Lots of intriguing and fascination artifacts and displays, each with detailed but not overwhelming descriptions. Exhibits cover an extremely broad range of culture, history, science, and so much more. Some elements are minimally but nicely interactive, including a couple of simple games. Liked the black...More

Ripleys is a fun museum to visit with information that is both unusual (WOW inducing) fun and interesting that took a little over an hour to get through. The museum is located just off Times Square and well worth a visit.

The exhibit takes me back 50 years to the Ripley's in San Francisco; not much has changed. The displays are worn, some broken, and all in need of cleaning/freshening up. All in all, it was an hour of okay.

Cost way too much to get in. Walk thru in about an hour and most of the displays are old and run down.
