I've been to multiple locations of Ripley's. This one seemed a little short, compared to the others, and we weren't as impressed with most of the exhibits. It was still fun and we had a great time!

lots of strange things to look at, nice little facts and history pieces to read as you stroll through the museum. There's an area with hidden buttons that are fun to search for.

Our family ages 10-46 really liked the exhibits. The interactive Egyptian area was fun. History video was interesting on Ripley. Appreciated the mature content being on a separate floor with clear signage. Nice short descriptions to entertain us. Very fun

Pretty hokey and not very interesting but EXTREMELY expensive. The exhibits were hard to see and 32 dollars for two people.

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. :)
