  • This attraction is true to Ripley's book. There is a motley collection of unusual objects. Beautiful atmosphere, beautiful colorful décor, but a little dated. Times Square offers better activities than this one. However, my 12-year-old boy who owns Ripley's book enjoyed it.

  • I've been here a few times and it's always a pleasant experience. Today I went with my 6yr old son again and it felt like a new experience for him. He loved and I loved it. We took our time through the exhibits and lasted about 2grs from start to finish. Its definitely a cool fun experience to check out at least once. Staff is friendly and check in process is super easy and quick. It is self guided.
  • This was a nice place to experience and tour in the Big Apple. The exhibit is self toured so I probably spent half an hour( 30 minutes) there, looking at all the artifacts & admiring each piece. My favorite would have to be near the entrance, which is a Captain America statue since I am a Marvel LOVER!
