My bf and I went to ripleys to see all the weirdness, and it is packed from beginning to end. You walk in and see almost larger than life things, I mean come on BUMBLE BEE!! And the fun continues all the way through. They offer an amazing discount for military and veterans, and the staff was very accommodating when... More

We went on a rainy day thinking something fun and exciting in our own city. Kids (ages 9 and 11) were disappointed and we were done in less than 2 hours. We are glad we checked it out but we wouldn't go back. There were a few fun and interesting exhibits but overall was not worth the admission price.

If you go take your reading glasses. Took some 4th and 5th graders here for a field trip, The oddities were quite appealing to many of the kids but it felt like we were walking through the Guinness Book of World Records. Interesting but a lot of reading for kids to really understand what they are seeing,We had time to... More

Visited with my husband, our 13 and 15 year olds, and my sister in law. It was a great way to pass some time on a cold and windy day, and our 13 year old enjoyed it the most. The mirror maze was a lot of fun. We saved some money by purchasing tickets through Groupon, otherwise the price seemed... More

Fascinating exhibits, and also enjoyable activities. We did the 4d ride and also the mirror maze, which were both a lot of fun [though not that long]. He collected such strange and odd things that were really cool to look through. We were a group of all ages including children, and they all were having a good time.

We had never done a Ripley's believe it or not, we had some time, so we decided to do this. It was fun to do. We stopped at nearly ever exhibit thing and read about it. We did not do the 4d movie or the glass maze. The price is rather high, 19 a person, but it was a fun... More

It's unfortunate that our beautiful Inner Harbor has become filled with tourist traps such as Ripley's. There is nothing interesting, educational, or historic about this attraction. It sits in a "modern-historic" building that used to team with unique shops and restaurants. Quit bland, and sad really. Tourists - find the REAL Baltimore by visiting the neighborhoods.
