I love it – I went to the museum of repleys believe it or not it was great!! Omg it was. A great family attaraction well worth the price the only flaw was that you have to read alottt!! But nothing major ..
great experience – The Ripleys museums are great!! They have a lot of statues and characters to touch and pose with. Yes there is some reading to do but it's not too intensive. They also have fun things for the kiddo's to do. They can play on the interactive 2nd floor and make a wax hand. Nothing too scary unless you go to the haunted house but the museum itself is very entertaining and well worth the price. Believe it or not! (lol) By the way, the spinning light tunnel on the 3rd floor was my daughters favorite.

Bizarre aberrations await around every corner, including the man with four pupils and the ancient Iron Maiden torture device.
Hollywood, Horrors and History
Robert Ripley made a career out of traveling the world, collecting fascinating artifacts and odd facts, and then delivering them to the general public. He accumulated an amazing mixture of video loops, curious relics and "stuff" that can only be described as bizarre. See the life-like wax figures of movie stars, experience fright and fantasy in the Theatre of Horrors, and re-live the story of Texas history and heroism. No one can accuse this place of being dull.
Tourists pour in during the summer to beat the heat and amuse themselves for a few hours. The collection is diverse enough to interest most people, and the exhibits, while sometimes shocking, are not inappropriate for children.
Kinda Boring – Wax Museam was ok, but some of the figures did not look accurate at all. There is a shop inside the museam where they can take a picture of you and place it inside an astronaut, dancer, etc which was pretty neat. There is also a haunted wax area which is a good place to take a date too. The Believe it or not area was pretty boring though mostly reading plaques on a wall.... I would try the Ripleys Believe it or Not Haunted House down the street instead it looked kinda neat. . .
