You get to see things you never saw before. From shrunken heads to 8 ft man statues. Amazing structures made of animal bone to match sticks. Don't miss!

Would have been able to enjoy it more if I didn't have my 3 year old grandson with us. He was really too young to enjoy and too impatient to let us take our time.

I miss museums. I miss the wax museums, dungeons of horror, walks through side shows,' 800 pound gorilla' exhibits, fun houses. This reminds me of a kinder, gentler time, Loud, strange, corny and fascinating all at the same time. Long may it stand.

The kids were looking for something to do on a rainy day. Price was affordable under $20 and it took them about an hour to see everything.

I didn't see one but the majority of the things to see are all on one level. I'm sure you could call the place and find out if they do have a wheel chair! 😀

Ripley's is wheelchair accessible from start to finish, but I don't Believe they provide wheelchairs. You can call them directly at (609) 347-2001 to find out. Hope this helped.
