I think this probably appeals more to the kids. It was interesting at times and I enjoyed it. But, I didn't love this Ripley's Museum like I did the one I visited at age 12. I did feel like some of the stuff I had seen before. Definitely do the combo ticket if you are going to the aquarium too... You can go to the aquarium, odditorium, and 1 other attraction for $40/person.
There were so many fun things to see and do in there! There are three floors, you can take an elevator up and then its following the whole thing back down. But beware, if you think you need to use the bathroom - do so when you start (it is on the 3rd floor) once you get back down, there is no way back up!
The exhibits were cool and interesting, but I think it's time that they did some updating in there. All in all, we were entertained.
First visit to a Ripley's Museum. Must say there are some truly spooking things in there...some I wish I didn't know. Worth the visit. Not sure I'd do it again simply because I won't soon forget the things I saw or read about.
