It is what it says one the tin. A place full of weird and wonderful exhibits to entertain all ages. Plenty of interactive components as well which made it great fun.

One of the days we had in N.Y., the rain poured down, so this was good fun for a couple of hours. Not much different that other places.

The only Ripley's that is this good is in San Francisco.Be advised that to save money, you can book tickets online..BUT what I didn't know is that the people who hand out the coupons across the street from Ripley's, actually have better deals than online!

Great museum with one qualm so major that it will dissuade me from visiting again. The support staff needs to be more diligent in taking care of the art. I have included pictures of a train-set made entirely from matches. It's such an utter beauty...More
