"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.

"Interesting"
June, 2016
I hadn't been to a Ripley's since I was a child so this was a nostalgic stop for me. The young man wasn't sure what to do with our e-tickets and had to go get a manager. She showed him how to ring it up and we were on our way. I had read the reviews that said there was a lot of reading throughout the exhibit but I felt it was balanced with the displays and a few hands on things. It might not appeal to everyone but we enjoyed it.

Once you've done one, you've done them all. It's nice to have an indoor option when it rains or it gets too hot.

We wished we would have tried a different Ripley's attraction - our kids were really too young (5&8) to enjoy the exhibits.

The museum was fun. My grandson and I especially enjoyed the interactive exhibits like making art using body movements and trying to burst virtual balloons.
