money. My kids were bored to tears. Staff is rude and could care less. Bathrooms are filthy as well. If you do visit this place at least get a groupon and be sure to download 24 hrs before. That is their rediculous policy.

Definitely would recommend – crazy kind of fun and perfect distraction to the whole Atlantic City visit. Get the coupon off their web site, save a buck and take your time – Lots to see and learn about. Mostly items from the private collections of Mr. Ripley but what a great way for someone to share everything they have collected... More
