Ripley’s has a surprisingly wide and varied range of oddities. Staff were friendly, the interactive exhibits were great for kids and the laser maze challenge was a fun surprise. Highly recommend for anyone that wants to see some weird and wonderful things

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .
