  • When most people hear the word "museum", they usually think......BORING!.......Well not this place! Ripley's Believe It or Not Odditorium is jam packed with 3 floors of self-guided wonders. Each room ...  read more »
  • Not crazy about the experience. There were some neat things and we had fun but I would not do it again. It was not expensive thank goodness. 
  • This was a fun stop. We got a discount package for Ripley's Believe It or Not attractions. We knew we were going to the Aquarium and to Davy Crockets Mini Golf, but we could choose one more attraction...  read more »
  • I bought tickets to the Ripleys Aquarium online and it offered a package which included tickets to the Ripleys Odditorium. It is a 3 story museum with some fun things to see but it's probably a little too dark for younger children. My 5 year old daughter did not do well with certain parts that had more of a haunted house type feel to them. It took us about 30-40 mins to see everything. Not as entertaining as the Guiness World Records Museum in my opinion.
  • Fun. I thought it was fair priced if you consider it's kind of a tourist town so. I don't recall if the Orlando one was any cheaper really. Cool stuff to look at though.
  • It was a great overall experience! I loved all of the history that was in there. I agree with the other reviews that it could use some cleaning. I did feel dirty the whole time I was in there. It might do them well to Lysol some of the places that people usually touch. I don't like my hands turning darker. I think the admission could be more cost-effective. I think $8 per ticket would be more convenient. However I get it. Their rent must be astronomical because it's a tourist town. But keep below $15.
  • Great attraction that was even better than I remembered it as a kid! Plenty of things to see and read and tons of interactive bits. I suggest getting there when it opens to avoid lines and to be able to take in all the sites!
  • This was awesome. Only thing is has a lot of stairs so my husband and I were carryon the stroller a lot . Has A LOT of interactive things for kids too. But also interesting reads and bunch of cool stuff for adults. Beware of high priced arcade at end if u have kids. Mine cried bc we wouldn't play there (had arcade planned for later)
