We had a great time getting lost in the Mirror Maze, and enjoyed the theater and museum as well. We spent about 2 hours walking through the whole place, and the staff even allowed us to stay 20 minutes past closing time so we could finish the experience. If we had that much fun, I'm sure kids of all ages... More

Used the "FREE" CharmCity busses to see the Fort McHenry and the Famous Lexington Market. Also visited the Light Street Market and Johns Hopkins Hospital. Wonderful

Had an awesome time here with my wife. We spent about an hour and really enjoyed it. I only got the odditorium which is the main museum, but I regret not getting the mirror maze which looks like it would have been fun. All in all, you will not regret coming here, especially in a cold day where there is... More

This was a great way to spend a couple of hours in the winter - weird, bizarre and fun exhibits! Had a great time with the add on mirror maze - look for coupons or Groupon though because could be pricey without one!!

If you've ever been in one of these, then you know what you are in for...lots of displays, pictures, artifacts. Still, it is still drawing in the crowds. And this location has a lot of unique things I haven't seen at other locations, like Ocean City. If I were visiting, I would go to the visitor center and get a... More

Nothing you can't do on-line really. Basically looking a replicas and reading bizarre things. Gets boring mid-way. Left feeling was that it?

They have special pricing for evenings and other times. The attraction consists of an array of random objects from around the world that represent exotic cultures and creative art. Highlights were a Dillinger pistol carried by JW Booth the night he killed Lincoln and an entire room of famous buildings built out of matchsticks. There are quite a few interactive... More

I've been to at least 3 other Ripley's attractions and they are all different. This one told me about Baltimore's own monster which I never hear of before. It's good to hear local legends.
