Two stories filled with more than 500 exhibits, artifacts, and oddities from around the world. The only place in Ocean City where you'll find a shrunken head, a 12ft tall robot sculpture made from scrap car parts, one-of-a-kind artwork, the world's rarest egg, and two-headed animals!

Visited late on a weeknight with two adults and four children from ages 4-10. Wasn't very busy so we got to look at every exhibit. Everyone thought it was pretty cool.

I haven't been to the OC's Ripley's Believe It or Not since I was a kid. My kids have always been drawn to the building with a shark crashing through it since they were little. However, I remember from my childhood that there was a...More

Cool first experience a lot of history in that one building, not sure if all the exhibits are true or not but that is the saying "believe it or not!"

We took the kids to Ripley's for the first time and they were both freaked out and excited at the same time! They talked about it for days afterwards!

Was actually pretty cool! Brought some kiddos with, and they all liked it as much as the grown ups. Worth checking out on rainy days, when beach is no good.

I never was to the one at Inner Harbor so all I can tell you about is the one in Ocean City Maryland. The one in OC is great. My grandsons loved it. Kathy Young Hummels Wharf, PA
