This is a good place if you like Oddity!

I don't think we'd go back but it was decent. Lots of cool stuff just not very exciting and very typical of a dells attraction.

Came here as an add on with Wizard Quest. Would not have come if we didn't buy the package deal. The elementary school kids were not interested in stopping and reading and kept on walking. Some of the exhibits were interesting, coming from a person in the medical field, but again kids didn't care. Kids did enjoy the "raiders of... More

I felt that this place was complete waste of money. So much of it seemed questionable as far as it's authenticity. The information given in some of the exhibits was wrong. the lighting was so poor that you couldn't see a lot of the items displayed. It was smelly and dirty. Don't waste your money.

This was pretty cool but was expensive for what it was. I probably would have saved my money than going if I knew. Not worth it.

No Ramp so parents traveling with a stroller hopefully your kids are able to walk. I have two toddlers I'm glad my husband was with me otherwise we would of missed two floors. I feel I should have been informed there was no ramp or elevator when they opened the door for the stroller to come in. Exhibits were OK.

My son loved Ripley's! It's an interesting museum, but definitely more fun for kids/teens. We were there just a few weeks ago, and they told us that they're getting ready to change some of their exhibits. Apparently, this happens often, so if it's been a while since you've seen it, you haven't seen it! Definitely worth the cost of admission!

This was an average attraction. A little over-priced, but some neat things to see. We were not blown away by any means.

It was kind of interesting, the secret tunnels and little tricks were fun. Overpriced though, in my opinion, for what it was. Im not sure what I expected, but something a little more substantial.
