, Very good, interesting but we paid for the extra activity, but we thought that was a waste of time and money, going into a lift to see a so called type cave. The place itself was very interesting and unique. Family participation is encouraged.

I went to the one in Baltimore first, so I didn't plan to see this one at first. But they open late (until midnight or 11 pm the day I went) and sell combo ticket to Madame Tussauds (at the same place as Ripley's), and...More

I thought it would be fun to visit, but honestly I got through it so fast to just get done with it. It’s not a must, but if you like Ripley’s so much, why not?! :)

A great time at Ripley's we enjoyed all the interesting collected items and the stories behind them. Learned a lot about things I did not know about before I went. The kids really enjoyed themselves, almost had to pull them out of the place.

Attraction is run down and expensive. The exhibits look more like carnival attractions. We only went because we had one attraction left on our city pass at the end of our trip. Can't believe people pay $35 each to see this stuff.

Wouldn’t pay $1 to walk around again. Very poorly done and you could walk the full exhibition in 15mins if you wanted. Some of the sections are poorly done. The only high lite was the Zoltar machine

It's a fun diversion if you've never been, and the staff made it even better. Venus checked in on us and helped us find the coolest treasures. Thanks Venus!

It wasn’t what I thought it would be & I can’t quite believe it’s an attraction, I thought it would be much more interactive & less factual

It was a fun trip. Only thing that I wish is that I felt like some of the exhibits were a little short and not very detailed. I wish there was more info on all of the exhibits.

If you ask the reception about online price they match it for you so instead of $34 you pay $24. This place is rather fun, we spent a good hour and half and actually enjoyed it. This museum isn't that suitable for young children as...More
