Ripley's Believe It Or Not! / Plaza Theatre Of Wax
Located directly across from the Alamo, this museum displays shocking wax mannequins so similar to the heroes, celebrities and fictional characters they represent, that it's almost creepy. You'll see Jim Carrey, Charlton Heston, Frankenstein, Dracula and many more. You'll feel like you got your money's worth in this odd two-for-one museum. With Ripley's Believe It or Not!, you'll find yourself saying, "I didn't know that," "Ooo, gross!" and "Holy cow!" The weird items should be safe for kids, but if you have a squeamish little one, don't go into the cellar.
Pros this place has wax exhibits from religous, historic, horror, to movies, series, and celebrities. You might want to bring a little extra money while you are there because you can make a wax figure of your hand and dye it different colors put wax roses in the hands whatever you want to do to it. You can also take pics of your face and they will stick it in the computer to make a different background. If your on vacation you have money to spend so why not spend it on something fun! Cons none
This is an awesome place, everytime time I go to San Antonio I go there. This year I can't wait to take my daughter she is going to love it.
Money is definatly worth it. Its not even all that expensive. The museum is actually pretty big.
If you got kids or just want to add some fun to your trip, if you have 15% you can spare, take a trip on over to Ripleys and the Wax Museum. Ripleys is just plane amazing, you must see it to belive it. Its 10x more better than the TV Show Ripleys, and many times you will run into people that are in the Guiness Book of Records, or were on the show. Its awsome.
The Wax Mueseum, well, just make sure you bring a camera. There are life size and accurate models of famous celebrities including Opra, George Bush, The Rock, Prince, Princess DIanna, and hundreds more. They are accurate down to the blackhead on their face. The only thing that keeps you from not beliving that they are real is that if you look at their shoes, they are melted onto a platform. But you can still take pictures with them and tell all your friends and family that you met Opra or the President and they will probably belive you.
Its completly worth every cent, my most favorite place ive been in Texas!
Ripley's has lots of exhibits that are interesting and a few interactive items that make it more fun.
The wax museum is pretty nice. There is a section for horror movies that is good to see. It adds a little excitement to the tour. There is also a section for Texas history that is interesting.
Each of the museums is seperate, so the two get expensive considering the time it takes to see them. The kids will like this museum and it's open later then the others that surround it. If pressed for time, you can skip these museums.
