It was fun. Something to do if its raining outside. It had interesting things, that's for sure. I don't know if its worth the full money paid. Its more of "side show" things instead of real "wow" things. But interesting, still.

It was a fun break for the kids from the more serious history tours we had been taking! They loved the vortex and ran up and down as much as they wanted as it wasn't packed. There was enough to do and see we never...More

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.

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!
