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

Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum is a pleasant distraction. It is a place to stroll and explore the strange, the unusual and the unexpected. Besides the displays and artifacts, the place surprises that will give a chuckle to guests both young and old. The disappearing beach goer along, a 'collapsing' balcony and a disorienting rotating tunnel are some of... More

I had seen Ripley's only as a cartoon strip in magazines and newspapers, and had never imagined I will be in Atlantic city and see the museum.

Located right on the Boardwalk ... across the Central Pier Arcade. Very amusing museum. The price is of $17 +tx… but if you on their website, you will find... More

Visited Atlantic city during a rainy day and this was a perfect place to visit and get away from it. The place has a lot of interesting and fun exhibits to explore.We spent about an hour at this place, and did not do the laser, seemed like something for young kids.

This museum is just a fun place. Odd little tidbits about history and places in this world. There is definitely something that would interest everyone in the group. For me, it was the French Chateau miniature room.....FABULOUS! For my boyfriend it was probably the shrunken heads....or maybe the weird medical/accident displays.

I went to Believe it or not last year and we enjoy it. It is small, but interested and I loved specially the bridge that make you feel like you were turning 180 degrees while you walk on it.

Very reasonably priced. There is so much to see. I spent hours in the museum with my 11 year old son. This is a must do attraction when visiting Atlantic City with your children.
