  • We enjoyed looking at and reading all the interesting things at Ripley's. It is a fun activity for adults, teens and kids.  more »
  • this was a fun place to check out at the board walk. Although it's not big, its still fun to roam and take cool pics inside. if you have kids, they will love it. Recommended!  more »
  • I had been to another one a while ago and this one was not much different. I guess it was a nice break in our day and the a/c was roaring.  more »

  • We took our 2 boys, age 6 and 4. Way too much more and scary stuff for them. My 4 year old cried and wanted to leave. I've been to these in other cities, before kids, and must not have remembered how gory it is? Pics of people beheaded, impaled, knives from executions, etc. I expected the shrunken heads. But it was room after room of death and medieval torture devices. I wish I had been warned about it not being appropriate for children. I expected tallest man, hot dog wafting contest pics and stuff like that. They had a model of the tallest man but lots of dark-themed stuff. Great if you're unto that and not 4 years old.
  • Honestly its was VERY over priced. Its good for kids, but its not worth the $50 we paid for only 2. Museum is not even an hour worth walk. P. S. Visited all the way from Mississippi on vacation. 7-5-17 Boardwalk and everything else was awesome though.
  • The two employees that was working that Sunday that we went were amazing, they treated and helped my daughter out. Their personality is contagious. I just had a blast talking to them, while my daughter was in the maze.
  • Very interesting! I have been going to these since I was a kid and there is always something different in each. They are really fun to go to
  • Some of the stereotypical ripleys attractions and some unique ingress add well I loved all of the art made out of cool interesting things like hair, pennies duct tape, bugs etc.

Where to stay in Ocean City

Ocean City is one of the country's major vacation resorts, so it's no surprise that room rates fluctuate with the season. Summer commands the highest prices, and most hotels require minimum stays of two or three nights. Make your reservations well in advance if you wish to stay anywhere near the water, especially if you want a room with an ocean view. You can avoid the crowds by renting a waterfront townhouse, but be prepared to pay a bundle even in the off-season.
