  • Some of the stuff in here is quite interesting but I also can't believe that the original "toe tag" for Lee Harvey Oswald from when he was in the morgue is actually in a Ripley's display in San Antoni...  more »
  • We recently went to the Ripleys believe it or not museum while on vacation in San Antonio. We had been there about 15 years ago. It really didn’t seem to change very much since then. If you have never...  more »
  • Something interesting at every turn. If you spend the time to read the details on each exhibit you will really get a feel for everything the this man did to search the world for these oddities!!!!  more »

  • Kind of a tourist trap, but hey, at least it's interesting! I just went to the gift shop and I thought their jewelry was actually pretty cool. Much of the stuff ( like plushies and toys) was overpriced but that's kind of to be expected. Pretty well stocked and clean, plus the staff were helpful and chill. Good place for kids like 9 yrs and up.
  • I grew up watching the TV show. The visit was a trip down memory lane for me. The exhibit is nicely laid out. There are plaques next to the exhibit to explain what you are seeing. Some of the exhibits can be scary for young children.
  • Such a cool experience!!! My family and I loved it here! The staff were able to assist my whole family (bus load) LOL And everyone enjoyed this place. They have some creepy stuff that frightened the kids but the adults and teens really enjoyed it!
  • Awesome! The only reason I won't 5 star it is because of how confusing it was laid out, I do not recommend coming here too often either, the it wouldn't be fun. But this place is very family friendly (unless you have a family of 12 who all split up) The tunnel on level 3 kept me busy for at least 30 minutes. The elevated walkways and exotic artifacts added to the experience. So cool!
  • Had an amazing time last time I went. All the interactive exhibits were fun and spent hours looking at their collection. Great way to spend the rest of the day after walking the Riverwalk or visiting the Alamo. Definitely will be visiting in the future.
