About Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum & 4D Theater
The Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum and 4D Theater in Williamsburg offers an exciting and family oriented experience. With exhibits ranging from Bumble Bee Transformer and Iron Man to a two headed cow and genuine shrunken head, the Ripley's Museum offers a unique and bizarre experience for people of all ages. Our Museum is the only fully indoor, year round entertainment venue in Williamsburg. Inside our museum you’ll also find our Impossible Laser Race, where guests battle the clock by avoiding the 24 laser beams to get the best time and beat their friends!
In addition to the Museum and Laser Race, Ripley’s offers a 4D Theater. Guests watch our shows with 3D glasses on a 50’ HD screen, all while getting blasted with wind, water and a host of other sensory experiences.
And after your 4D experience you can check out our Candy and Souvenir Shop!
In addition to our Museum and 4D Theater we also have our Catfish Cove Mini Golf located next door, with 18 holes of fun! It is great family fun for all ages (This is available for an additional fee).
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum & 4D Theater Frequently Asked Questions
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?
