Have been here a number of times over the years. They haven't added any new things. Still neat to take the grand children to, however, after one time, really isn't worth the money.

This was a very fun unusual event. My wife, son and myself had a blast here though. The price wasn't too bad, and you get to see some really interesting things.

So much fun! The whole family enjoyed the museum. The rotating tunnel was a favorite! The tricks and craziness added to the fun.

Sharon, Glad you and your family enjoyed your visit. I've been working at different Ripley's attractions for years and the rotating tunnel still throws me for a loop sometimes. Thanks for stopping in! More

Second time at the museum and I think they did a few updates. Some odd things, but a lot of history as well. Some inappropriate facts you may have to explain to young children or walk by faster.

All sorts of weird, cool stuff. I mean, really, really weird... but fascinating stuff. Spend the time to really check out each exhibit.

A lot of different displays than I've seen at others. Always fun to see along with all of the familiar displays.

The best part of the going there was the 4D movies I will say I thought it was a tad bit pricey for what they offered but I understand they're making a buck the kids had an alright time but was also our first day down there so we were all a little bit tired

Very small. The hours are good they close at 1am in the summer. But with little children, its not the most exciting attraction. it was nice to walk around and read everything but for other Ripley's I've been too, this one was a little on the boring side.
