Our kids loved this place. It was full of weird and interesting artifacts that Mr. Ripley collected. There were strange spinning rooms, shrunken heads, and lots of other amazing things.

Love all the Ripley's we go to. This one was fun with interactive exhibits and stayed open in the evening. We were here right before we were evacuated. Can't wait to come back.

Visited this attraction while on vacation. It was nice but not at all what I was expecting. The mansion it was housed in was more interesting that some of the displays but it was a nice afternoon

Ripely's is a fun place to visit if you have not been there before. They have a wide selection of displays from the Ridley Believe It or Not history. They offer a Ghost Train Tour which highlights the haunted history of the city.

Beautiful old mansion that has been preserved as the museum. Lots of weird displays and some very nice collectibles that Ripley purchased on his many overseas trips. Especially Chinese artifacts. It was an easy walk even though there are stairs to the top floors, I...More

Have been before; thought it would be good to do during a short rain, don't. Waste of money. Find a pub or wine shop instead.More

Nothing spectacular. It amazed me at how people would even think any of this stuff was real or possible. There were a few "artifacts" but even those could be seen at most museums and gift shops. Almost everything else were facts or too stupid to...More

About an hour, maybe more if you like to read the history behind all of the exhibits, but an hour is a good average. Thank you!
