Don't know what I expected but this was kinda ho hum. A few interesting exhibits but the highlight for me was the walk way in the revolving circle.

My kids wanted to see the wax museum next door and we found we could bundle the ticket with Ripley's for just a few pesos more. There were a fair number of the expected kinds of exhibits (shrunken heads, two headed bird, conjoined calves, etc.) but nothing jaw dropping. We had the most fun with a bridge through a spinning...

My wife and I visited this museum on June 9, 2016. Meh. The museum is located next to the CDMX Wax Museum, and we bought combined tickets. We enjoyed the wax museum, this one, not so much. It was just average. On the other hand, we have visited the Ripley's Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, and that's cool.

This was a fun museum for curious people and oddities. We enjoyed everything from a reconstruction of the Mona Lisa from toast, a chunk of the Berlin Wall, a fun house tunnel, and so much more. It was slightly over priced comparatively based on other museums in the area, but a lot of fun. Overall a great place to learn... More

This place is fun, the building itself is amazing ressembling a castle. Almost at the end there is a spinning tunnel that is super fun too. If your time in the city is limited you can totally skip this place, but if you have to spare some time definitely go inside. The wax museum next door is a way much... More

Brilliant museum! Was a nice contrast from the heavily cultural Anthropology museum. All the signs are in Spanish though so if you can´t read Spanish try to take someone with you who can translate.

Well the museum it the same as all ripley's museums it has a bunch of weird and amazing stuff but it's al little outdated. I recommend you to buy the ticket for the wax museum instead.
