Ripley's Believe it or Not! Baltimore is located in the heart of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Come see over 13,000 square feet of the odd and weird world of Ripley's, where truth is stranger then fiction. Experience over 500 exhibits from all over the world, over 100 interactives, our 4D Moving Theater, and the Marvelous Mirror Maze. Ripley's has been proudly freaking out families for over 90 years. Why just say it? See it!

Lots to do and see! The kids had a blast. Many interactive things, along with a maze and 4D movie. Price is a bit high, bit there is a lot to do for the price.

If you haven't been to one of these attractions in another city, it is a must see for the entire family. A medium length walk, about a 2 hour visit for my wife and I and two girls. You will learn a thing or two and be amazed quite often. Stop and read everything there is to read so you... More

Our party consisted of 2 adults, 12 and 14-year-old boys and an 11 year old girl. The museum used to be adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards but is now located in the Harborplace Light Street Pavilion. We parked in the Bank of America garage - very convenient and a bit less expensive than other close by garages. The... More

This place is chock full of the interesting, fascinating, unusual, weird, gross and bizarre. I haven't been to a Ripleys in years. This time I went alone as an adult, and had a new appreciation for Ripley's collections. Kids will most likely not want to spend time reading the descriptions, but will just look and move on. If you REALLY... More

Great place to visit on vacation with the kids. A bit expensive but still very fun. The little ones were a bit afraid of the 4D movie theatre but the older ones enjoyed it.
