"So simple!"
April 2019
Having tickets ahead of time was so much easier (and less expensive)! It was exciting, fun, and well worth it. I will use Reserve Direct again!

My grandson wanted to go for his birthday, i surprised him with tickets. He loved it! As far as for me...It was just ok. The price could've been cheaper for the venue.

"Oddities galore"
September 2018
This was my families first time to the odditorium, although I visited a few times 30+ years ago. It's been around a looong time! There are so many cool things to see. There's quite a bit of reading to do to get the whole experience, and that might not be too easy for kids say younger than 10. It's good that you go at your own pace so you can spend half an hour if you want or 3 hours if you want. It's definitely a cool thing to do while in Myrtle.

Tip: You can take pictures. Good for older kids 10 and up if you want them to read.

"Not Impressed"
September 2018
Luckily we were able to get discounted tickets from the Reserve Myrtle Beach site. It saved us $40. But, overall there's nothing new here at Ripley's. It's the same as the other Ripleys. We spent $55 for a family of 5 and were out of there in 40 minutes.

We always hit all the Ripley's attractions when we go to Myrtle Beach, and saving the museum ticket for a possible rainy or extra hot day is the perfect thing!

This was not what I expected. It had some authentic items but was mostly videos of historical people who Mr Ripley had found through the years. There were a few fun things inside but it was really not quite what I expected.

My husband and I visited along with my sister, her daughter, son-in-law, and their two year old daughter. It was a very good time. The little one enjoyed looking at all the fish and loved the sharks! We found the Pearl Harbor display to be quite interesting. It is nice to be able to walk through at your own pace, stopping to rest, if needed. We ended our visit visiting the gift shop. I believe that everyone had an enjoyable - and maybe even educational - time.

Pretty fun experience but nothing special, a bit overpriced in my opinion and a few interactive machines were broken.
