You'll only go to this once, but you'll see things up close that been featured on the show. Price is a little high but like I said you'll only do this once in your life.

This is a smaller Ripleys in comparison to some. We did not go in to the museum. We rode the 4D motion master. It is always fun and exciting. They just never last long enough..... ;)

We have been to many Ripley's museums before. This was the first trip to Williamsburg! My children absolutely love this place. We are all fascinated with all the cool things people come up with and the rare collectibles.

After spending several days outside in 94 degrees plus weather, I decided we needed to do something inside where it was cool. I thought they would be bored but they were not. We watched 4D movies with seats that vibrated at certain points in the movie. Also some water spraying and bubbles floating. Then there were the games, some type of laser tag and a light with colors game they could compete against each other playing. Spent total time of around 3 and a half hours.

It cannot be compared to the much, much larger Ripleys in St. Augustine, FL and Gatlinburg, TN. One thing that it does have is a 4-D theater where one not only experiences 3D but

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.

The shows themselves are appropriate for all ages, although sometimes small children are scared of the dinosaurs.
