My girlfriend and I visited Ripley's, because she had been here a few years back and really enjoyed it. She mentioned that they had added some new exhibits since then, but also kept their main attractions. She liked that she could visit her favorites again,...More

I feel it was a bit over priced but had a lot of interesting articles and facts. A few new things to look at. Information in the bathrooms too!

We have been to a couple of other Ripley's (the San Francisco, CA one is awesome) so we were a bit underwhelmed with this one. Their "Temple of Doom" area is kind of fun.

Nice place to spend your time indoors, especially when you can't be outdoor. Little creepy for kids, but a great collection of artifacts. Not recommended for toddlers
