This small "museum" is what you'd expect--full of oddities and interesting pieces from Ripley. It entertained us for a good hour on a chilly afternoon. My 14 year old son thought it was very interesting--and he's a tough customer.

We really had a fun time. It really has changed since we last went years ago. Loved all the new stuff, they even have secret chambers to find.

I’ve been here twice and love it so much!!!! They periodically change the displays which is cool. It’s super fun and worth the money. There is quite a few “adult” displays (which show mutilation, blood, etc.) which I don’t think are appropriate for little ones,...More

it is a self-guided tour, so it is up to you! We have had guests go through in 20 minutes (not recommended) and others stay up to 2 hours. :)
