I just wasn't intrigued... I would've much rather YouTube'd some old episodes from my hotel room. I think this is more appropriate for the preteen and teens. I was in the city for the evening and was just looking for something to do...I should've found something else. As tacky as this sounds--I want my money back lol

The Hogwart's castle made entirely out of matchsticks is my daughters favorite! I love the pictures made out of odd things, like the ones made from junk... More

Very interesting. Much larger on the inside and so much to see. My kids wanted to stay in Ripley's for hours.

My kids (14 & 11) enjoyed the Odditorium. The displays are for the most part sensationalistic, some of which are pretty interesting, others not so much. Price is a bit steep, and the facility tries to get you pay for extras which I would avoid in the future.

For 2 adults and 1 child to do all 3 attractions was $70. So not worth it to me. Maybe if you could do the attractions more then once but the ticket is for one time use only. I was worried it would be to scary for my 4 year old but they didn't have any of the gruesome displays.... More

Friendly staff that want to make sure you are enjoying yourself and don't have any questions/concerns. Depending on the age of your party the 4-D movie may or may not be a good choice. My 16 year old thought it was ridiculous and we could have easily skipped that option! $$

Main part was ok, but you won't spend more than an hour there. Some things were interesting, and the set-up was decent. After 30 minutes, it's just too much reading, and a few things aren't as interesting, so the appeal wears off. The mirror maze was a lot of fun. The 4d theater was fun, but nothing too exciting. Doesn't... More

Well worth doing! We didn't do the mirror maze but it looked fun. The walk thru and see, touch and interact was great. Things people have done or lived thru is amazing and Ripley captured a lot of it. Highly recommend.

Visiting my friend in the Baltimore area – and having a 12-year-old who owns three Ripley's books - this was a must-do activity! We had a Groupon deal that got us in to the museum and all three attractions for around $50. That's a win-win, folks! (Tip: save your cash to make a cool waxed-hand creation near the mirror maze and... More
