Where Curiosity Lives
Jul. 2021
We last visited Ripley's 10 years ago so decided to do it again, we weren't disappointed they have updated the displays and add some new ones and spread them out easier to move around. lots of interactive displays for kids. We enjoyed our visit for parents with children be aware there are no toilets available. We also did the new 7D Theatre which was fun and over to soon.

Fantastic, must do with older children (7+)
Jul. 2021 • Family
Heaps of fun, plenty of facts, great to do on a rainy winter day and well any day for that matter.
Loved that it was interactive, my ten year old child didn’t get bored and was thrilled to be able to try things out, touch things and compare herself to the tallest man or compare her hand to the largest hand on earth!

Not worth the price
Jun. 2021 • Family
Museum part is very ordinary. Laser race wasn’t working but regardless it was a small and simple room. Not what it was marketed as. Movie takes only a small number people at a time and as such has a long line and a long wait. Not remotely worth the money.

Hi michaelsY5802KW, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am disappointed to hear about your experience and would love to find out more about your visit. We pride ourselves on being a great value for families to spend time together exploring the extraordinary and unusual that Robert Ripley made a household name 103 years ago. Our very recent expansion has added more than 100 new artefacts & interactives, and 3 brand new galleries. The laserace gallery is inside the Believe It or Not! Odditorium attraction and guests can play the game as many times as they want. Our team is always available to help if there are any issues with the game and I apologize if you couldn't enjoy it during your visit. Please contact us at surfersBION@ripleys.com so we can learn more and try to make it right for you.

Very interesting and interactive
May 2021 • Family
We went to Ripleys on a rainy afternoon. Our 3 kids aged 10, 12 & 15 all enjoyed it as did mum & Dad. So many interesting things to see and read about. I’d suggest to not rush through it and take your time to walk through.
A few scary things for younger kids but you can easily scoot them past.

Great all round experience.
Apr. 2021 • Family
Our family of 2 Adults & 2 children (9&12) enjoyed the quirky museum. Lots of interactive displays and fun facts to read about and learn. We managed to snag cheaper tickets via an external system & it was well worth the 1.5-2 hours we spent exploring the place. Plenty of things to see and do for the whole family. It shall evoke different reactions from different age groups. Another thing off our bucket list ticked.

Interesting experience
Apr. 2021
My family of 2 adults and 2 children (14 and 12) really enjoyed our time at Ripley's Believe it or not! We got the pass that included the 7D show - which was well worth it. There were plenty of rooms to visit in the museum, with many interactive exhibits. We got the Ripley's book for an additional $3 which kept both kids entertained on the car ride back to our hotel. Definitely recomment.
