About a half hour is all you need to see this attraction. You could stretch it out to an hour if you stop for everything or have small children.
Some entertaining things in here, just not enough of them, especially for the price.
Do NOT take them up on pairing it with the lamest wax museum in existence. You can also pair it up with a maze, which I didn’t try.

It was raining and we needed to kill some time. We found it very expensive for the little time we spent there.

Our kids spent more time playing in the free maze beside the parking lot than the expensive museum.

Too many large toothpick, cutlery and clothespin exhibits. Not really worth the money it cost for admission. It had some interesting exhibits but wouldn’t go back.

Terrible customer service, poor attraction value, mediocre interest. Staff was very rude, not interested in answering questions. Interactive exhibits were all turned off for covid, but the price was the same. Lame.

We have been here before, but it has been a couple of years. The displays stay the same and they don’t really change anything, but it was fine for us, as it’s nice to see the displays again.

We enjoy the 2way mirror, the Robert Wadlow display and the artifacts from other parts of the world. This was the first year the kids were somewhat interested. A good attraction for the evening or on a rainy day. It takes about 20-30 minutes to go through it if your looking at everything.

Passes were included with our cottage rental, we enjoyed it and it kept the kids entertained for an hour. Not a half day activity.

Went to Ripley's Believe it or not today (August 5th 2020) and personally my family found it to be disappointing.

I am not sure if it is due to COVID-19 or something else, but the exhibits seemed to be lacking and some of the interactive pieces were gone.

For 2 Adults it was over $32 and we finished the museum in less then 10 mintues with a young child (under 1) in tow.

We found it to be a waste of money this year and won't be going back.

If we could have gotten a refund, we would have.

Disappointing and lacking.

The Family Water park next door would be much more worth your money.

Made a weekend trip to Prince Edward Island with the family. After the visit, realized there was much more to see on this small province of ours and will be back!

Riley’s, mini golf and the wax museum were a real hit! Also went to Anne of Green Gables.

Fun rainy day attraction, neat assortment of weird and bizarre exhibits. But it is small, dont plan on more than 30 minutes here at max. There was one scary moment when my wife tried to touch the fertility statue so gentlemen be aware!

Thank you for your review! The Fertility Statues have continued on their world tour, so they are no longer in Cavendish, no need for alarm! There is a lot of exhibits packed in, so if you take your time to read and interact with all the exhibits, your visit will be much longer than 30 minutes. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your visit!
