Having seen the photos friends brought back from Ripleys locations such as Vegas and the maritimes, I was excited to see this one. What an over priced disappointment! Dark, dingy, and with placards too small and poorly lit to read. There are some passageways and things kids would like, but a two headed calf skull and a likeness of a morbidly obese man don't really make a "museum". It's really not worth the money

This "museum" is exactly as advertised-it's a freak show and oddities collection. Brief descriptions of items on display. Takes around an hour or better if you are reading the material. Kids under 10 never seem to read, so they buzz through it and then backtrack whining to parents about when they can leave. Older kids and kids patient enough to discuss what they are seeing will like it.

Cheesy five and dime show. Not a lot to see. Old, dusty and dirty. Doesn't do the show any justice. Only about 5 small rooms of junk. Only room that were kind of enjoyed was the tomb room. It was like a search and find

Great for the kids, nice set up with secret passages and areas. Just what I expected. Gift shop was well priced, affordable for the kids, so they were able to get souveniers. Value tickets available with Wizard Quest and 4D Theater, definitely the way to go.

There are some interesting things to be seen here. Don't ask the staff for insight for the signs and history. They simply are paid more to upsell you to see some 4D movie and/or make the company more money. I quizzed two employees about some inconsistencies of the signs and pictures, but no one could answer. This is overpriced and you should stick with mowing lawns. Sorry.
