  • Our Granddaughter stopped us walking by and so we went in. Saw Wax Museum. did not go to the attached "Believe it or not." They offered that as an extra, we turned down. They give a discount if you ha...  more »

  • Lot of unique stuff and fun facts. There's something for everyone. Take the time and walk through and read through all the fun facts.. Some are unbelievable and entertaining. Compare to some of the other Ripley's, this one is a bit smaller with less stuff but nonetheless still good. This is a nice spot next to the Alamo so you can easily spend a day here
  • My husband and I were considering going here while on vacation last week. However, due to their aggressive saleswoman's actions, we decided not to go and will never attend this location in the future. We had just gone to see the Alamo & decided to ask the man at the counter at Ripley's how much it cost to go inside. He was nice & polite as he explained the packages & pricing. My husband & I decided not to go in right then, that we might go back before our trip was over, then thanked the man and left. A very pushy saleswoman chased us up the block, grabbed me by the arm, and asked why didn't we go in? It completely freaked me out, I don't like pushy people up in my face, she totally disregarded my personal space and I truly DID NOT appreciate it!! My husband had to tell her TWICE that we were not interested in going in at this time, then just walked away, in order for her to leave us alone. I have anxiety issues and I was very distressed that somebody would come and grab me by the arm like that. Not happy at all. *IF* we ever decide to go, we will not be going back to that location, and I will not recommend it to anyone either.
  • This is a very fun place to visit for an evening. There is so much to look at and read. I remember going here as a kid and have probably visited 7+ times!!! It's a tad expensive but, check Groupon or Google for coupons to lessen the cost. There are things here for all of the family to see and enjoy. It is a place you must visit when you go to San Antonio.
  • I have been several times in the past. It is pretty cool. exhibits rarely change. It is NOT worth all that money they charge daily though. I would go more if it was cheaper.
  • Very interesting and a ton of fun for a nice little side trip. They did a great job on detail and very friendly staff. The place did not have a smell and it was nice and cool. Lot to see and lots to read.
