“Yes!”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

I do BELIEVE!!! Must Visit in Newport. Great place to take kids eight and over, younger kids tend to get scared by the figures. Combo ticket is a great deal to see all three attractions.

Ripley's was entertaining and worth seeing! I would take the time to see it again when we have time.

“Fun for kids”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

We visited Newport every summer when I was a kid, and Ripley's many times. It is memorable even years later, but not particularly awe-inspiring or educational. If you are visiting this part of the coast with your grade-school age kids, give it a try.

“Waste of money”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

This was really lame. Not only would it have cost us over $10 a piece to tour it, none of the exhibits were "real" They were reproductions of things that had been supposedly been discovered. The only cool things were feeling how cold the water would have been if you had fallen off the titanic and the star room. Other than that, I didn't even really have the energy to read all of the little info plaques. Lame and dark and I don't think even kids would like it unless they were maybe 11-13.
