Located on Richmond Road near the Williamsburg Premium Outlets, the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum & 4D Theater offer an exciting experience for guests of all ages. The museum features more than 350 exhibits and artifacts and 11 themed galleries. The 4D theater offers two thrilling 3-D films with state-of-the-art surround sound, and air and water misters, as well as other sensory experiences.
We visited Ripley's on a rainy day. It was fun, the staff was helpful. The 4-D movies were interesting, but the front row seats didn't work.
If you like Ripley's Believe It or Not cartoons or the TV show, then you will like this place. If highlights some of the many facts and exhibits Ripley found in his ravels throughout the world. The price for the exhibits was quite a bit for what is there especially if you are bringing children. I still had fun seeing the miniatures exhibit along with the ancient weapons. It was also the first time I saw a 4D movie (3D but with water, wind, and scents) and will I am glad I experienced that I will never watch a 4D movie again. There are also some games to play that are included with your ticket along with some optical illusions and brain teasers that are more for kids than adults. This is a good spot for children and they will enjoy it and the adults will find some things to enjoy as well. If you like Ripley's and want to see how the exhibits are set up and see a 4D movie and some other things I recommend a visit, otherwise I would save your money for other thing to do in WIlliamsburg.
Piscataway, New Jersey
Ripley's in W'burg. is a great place to have family fun on a rainy day; exhibits are hilarious, and the 4D movies provide a multisensory experience of pure fun; and best of all... it is not a very expensive attraction.
I think the kids would have rathered watch the TV show than go through this tiny place. They loved the one in Canada and this is not even close to that caliber.
