Overview
More
Experience three unique attractions including the authentically unbelievable Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium, the exciting movies that you ride at Ripley's 4D Moving Theater and our larger-than-life Louis Tussaud's WaxWorks. Since 1918, our Believe It or Not Odditoriums have showcased the eclectically bizarre collection of Robert Ripley. We have carried on Ripley's tradition of scouring the globe for the world's most unbelievable exhibits. Authentic shrunken heads, two-headed animals and, a 19th century vampire killing kit only scratches the surface of what's behind the doors of Ripley's San Antonio.

My two older teens and I loved everything about the museum! Well organized, lots of great details and incredible exhibits! Did not expect the quality. Even though it was crowded, we could access and enjoy everything!

It is just a tourist trap place to have some fun watching the kids you take. Once you see one of these you know what you will get. There is funny, gross, and some scary things here, but nothing too bad.

Much larger than it looks on the outside. Absolutely filled to be brim with interesting items. And conveniently located on the riverwalk.

We had an awesome time. The tickets featuring 3 attractions was a plus for our family. ( consisting of 2 small children, a teen, and a young adult) “More bang for your buck “-I’ll say! It was a perfect addition to our short stay!❤️❤️❤️
