We stayed at a hotel across the street, and it was drizzling and chilly the day we checked in, so after we got settled, we decided to visit Ripley's. If you've been in a Ripley's anywhere else in the country, you know what to expect, but what makes this cool is that it is the first one, and in Robert... More

Having grown up watching Jack Palance host Ripley's Believe It Or Not! this definitely doesn't disappoint! Equal parts weird, macabre, and fascinating the museum is interactive, fun, and historical sociology study. You can tell that some of the exhibits have been around for a while but that's not a negative, it's awesome to see in person some of the things... More

Ripely's is your atypical tourist trap, but it's where the grandkids wanted to go. It is NOT worth the money, even with a combo ticket discount. With that being said, it is an American icon of a place to visit, even if it is a tourist trap!

This place is so much fun. One room just completely freaked me out. It was not very crowded when I went so walking in the rooms by myself with things looking back at me unnerved me just a bit. LOL! It is a great place to go and well worth the money. Very interesting stuff and the place is huge.

We just recently when to this attraction and recommend it highly. It has three floors of exhibits and each is more interesting than the last. It is great if you like museum type of this but it probably would be boring for young children. There are some hands on exhibits that would interest children but not enough to fully occupy... More

Only for the gullible or young kids. The price of admission is $17, and we were bored after the first ten minutes. It was very obvious to us that many of the claims and exhibits are not genuine.
