It's your typical tourist attraction. Great to do when it's raining outside and you can't enjoy the beach or the boardwalk.

What a fun museum! There are so many interesting items and stories inside, I was really glad that we went. Some of the items don't really look that odd at first, but then you read the plaque next to it and realize that the bowl you were looking at is really a skull. So I would really recommend reading the... More

Have been here a number of times over the years. They haven't added any new things. Still neat to take the grand children to, however, after one time, really isn't worth the money.

This was a very fun unusual event. My wife, son and myself had a blast here though. The price wasn't too bad, and you get to see some really interesting things.

So much fun! The whole family enjoyed the museum. The rotating tunnel was a favorite! The tricks and craziness added to the fun.

Sharon, Glad you and your family enjoyed your visit. I've been working at different Ripley's attractions for years and the rotating tunnel still throws me for a loop sometimes. Thanks for stopping in! More

We visited October of 2015. Real neat exhibits. Not as breathtaking as I hoped but for the average folk I'm sure it's amazing. We enjoyed ourselves just wish there was a bit more wow moments.

Second time at the museum and I think they did a few updates. Some odd things, but a lot of history as well. Some inappropriate facts you may have to explain to young children or walk by faster.
