5 stories of Ripley's discoveries, stories under every topic were not all legible as not enough lighting. Not worth the entrance price.

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its

Yes you can just walk past the counter directly into the museum. You only have to get your ticket checked after you get up the stairs.
