"Ripleys"
May, 2018
First of all , super convenient to purchase tickets o Reserve - thanks!! We decided at the last minute to check out Ripleys - and I was a hero for instant tickets. The place is interesting, curious. Ok for the price - lots of “replicas of”. Decent for the price. The building seems very old and smelled funny, but the staff members we came into contact with were great- friendly and helpful. It was estimated to take 45 min, depending on how busy they are and how quickly you move through the rooms.

Tip: Parking on the street tough- if you don’t get something close , you may have to walk a bit. Bring a debit/credit card for the meter( or change of course)

This was a nice attraction to do on a rainy day. It had a lot of different exhibits but may be too scary for small children.

I have not been here since i was a teen, and it seems too have added more cool things.! I would say i wished it was alittle longer, but it still amazes me. This time around, i had my babies with me and they really enjoyed themselves. One is 4 and the other is 2. i can never get enough of this place!!!!

We had about an hour to kill and this was definitely enjoyable. It was fun going room to room and looking at all the oddities. We went with teenagers and they liked it. There is something to catch everyone's interest.

I love these museums. They are all the same in every tourist town with the same material and a high cost. If you read a couple of the Ripley books from your local library before you walk through, you will better appreciate the exhibits. This is not for everyone.

There was several interesting things. I liked the one about the shrunken head. I've been to Ripley's Museum before some of the same things were here somewhere different so if you're into history and reading things definitely come here.
