"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.

"It’s ok but can be disturbing to kids"

I went years ago as a teenager and they had a lot more exhibits than what is there now. It was ok, but parts freaked my young son out. Defiantly look for coupon codes for tickets. Thankfully we found on for 50% off so it was only $40 for the 5 of us. Honestly, it’s not worth more than that for a big family.

Located near the beach, the museum does not have free parking. It is typical of Ripley's museums across the country (this is the third I have visited). There are numerous factoids and exhibits of strange things throughout the facility. You can certainly kill a couple of hours viewing the oddities in this museum.

I've been to a Ripley's Believe it or Not on another vacation and apparently they are all the same. Regardless, we had a great time seeing all the crazy things this attraction has to offer.

"Thought it was interesting and not very expensive"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 07, 2017
Got in as seniors for 12.00 each so not an expensive adventure. We were looking for something to just fill in a little time. The tour took about an hour and found a lot of the information interesting. A lot of the information was photos and details, so you have to take a little time to read. Very few visitors so we got to take our time. We enjoy quirky and unusual things to do, so this was not bad.
