After walking past this museum many times we decided to go take a look. We purchased discounted tickets to this attraction online. I attended with 2 kids aged 9 and 4. I wouldn't recommend bringing anyone under 5. My 4 year old found a lot of the displays to be scary. I on the other hand enjoyed waking around, reading the stories and seeing a lot of interesting displays. My 9 year old also enjoyed the experience. There are interactive activities throughout. It took just over a hour to see it all. I don't think it's great value if paying full price but I was happy with the discounted price I paid. The chamber of tourture and the worlds tallest man display were the highlights. Centrally located in Cavill avenue.

Our children (aged 8 & 10) had a really enjoyable afternoon at Ripley’s during the Easter holidays. There are so many interactive activities to keep kids entertained; the kids were really amazed with the optical illusion activities found throughout the Centre. The laser race was their favourite activity and because there were no crowds, the kids were able to keep trying to beat their PB over-and-over again. I found a lot of the artifacts interesting too!

The kids enjoyed Ripleys particularly the laser and dancing rooms. The scream box scared the bejesus out of my mother which was worth the entry price alone. There is a lot of educational and interactive things to see and do and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Take your time as there’s lots to look at believe it or not!
