Main part was ok, but you won't spend more than an hour there. Some things were interesting, and the set-up was decent. After 30 minutes, it's just too much reading, and a few things aren't as interesting, so the appeal wears off. The mirror maze was a lot of fun. The 4d theater was fun, but nothing too exciting. Doesn't... More

Well worth doing! We didn't do the mirror maze but it looked fun. The walk thru and see, touch and interact was great. Things people have done or lived thru is amazing and Ripley captured a lot of it. Highly recommend.

We had a Groupon deal that got us in to the museum and all three attractions for around $50. That's a win-win, folks! (Tip: save your cash to make a cool waxed-hand creation near the mirror maze and... More

Truly enjoyed the 4-D movies! With the seat moving, snow falling, wind blown, and water splashed was great! Enjoyed it...just wish it was a little longer!

Went with our family of five. Lots of things to read. Had some interactive things to try. Something for all ages. Our 18 yr. old enjoyed it as much as our 8 yr old. Great thing to do to for some nice family time.

I had heard of these before, but never ventured into one. Happened to be by this one for work this week so I stopped in. It was a cheap way to kill a couple hours. Would def bring my kids here.

Our family had a groupon to use for all 3 attractions. First, the oddities attraction was very informative. Lots of things interactive. So much stuff to read and enjoy. Second, there's the mirror maze. This was lots of fun. My 18 year old enjoyed as much as my 8 year old. The mirror maze was designed for you to feel... More
