  • Ripley's Museum of oddities etc is fantastic....lots to enthrall young and old alike...they have gone all out to make it entertaining.... 
  • If as a kid you either saw the TV show or read the Ripley's pages in comics or other publications this is worth going to. It is historical , comical ,sad , interesting and tacky all at the same time! 
  • Great once again! Had been 8 years and will definitely go back again. So interesting and I came in 6th place on the laser challenge coarse haha loved it.
  • Place is pretty cool really. If around the area defo check it out. Has some pretty cool and interesting things inside and you can choose whether or not to believe it as the name says. Walk around at your own pace, there is alot of stuff to see and without giving too much away there are a few things inside that 1 will make you laugh and keep you amused for a while watching other people, and the other is bringing out the mission impossible side of you! Check it out!
  • Well... Actually pretty good and interesting. I seems dull outside, but the inside is very good. And you learn a lot.
  • It's an interesting experience...lots of fun facts and things to look at. The Lazer mission was an awesome idea.. I would do at least once more kids got a bit bored though
  • Lots of weird and interesting stuff in here, but lots of reading to be done if you actually want to understand what any of it is. Unfortunately it was a little less interactive than I remember it being as a kid, lots of stuff in glass cabinets.
