    There are more than one Ripley's, and where there is a flock of tourists, there is a Ripley's. We did not go inside in order to not spend the money. It has a ferris wheel, carnival caricature figures, rubber heads of people, and the like.
    Fee is $15, or $12.26(how do you get that rounded?)

    I don't believe I actually spent some good money to see this come'on.

    I thought I was actually going to see a two-headed goat (like the one in Niagara Falls museum) not just a picture of one. I thought they really kept the oldest coin in a glass case here for inspection not a three-foot plaster mock-up of the real thing.
    There were some actual old/interesting things in there like the coin-operated nickelodeum or the dress that the victim of Jack the Ripper wore. But for the most part it was just a lot of walking and looking at junk (P.T. Barnum would have been proud of this place and I was the sucker).

    I had figured it was some hype involved; just look how they can kill an hour of TV time for one new stunt for their record books. But I at least thought that they would live up to the hype somewhat.

    Michealangelo's David, replica

    Hidden in the hedges outside Ripley's museum is a replica Michelangelo's 'David'. This replica was transcribed directly from the original. Apparently it is one of only two "exact" replicas in the world. It was carved the 1960's by Sollazini & Sons of Carrara and the marble was excavated from the Fantiscritti Quarry in Tuscany, from which the original's marble was excavated.

    You must see the Ripley's Museum. It is called 'Believe it or not' ... and you will believe many new things.
    You can stand next to (near) a very tall man. In the photo you will see my friend Edilma. She is about 1 meter 67cm
