Ripley's
Sep 2021
It was interesting with the strange things that were displayed. It was a little high in price for the size of the display. the theater was very cool with many sensations and surprises.

Interesting museum
Aug 2021 • Family
This is an interesting museum full of random oddities. The museum is enjoyable but seemed a little less engaging than other Ripley's I've been to. The adults, pre-teen, and teen in our group didn't really find the 4D movies to add value or adventure. I'd perhaps do one but certainly wouldn't add on the second one if I were to do it over again. Overall, I'd say this was an average museum - I guess it probably depends more on your interests.

Save your money for something else

This Ripley's is very small. The most exciting parts are the add on activities that have long lines, making it very crowded. The exhibits are somewhat interesting but we’ve been to another Ripley’s in Baltimore and it was far superior.

It’s okay!
Jul 2021 • Family
Although we had fun, we were kinda bored too. We enjoyed some of the oddities, the lazer room and some of the strangest things. I don’t however, think young kids would enjoy this. My son is 9 and just was afraid of a lot of the stuff on display.

Fascinating Place

We spent a couple of hours looking through the many interesting items throughout the whole place. Many interesting items that were really fun to learn about.

We went to wile away an hour or two. The employees were helpful and pleasant. Place is very clean and has some interesting artifacts. We even did the 4D movie and found it enjoying. We would recommend this place.

Fun and interesting
Feb 2021
We visited Ripley’s on Presidents Day. We were a group of three adults, one tween, and three teens. We all enjoyed walking around and looking at the exhibits. The kids were engaged and showing each other things, reading the descriptions, and calling us over to show us and discuss things. This means it was a hit. Something that is not always easy to get with all of them. All four of the children enjoyed the Laser race and the Atomic rush. They asked to go a 2nd time on both. They were laughing and enjoying themselves. We also did the 4D theater and all enjoyed that. It was a fun few hours and I would recommend.

We were pleasantly surprised!
Dec 2020
I read some of the negative reviews prior to getting tickets but we still wanted to give it a try. We were very pleased with our experience! It's been a long time since I've been to a Ripley's but from what I remember, this one is smaller than the others I've seen. Still though, there are plenty of very interesting things on display here for you to enjoy! Some of my favorites were the golf ball used on the moon, a 5,000 year old meteorite, and a piece of coal recovered from the Titanic just to name a few. Oh, and the tunnel was the family's favorite! I'm surprised more people didn't post the large variety of photos highlighting all that this place does actually have to offer. So read my great review in the midst of some of the other ones and give this place a shot! I think you will really enjoy it!

It was okay
Aug 2020
I felt that this was a bit expensive, but it was raining and we had no plans, plus my son wanted to go and it was his birthday. I've been to several Ripley museums and this one is pretty much like all the rest of them.

Not worth it
Feb 2020 • Couples
We were pretty disappointed. The place is pretty small & it didn't take long at all to look at everything (45 minutes). The atomic thing & lazer were located each in a small room, not much to it. Everything just seemed cheesy & out of date. The 4D movie was cute, but still not worth it. Wish we would have done something else to be honest.

Hi Kimmyann, We are sorry and surprised to hear about your disappointment with seeing it all in 45 minutes. We have two double feature 4D films that takes time to experience, not to mention over 350 exhibits including new interactive activities. We do appreciate your visit and review. Thank you Bill
