Ripley's is an important museum, if not simply because it is the greatest collection of oddities on the planet, and it was all collected by one man. This was the best way for people to see the strange and unbelievable before the days of youtube and the internet, and still remains the coolest private collection of anything of all time. I'm sorry that some of these reviewers think it was boring. Clearly they have no sense of humor, or any interest in something other than politically correct museums. Is it pricey? Yeah, it is a bit expensive. But consider that your grandparents and parents grew up reading everything mr. Ripley wrote, pouring over the information because it was so unique and marvellous... and here you are saying its a boring rip-off because you've seen weird things on the internet.
