“Average Ripley's w/a western twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

This Ripley's is a little smaller than these museums typically are, but still entertaining! There is an upstairs with several interesting exhibits related to the old west. Of course, there are the typical Ripley's oddities - shrunken heads, dino bones, etc. All in all, a fun way to spend an hour or so.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Thought we would stop in and check it out. It was a total waste of money and time. One of the exhibits actually made us sick and dizzy!! There is so much to see and do in Jackson and don't waste your time.

“believe it or not, grownups are not good judges of what kids find fascinating!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

i hesitated to spend $40 for this attraction. just shows how little i know about what really interests our 5 year olds.
both girls spent an hour investigating all parts of the museum - they especially liked the tilted house and the vampire.
after one hour, girl A left with me and spent another HOUR in the gift shop. i believe she picked up and looked at everything. she did not want to leave.
finally girl E was cajoled outside by her grandfather.
she spent days talking about the the two headed animals.

upon our return to jackson after a camping trip, back the girls went.

so, believe it or not, grownups are not good judges of what kids find fascinating!

Better things to spend your money on in Jackson unless you have small children who do not know any better.
