My kids wanted to see this due to the interesting building. I paid $127 for all 5 of us with the coupon. I came out feeling like this was a bit overpriced for what you get. My kids did enjoy the venue.

We went here as an add-on ticket for the aquarium. Interesting thing to walk through with some cool interactive exhibits, but definitely not worth the full admission price. Took roughly an hour to walk through. Recommend only if in addition to aquarium

For $25 per person, I expected much more than 75 minutes of mildly interesting facts and a few real “believe it or not” pieces. I thought it would be full of the type of exhibits seen in lobby area. It’s well done after the refurbishment...More

The art and collectibles here were fascinating. There's lots of unique items and genuine artifacts from different areas and cultures and times. It was all very neat, especially the different types of art. A good stop on the strip.

Family fun while in the mountains. Kids had a great time with all the interactive activities. If you are going to be in the smokies for a couple days buy a package deal so you can do multiple Ripley activities
