We enjoyed the wax figurines and the diversity and layout of them. They were very realistic and we found some of the scenes to be emotionally moving. Our favorite, as always, is the basement area which is dark and spooky. We went at night, right...More

We visited the wax museum as part of a combo ticket to the Believe It or Not collection next door. The displays were not eye-catching and several figures did not resemble who they were supposed to be. The horror section was not bad, but one...More

We love visiting this place when we travel to San Antonio. A ticket for only this part of Ripleys is a little overpriced, though.

This was actually a fun visit with my teenagers. There was a Halloween section which was nicely done. It was worth visiting - especially if you have teenagers or younger in your party.

The Wax museum is reasonably priced and most are so realistic. Spend an enjoyable time walking and looking.

The museum was part of a package, I would have been very upset had I not utilized 2 attraction package. Quite literally only two figures looked like the people they were aiming to be. Disappointed to say the least.
