"Family Fun"
July 2018
We had an awesome time at the Ripley’s Museum. It was seven of us and we had fun watching the 4D movie and playing the inter active games. The artifacts and exhibits provided the kids with a lot of great information. We all had a ball and would do it again. Getting the tickets ghrough Reserve Williamsburg helped to cut the cost.

"Fascinating and Fun"

Decided to take my kids here, and was surprised by just how much we all enjoyed it! They do a nice job of combining interesting displays with interactive displays/games - so just when the kids started to get restless at looking at the displays (even though they were really enjoying them) there'd be another game around the corner. The spinning tunnel and the 4-D theater were definite highlights. The staff were great, particularly the woman working in the candy shop.

I was nice to kill a couple of hours out of the rain. They offer a military discount, the discount is you get to watch the 4D movie. People were all friendly, Believe it or Not.

Frequently Asked Questions about Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum & 4D Theater

What goes on in the 4D Theater?
We have two different shows running in our theater. They alternate every half hour starting one hour after we open. The shows are similar to an amusement park ride, only the chairs do not move so no one gets tossed around. Each show is about 15 minutes long. You watch them with 3D glasses while we spray you with air and water, tickle your legs and several other surprises. The shows themselves are appropriate for all ages, although sometimes small children are scared of the dinosaurs.


Are your exhibits different from other Ripley’s?

Yes! Everything is real and unique. Some of the Odditoriums may have a few of the same wax figures, but the artifacts are all unique to each show.


Are the attractions wheelchair accessible?

We are ADA compliant and we have 4 available spaces in our 4D Theater specially designed for guests in wheelchairs.


Where can I park?

We have ample and free parking at the Odditorium.


Do you have a snack bar?

We do not allow food or beverages in the attractions, but there are approximately 20 restaurants within a 1-mile radius of our location.

Yes. You may take as many pictures as you’d like.

 
How old do you have to be to enter by yourself?
