The Museum was really neat with some pretty odd things etc. The mirror maze with separate admission was OK at best. Mostly where there were a group of kids hanging in middle drinking. Would do museum again and skip the maze.

Took our 13 year old grandsons to Ripley's Believe it or Not and they just loved it. I did not think I was going to get them out of there. This place is odd but wonderful. Would highly recommend giving it a try when you are in Ocean City Maryland. Kathy Young Hummels Wharf, PA

I've been to Ripley's Museums at other locations and this one was the best. It had so many very interesting things to see, read and learn about. Some of the exhibits were interactive too. This location also had a separate Mirror Maze that I would also highly recommend. A must see if you're in Ocean City, MD.

We took our grandchildren to this museum at their request. We all had fun looking at all the interesting oddities that are gathered together inside the museum. Be sure to use the restroom while you are there (even if you don't have to ... be sure you go inside the restroom anyhow!) Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Excellent entertainment for the family at a relatively cheap price. Its better than a museum and wish you stayed longer.

After walking by this place for years we finally went in. Took the better part of an hour but it was great. Kept our grandson engaged the entire time. Money well spent on the Boardwalk

There just wasn't that much to see in this Ripley's. Save your money. A lot was fake, and more fake.
