Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum
With more than 300 oddities on exhibit, from a statue of Marilyn Monroe made from shredded money to torture chamber devices, Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum is a curiosity and a record of all things strange. The original Ripley's in Orange County displays similar items, but the Hollywood version overlooking the Walk of Fame, is much larger, and therefore, much stranger. For example, a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex with a backwards-running clock in his mouth looms on the roof (his feet are inside the building), and a stuffed two-headed goat awaits guests inside. Although this is a fun museum, some of the exhibits might be too grotesque for younger children.
Family members wanted for the 1st time to visit Riley's. It was suppose to be the highlight of their vacation as I had told them how exciting and bizarre it is. Well, we arrived at the address, but were told they would be closed for several weeks for remodeling and adding more features! If they had posted that info on their website, might not have been so bummed out. Of course, when some members return in the summer, I will call ahead to check if they are open, but extremely disappointed.
The place is nice for 7-14 year olds. Im a teenager and i went, i thought it was ok, and somparts were cool, but others were stupid. You will spend like 5-20mins in there. I would recomend, unless your very... picky i should say, ex. =like sayin ''that could never happen'' or if you have no imagination and think everything is fake unless you can do it. OTHERWISE!! you should check it out.
It wasnt really all theat fun... Pretty boring... Halfway into it, my girlfriend and I was lookin for an exit... lol... And it was really hot. I really wouldnt recommend it to anyone... Unless you are really really bored...
The price for the entrance was to much for the museum. Maybe they should consider lowering the price of the entrance. Some interesting things but not to much. It was okay, but not somewhere I would go again.
Two words: "Huge disappointment!" I really had hoped something "special" would catch my interest; nothing did. It felt like I was going through my Uncle's attic or basement. The place was cluttered and not-well-kept. It didn't even hold the interest of the kids. The experience was NOT FUN. I do not recommend it. It was not worth the time nor the money.
Although some of the exhibits were interesting, the museum over all is not worth the expense of getting in. It is dirty and does not appear to be well cared for. I would skip it unless you are really desperate for something do to. :o)
if you seen the tv show you seen the museum save you money go to one of the other parks.We visted in Aug 2006 most of what we seen had been seen on the show.if you have never seen the show you might enjoy it. NOT
