Ripley's is an interesting experience. I've been to quite a few around the country. Baltimore has the newest one I've been to, it just opened in, I believe, 2012. The exhibits are more modern and not worn. It's a lot of fun to go through....More

This is a great little Ripley's Odditorium to visit! Each Odditorium is different, with different strange and/or amazing things to see. This had attractions ranging from shrunken heads to a matchstick city. It's smaller than the other two Odditoriums I have been to, but still...More

Overall happy with our visit. A bit pricey, but we did the Ripley's and the mirror maze. Our kids (teens) were happy, so that made it worth it. I would agree there are better Ripley's elsewhere.

We have been to 3 Ripley's at this point and each one has unique exhibits. We had a great time. You need to be sure that any young children are not easily spooked. Mine was not and loved it.

Been in a couple of these Ripley's places, and to be fair they are no more than variations on a theme. Would I go back to one; yes, if it was raining and that was the indoor option.
