  • Yes, OK. Not bad, a bit disappointing, but interesting and a fun place to spend time while the women shop. Sure beats shopping! The Vortex at the end was pretty good. Had my 4 and 8 year old grandsons...  more »
  • Very expensive! Where's the beef? Or at least the sizzle? Would not recommend unless youre bored stiff with everything else in Williamsburg!  more »
  • Watch the 15 minute 4D movie first. They have the same kind of movies at theme parks. There are 350 exhibits in eleven themed galleries, mostly of things that Ripley collected throughout his life. Som...  more »

  • You have to go at least once. It's got some pretty unique things inside. Try the 4D theater, it's like a ride that doesn't move. Kids liked the Angry Birds movie.
  • Very interesting place. Fun to take the kids. We visited Williamsburg on Memorial Day week. We were the only one at Ripleys believe it or not the day we went to visit. The employee was OUTSTANDING. Very informative and extremely helpful.
  • Cool place. Friendly helpful staff. Reasonable prices.
  • Lots of interesting oddities and artifacts. Great exhibits even if you've seen other Ripley museums.
  • I would of given less if I could. The hrs online say midnight. When I arrived with my son at 1120pm the doors were locked and they said they dont let anyone in after 11pm and were quite short with us as well. Fyi the parking lot was empty! Who turns away business on a dead Saturday?? It was my son's birthday and we had been stuck in almost 7 hrs of traffic just to get to Williamsburg to celebrate from Maryland. And get this when I called I had to leave a voicemail because no 0ne wanted to answer during the business hours. Really?

Where to stay in Williamsburg

Williamsburg offers lodgings for every taste, including four-star resorts, quaint inns, and budget-friendly hotels. Accommodations in the city's historical district provide easy access to all of the area's major attractions, but they also charge much higher prices than equally comfortable guesthouses in some of the outlying neighborhoods. For a genuine Virginian experience, consider pitching a tent or renting a cottage in one of the area's popular campgrounds, which offer shuttle services to the city's major attractions and provide free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and fenced-in areas for pets.
