Something to waste some time on a rainy day

This place is smaller than it looks. Went because we got the aquarium and another attraction with our tickets.

It's over-priced, but then many things are in a tourist area. They will try to sell you on a package for multiple things, but unless you *really* want to see the aquarium or are dying to do a mirror maze (don't- seriously- it's easy and a waste of money- we tried it so you don't have to!), skip the up-sell....

Everything in here my children have already seen on Google! Don't waste your time or money! This was a walk throug exsibit. I kept waiting for the real wow!! It never came! $65 wasted! Not to mention its downtown where the scene is pretty rough. Save your money and head to Broadway on the beach!!

family of 5 and all were disappointed in this one compared to two other locations we had been to previously. There was much less to see. More papers to read on the walls, but less actual tangible stuff.

The staff was friendly, and the things they had inside (though small) were very interesting and educational. Though the price of admission was a bit high for what you get, this is to be expected (but it wasn't bad!). Kids would probably enjoy this.

It was an OK visit. Some cool things to see and a few neat things to learn about but kind of on the boring side.

I don't know if the air was broke or what but it was very hot. I enjoyed it, but Ripley's Believe It or Not did not hold my 12 year old sons interest for long.

Look at it online and you will see everything in the museum it is over priced for what you get. Staff spoke very little english so asking any question was pointless. will not go back

I love this place! Very cool exhibits and a lot of them are interactive. You never know what is around the next corner, and it is one of the most interesting attractions in Myrtle Beach. If you love the unordinary, you better visit this place.
