Went with my 15 and 16 year olds. Place is fairly small, but interesting. Take the time to read each exhibit, otherwise you'll be done in 10 min. There are hidden passages that were fun to find. My son really seemed to like it and he was the one that didn't want to go in the first place. The gift... More

Loved the fact that my teenage boys had fun interacting with the displays and other patrons here. Use the passport to savings!

We stopped here for our kids. They had enjoyed other Ripley's museums that we have visited in other cities. The collection at this one is small and not very interactive. Most of the displays are reading about facts that could be better served in the book. We were disappointing because other Ripley's had more interactive displays.

a bit cramped and a bit on the small side; wish they'd have more stuff. What's there is interesting.

First time in one. It was pretty cool. The granddaughter liked the Duct Tape Room the best. I liked the Shrunken heads.

Ripley's have some interesting stuff, but some is a little boring and seems like they are just trying to fill space. This location does have some interesting interactive displays for our 2 grandsons, that they enjoyed.

Eh. We got the deal to have this visit along with Wizard Quest next door. Son and husband liked it more. There are some little things to look for that made it more interesting. It is somewhat dark. I doubt that the stuff is authentic. There are multiple rooms of stuff and it is pretty creepy. There was a family... More

Very positive review. They do an excellent job with presentation and the layout. Remember to visit the fire place secret passage. . But it has stairs...no strollers. Not wheel chair accessible. And ages 6 and under may not enjoy as much or might even be scared.

My 9 year old loved it! He enjoyed the part about having to find clues. The staff was very friendly. It is pricey for families on a budget.
