  • Much more interesting than I thought. Different cultures appeared, and it was much bigger than what you might think. The Museum seen from the fifth floor down, and includes everything from creepy deformities and cultural phenomena, mikrostatyer and spegellabyrint. Thought it was expensive when we went inside, but changed his mind during the visit.

  • This five floors of well-organised museum is located at the heart of Piccadilly circus. It is the biggest of more than 30 Ripley's in the world. So this museum gets really busy. Make sure you start at...  more »
  • Believe it or not... should tell you what you need to know as this place is a little crazy and everywhere you turn you see oddities that do make you question whether it is real or just some crazy idea...  more »

  • A great place to visit for families. Five floors filled with interesting things so there is something for everyone. Especially liked the Titanic water tank, giving you the chance to feel how cold the water was on the night the Titanic sank.
  • Really interesting Museum, where you can see many weird and wonderful things and unusual people and see and read about strange wonders of the world. Family friendly and open from 10:00am to midnight all year. Book online two weeks in advance for big Ticket Price reductions.
  • We went here a couple years ago during the late hours of London after a play. We really enjoyed this multi-level facility. Many interesting facts. I believe there was some sort of spinning tunnel that gave me really bad vertigo and could not hardly stand up. Was pretty cool. Many other facts and sites to see in this place. Could have spent hours, but just spent about 1.5 hrs. If you're in a rush and have to see something quick- you could likely get through in an hour.
  • Great place for young and older kids.. i enjoyed it too. We got a big discount on ticket prices via Groupon, as pretty pricy on the door tickets. Weird and wonderful exhibits.. Loads to see and do.. mirror maze (hall of mirrors) takes me back to my childhood. Great staff and bigger than it seems from the outside. If you've got a couple of hours spare, go here. I recommend you buy the book/annual from the shop (your ticket will get you a discount in the shop) its full of amazing oddities and my daughter wont put it down. It's good to see her off the laptop and to have a book in her hand.
  • You can easily spend 5 hours here and read only half of the interesting facts and miss many of the curiosities. I'm sure you will be surprised that it's such a huge place and will want to come back just as we did. A great place for a date or a fun family weekend.
