You need a couple of hours here to really have enough time to read and take photos and enjoy ALL the stuff here. There is some interactive displays which are fun. Some of the exhibits are yucky, but hey??believe it or not!!!

The refurbishment of the place has added great character. The place is wonderful and you feel excited to enter due to the atmosphere at the front door from the music and statue band playing. This place will never get old; I visited Ripley’s around 10...More
