I've been to this location, and others, many times. Favorite being in St. Augustine. It's still good, not great. More a museum of oddities, not at all interactive. If you've never been to one of their locations, it's worth a visit. However, the Wondertorium up...More

We have been to other ripleys in different states. We have enjoyed them very much but this one was smaller not as much stuff in it and over priced .

Thanks for visiting. Hopefully you were able to discover the 3rd floor and explore the temple of discovery and find all of the symbols. We hope you enjoyed your time in the Dells.

Cool artifacts and facts. Interactive artifacts and activities. Very informative. Partially handicapped assessable, it would have been better if it all would have been. Hidden things to get you involved.

I know there are many of these Ripley's museums around the country, and i think that's part of why I don't enjoy it. Many of the exhibits and relics are just replicas of the originals. I hate to use the word "fake" because I know...More

This was a fun activity. Learned a lot and some very interesting displays. It was a rainy day and gave us a very good indoor activity! Worth going through!

it is a self-guided tour, so it is up to you! We have had guests go through in 20 minutes (not recommended) and others stay up to 2 hours. :)
