After years of coming to the city and always walking past this place, I finally went in because the other couple that we were traveling with wanted to go. We did...and I had fun. I'm glad that did.

This place is weird but fun. Enjoyed the mirrors, the bridge with moving wall, and shadows. We got a san fran explorer pass and used it for this attraction. Quite enjoyed and took about an hour for a good look through. Different to a museum...More

Not bad for Ripleys we didn’t do the laser force or the mirror maze but was still quite interesting but not blown away. We came in the evening on our walk back to our accomodation at Ghiradelli.

If you have a Go Pass or any other group attraction pass, do not miss this as it is good for an hour and within the Fisherman's Wharf area. You'll have to do a lot of reading to get context on the displays though, but...More

Glad it was included on our 3 day Go San Fran card, as normally it would have been expensive for what it was. But still interesting and fun. Good place for the kids on a rainy day.

This didn't blow me away but I also didn't hate it. It's interesting and kind of neat but I wouldn't go rushing back.

Museum of gory knick-knacks interspersed with some historical information and modern artwork. Has a Mirror maze which was a lot of fun, and a laser zone that was okay, but could only be entered singly. Went in because one child had read a Ripley's book.

Definitely look into getting the San Francisco go pass on Groupon. There are so many things you can do with this pass you don't feel bad going to the silly little places and seeing all these strange oddities. Definitely plan on staying at least an...More

Neat place to visit. $20 per person which gets you 45-60 minutes of entertainment. Been to at least one other location and it's equally as entertaining.
