A neat attraction.

The first Ripley's Believe It or Not. I was surprised of the number of items that have been secured over the last 75 years.

We had a good time here. Everything was very clean. Thanks to the staff that was constantly around pushing guests out of the way so that they could wipe things down. Lot of cool exhibits.

This was the munchkin's choice for attraction on our family trip but of course we all had fun. There is something to look at in every nook and cranny and you come out learning all sorts of interesting trivia. It was a great time!

I have been to the one In Key West and now this one. In MY OWN opinion this is a waste of money.1/2 of it I've seen on tv 1/4 of it I've seen in Key West, the rest are more pictures that I find a waste of time. Don't get me wrong there is some cool stuff but it's... More

We've been to Ripley's Believe It Or Not in several cities and honestly the exhibits are the same no matter the location. This particular location is in a historic old castle and the grounds are nicely maintained. I would recommend if this is your first visit to a Ripley's but otherwise save your money.

This was not on my "Bucket List," but my friend wanted to go and take her two great grandchildren. There were some interesting things and some creepy things. Some items were not what I was expecting; but then, I'm not sure what I was expecting. The kids seemed to really enjoy it. I guess there is something of interest for... More

First time in and it was fun to see all the facts and weird things to do. The end was the best, can't spoil it! Worth the visit if you've never gone. Can see why returning wouldn't be worth the value. Took about an hour to walk and enjoy the whole museum.

Tickets were easy to purchase, parking is free on the grounds. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable There were a few interesting things for us to see. However, somewhat redundant. I would view their website first to see if this side trip is worth the extra money. Kids may enjoy a few of the displays, but would get bored easily. Older... More
