My husband and I combined the aquarium and the Odditoruim to save some money and visit a few locations. The aquarium was AMAZING but the Odditorium was a bust. Nothing much to look at unless you like only mummy history/facts. A few cool things but not all that impressed. My husband and I went to the location in Baltimore a... More

We, my husband and I didn't visit Ripley's the first year we were in Myrtle Beach, but did this year, and I am glad we did. They have some pretty amazing stuff. A model roller coaster made from match sticks, and lots of other amazing things.

We really enjoyed the exhibits. With a young child its often hard to find things to do that the entire family will enjoy but Ripleys found a way to make it fun for all. We had a great time and plan to go back next year. Found the prices a little high but still a good time.

I thought Ripley's Believe It or Not was a Cool Museum with unique stories and facts about different people and artifacts. I found the tallest man, lizard man, and the roller coaster made out of matches the coolest things I saw there.

There were a few interesting pictures, a fast walk thru, not a destination but if you are in the area it's a good way to pass an hour.

While a majority of the trip was reading things there was a good bit of hands on activities towards the end. A number of which my three year old truly enjoyed. The interactive activity on the floor and the shadow dancing were her overall favorites. I would definitely do this again if given the chance.

It was really interesting in here. If you have children, definitely this is a place to visit. Theres a couple of cool wax figures you can take pics with.

It was okay. Have a few different things on show but most I've have seen on tv or magazine before......

It had some interesting things. Seems a little bit pricey for the tour. Self walking. A ticket price cut would make it more appealing. And update some displays. I knew about several of the stories.
