This is the 3rd Ripley's I've visited. Some new and interesting things to see and some repeats. But always interesting. Suggest you buy combo package for this and wizard quest.

I've been visiting Ripley's museums since 1989, when I visited the one in the French Quarter in New Orleans while visiting my sister on a Spring Break trip while still in high school. Having been to the Ripley's museums in New Orleans, Gatlinburg, Branspo, Chicago, and Panama City, we were surprised how comapritively small the Wisconsin Dells museum was. Don't... More

This was probably our 4th or 5th Ripley's and it was by far the best. Buy the combo ticket for Wizardquest if planning on going to both. Great rainy day activity!

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.
