This was a cute little (and I mean little) museum. It wasn't very big. They definitely need to bring in some new exhibits (they had the same ones since I was a little girl...and that was 20 years ago). It has some neat exhibits in there (world's largest button exhibit, Michael Jackson, a speed boat, the fattest man and smallest woman to name a few). It's pretty cheap though, even if it is small.
I remember visiting this place as a kid, but was disappointed with my visit. It was a little run down and boring. A family may enjoy going through, but I wouldn't recommend it for older visitors. There are just so many better things to spend your money on in the area.
Totally not worth the money. 1/2 the live interactions didnt work, most things were just you reading about the record and does not give a real good description of the record. It just did not have a real WOW factor to it.
So I'm an upbeat, intellectually curious guy without unreasonable expectations, I hope, but this was a little disappointing. Half the interactive exhibits don't work and the other half are stupid, you might learn a thing or two but you mostly wander through a few sparse rooms reading plaques on the wall with model recreations of this and that. You'd expect much better from Ripley's - we ended up adding this attraction to a multi-ticket package (purchased at Ripley's Haunted Adventure, way more fun) at little charge, which low cost for our experience is the only thing preventing me from being aggravated again by the experience as I wrote the review. Wife and I accidentally exited the building early and though we could have gone back in to explore for anything we missed, we were like "eh let's do something else anyway." I had more fun getting my mouth burned at the Pepper Palace, and that was free.
