  • The Ripleys experience was pretty cool, I enjoyed it! I took my 13 year old daughter and she loved it just as much. It's actually much bigger than I imagined, we were there around 10pm so there wasn't...  more »

  • This was my first time visiting Ripley's. I purchased the 6 combo ticket. For the price I was pleased. I really enjoyed this museum . They had a lot of interesting things to see and do here. My teens enjoyed it as well. I would recommend visiting the establishment at least once if in the area.
  • I absolutely love this place. There is a lot to do and a lot of it is interactive. I personally have not done every single thing they offer because of how much there is. But I did go through the main attraction and once you go through all that, it then leads you back down to the gift shop. The gift shop is also separate so if you do not feel like going through the actual attraction, which you really should do, then you can visit the gift shop independently. It is off to the left of the building and downstairs headed towards the riverwalk. The items there have there are very interesting. I always get a shot glass on my trips and they had so many I wanted them all!
  • Ripley's is definitely a place you want to consider when going downtown for day of tourist attractions. I recommend the twofer (wax museum and ripley's). Perhaps not an attraction that you will frequent, but very interesting crazy and cool. Be prepared to read and learn, 2-3 hours well spent.
  • If your going to San Antonio, Texas Ripley's is a must see. Located across the Alamo in historical down town area. Money well spent and great for families. You can buy tickets for Ripley's only or both the wax museum. I recommend buying both. Wear some walking shoes and comfortable clothing. Go early and be prepared to read and read some more. Both tours should take from 2 to 3 hours so eat, drink and go to bathroom beforehand. Good luck and enjoy .
  • Our family (kids 14 and 10) loves Ripley's! It's chalk full of all kinds of weird, crazy, amazing, fascinating, mind blowing stuff! I wish, however, that there were more hand sanitizing stations. I only saw one throughout the whole thing and there are many things to touch along the way. If I go again, I hope I'll remember to pack along some hand sanitizer in my purse.
