Where are we going today?

Kids - are you ready to see some pretty incredible things in Atlantic City? Well, just head on over to Ripley's Believe It Or Not!

Believe it or not - there are some strange things you will encounter over the 12,000 sq ft of exhibits! The museum features 14 themed galleries, and over 400 exhibits and artifacts, so there is a lot of exploring to do - we better get started!

Ripley's Believe It Or Not is the ONLY place in Atlantic City that you can see a spider made from knives and scissors, and 14,000 jellybeans in the shape of a roulette wheel. We can believe that!

The museum also features the smallest production car, as well as a skeleton that once passed as a mermaid skull!

Ripley was actually a real man, who traveled the world collecting some pretty special pieces, and when he brought them back, no-one could quite believe them! From that collection, it grew into what you can visit today in Atlantic City. 

It makes for a very fun and curious day out for those inquisitive kids - it might inspire them to create some strange items of their own!

So why not check out the most unusual side of New Jersey at Ripley's Believe It Or Not!

    I LOVE this place! In fact I'm going back for a second time this weekend! It's full of crazy, quirky things and facts. It's a great way to spend a good few hours learning facts to shock people with! Even better as they do lots of offers for entry :)

    I had expected there to be a lot more hands on interactive things to do but it really was more of a museum of oddities, many of which I just wasn’t that impressed with. The knitted car was quite impressive as were some of the pieces of art made from unusual things. Toast art anyone? But there really wasn’t anything that stood out for me. Quite a few of the more hands-on exhibits were also out of order at the time of my visit which only added to my disappointment. MirrorMaze and LaseRace while fun both last only a couple of minutes and overall...Read More

    We had planned in advance to include Ripleys into our London visit with our two children,and thought it was the perfect way to end a day,when all the other big attractions are closed but it was too early to retreat back to our hotel.From the outside its bright and noisy and circus-like,drawing you in,and there are weird and wonderful displays to catch the eye and imagination before you have even purchased your ticket.The entry price is very expensive for a museum being nearly £30 for an adult,but luckily we had 2for1 tickets found online,which...Read More

    Nice building and stuff inside. Prices are £30ish per person so you'll will need the bank account of Sir Alan Sugar.

    Brilliant few hours. If you're into this kind of stuff - trivial facts and fascinating oddities, you won't be disappointed. Lots of variation in the different areas and artefacts/models and plenty of fun to be had. Would definitely go back again. The price seemed a bit much at first but I was more than satisfied with what I paid by the end.
