Honestly jury is still out on how we feel about our visit - just a bit weird for us but interesting.

What can I say about Ripley’s that hasn’t been said? Lots of unique items from shrunken heads to six legged calves. Interesting historical facts. It is just what you would expect from Ripley’s.

Very poor compared to the ones located in London and Amsterdam. Very very overpriced for what you get. Not worth it even for kids.

Visited with 3 teenagers who can be hard to please - we felt their disappointment was warranted given the limited amount of displays many of which seemed tired. Given the prime location that surprised us. Wouldn’t return or recommend this experience.

We were both in awe, curious and shocked at the many unique exhibits in this museum. It was a huge hit with my family and we would highly recommend this experience. Note: Some content (torture room) is not age appropriate for some but overall, the...More

You could not tell when you bought the tickets but there is a very long line once you enter because everyone has to get in one elevator. There is no one telling you anything about why you are waiting or how long it will be....More
