About these ratings

At the Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum -- easily recognized by the massive shark escaping from the front fa├žade -- you'll find oddities from around the world. Authentic shrunken heads, two-headed animals and more than 500 other mind-bending exhibits wait for you in the site's 12-themed galleries. You can also visit the museum's Impossible LaseRace, the Marvelous Mirror Maze and the Candy Factory.

But recent visitors are torn on whether you really need to see Ripley's to believe it. Some say it's extremely entertaining, but others cite the attraction as place for tourists. As one TripAdvisor user writes, "Although it is a classic tourist trap, it is done with quality, and interesting exhibits."

You can't miss Ripley's along the Ocean City Boardwalk, just north of Trimper's Rides and Amusements. During the winter, the museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., whereas during the summer, it's open from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. (with extended weekend hours). Admission is $13.99 for adults and $7.99 for children over age 6 (Kids under age 5 can enter for free), and you can save yourself a couple extra bucks by purchasing tickets online. For more information, check out the Ripley's Believe it or Not! website.
