Ripley's Believe it or Not!, Cavendish

Founded in 1918 by cartoonist and adventurer Robert Ripley. Dubbed by many "The Modern Marco Polo", Ripley became America's most popular celebrity of his time. The collection of odd, unique and incredible artifacts, art, photographs, and stories of the 200+ countries he visited are the foundation of today's Ripley's Believe It or Not! brand.

  • My family and I go every year and it's always fantastic. They add new things to keep it interesting and it is really amazing some of the things in there. Highly recommend!  more »
  • This was our first visit to a Ripleys museum. While they did have some cool stuff, we were hoping for a little more.. In content as well as interactiveness.  more »
  • Have visited Cavendish about 6 times in the last 5 years and never had any interest in visiting Ripleys but on this trip we traveled with extended family who have a 9 year old who HAD to see Ripleys. ...  more »

  • A great way to kill a rainy day when in Cavendish. The price is much better if you bundle the wax museum and mini-golf. You can put about 10 years between visits however... I was here in 2007-2008 and returning this year, I would say about 25% of the exhibits were new.
  • I Live Not To Far Away From Cavendish And I Think This Is One Of The Funnest Places I Have Ever Been To.
  • Too expensive and not for younger kids. But, my older son(12) enjoyed many of the exhibits and still talks about them. Not the worst way to spend an hour on a rainy day.
  • I had always wanted to go to a Ripley's museum but had never gotten the opportunity. I happened to be driving by here & spotted it. It was fascinating. I spent a good 2 hours in here. Learned a lot of cool things too.
  • I really enjoyed it ! My kids ADORED it ! Great for their ages... might be a little bit scarybin some parts for younger children...but the staff did mention that ahead of time :) my kids are 10 , 12 and 16 and they just loved it and didnt want to leave ! Being a mom on a tighter budget , I did find the prices to be fair enough.. and they do offer packages for mutliple attractions ( such as wax museum and mini-putt ) . The kids got to make a wax hand with choice of some colours while I enjoyed chatting with the friendly staff :) thanks for the nice time and 10 thumbs up to the 3 wonderful ladies working during our visit :)
