I believe this attraction has changed it's name to the Ripley's Odditorium which is a pretty descriptive term for what you will see. This is the oldest of the Ripley's attractions at Myrtle Beach and, despite a few new exhibits, it's age is showing. Many of the oddities are very old and dusty. Most are mildly interesting, like an iron... More

You can bundle 2 ripley experiences and it really is a good deal. We did this and the aquarium, and they had added some things to the this one, including a dance room with lights that's really cool.

The Ripley's museum is an interesting Attraction with many pieces suitable for an entire family. The ability to bundle packages with other Ripley's facilities is a benefit.

We go to this attraction every now and then but not very often. Lots of things to look at but presentations don't change very often and kind of boring. We saw new things this season but not very exciting.

This attraction is okay; the items showcased are clearly replicas and they look fake; the price to enter isn't worth it!

Wow, I've been to quite a few Ripley and this one was not at all interesting or mind boggling. Some of the exhibits were flat out gross and the whole place appeared as if they had run out of things to display and randomly picked items. We were out of there in 10 minutes and sorry we spend the steep... More
