It is I think one of the smaller Ripley's museums and doesn't have necessarily his best exhibits but it is still entertaining, especially for early teenagers. There is some stuff that might not be appropriate for younger kids.

A good place to beat the heat of summer and enjoy some interesting things you wouldn't believe. Not too expensive either.

The Ripley's museum is full of strange and unusual items. Some displays are creepy, so parents with young children should be aware. The main theme of the museum is lost civilizations, with the largest area containing an Egyptian themed display.

Total waste of money only a couple genuine artifacts. I know they could do better. I always enjoyed the TV show and was just plain disappointed.

good time if you never have had a visit to a ripleys. They seem to be in most touristy areas. Little ones , younger than grade school may not enjoy this.

Hi! This is good place to go to see weird and cool things! they have few new items for 2017 and mix it up little bit. I would say, 50/50 spending money and time.

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. :)
