We’ve been to these throughout the United States. In Gatlinburg Tennessee, Saint Augustine Florida, Branson Missouri and in Myrtle Beach. Just wish they would update them and put in some new stuff. The old saying..lif you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.

It was a rainy day so we decided to check out Ripley’s. Not everyone in our party wanted to go, so it ended up as myself and a 10 and 13 yr old. We all had a good time. Some very odd and strange exhibits, just what you would expect. A bit pricey, but with not much to do in a rainy day, it was worth the hour of entertainment.

Okay so I just went and enjoyed it. But I got a really creepy feeling the entire time. Almost like I wasn’t supposed to be looking at some of the things. Like the rooms with the tribal items. Gave me a creepy feeling. I also felt like someone was watching me the entire time.

We stopped in here on a Monday afternoon after a getaway at the Borgata. Its great that Ripley's is open year round. It was a perfect way to spend a snowy afternoon in March. It was $42 for two adults, which is a little steep but this is something I've been wanting to do in AC so I was willing to splurge a little. We really enjoyed all the exhibits and spent more than an hour going through the entire thing. There were alot more historical artifacts than we were expecting and we were really impressed. You might see a piece of the Berlin wall, a life mask made of Abraham Lincoln, artifacts from the indigenous people of West Africa, or the flag flown on the spacecraft of a NASA Gemini mission. The parts about "giant" men with a pituitary gland issue being part of a circus or Mr. Ripley "loving all things Chinese including this woman" are a little cringey and some of the artifacts seem like maybe they should be returned to their country of origin. But overall, it was a surprisingly enjoyable time and we would recommend this to anyone looking to do something interesting in AC on a bad weather day.

We enjoyed the amount of time we were able to spend walking around. Enjoyed hands-on activities and learning. Had many laughs and appreciated some special surprises. Not a mind-blowing experience, but a nice way to spend some time.

Ripley's isn't huge and if you walk right thru you can get thru it all in 15 minutes..SO...if you're like that don't bother you'll hate it...SO...slow down and READ the explanations of each item and enjoy yourself, TAHT's what you're there for isn't it???
