Rylan's Review:
   This place has lots of cool gross stuff, like the real live shrunken human head! The optical illusion tunnel at the end was fun too - we got really dizzy walking through it, I felt like I was spinning all day!

Mom's Notes:

   Ripley's is no museum; rather it is a self titled "Odditorium", which is fitting for an attraction that prides itself on displaying bizarre exhibits. As you pull into the parking lot, you may find it strange that the building itself appears to be toppling over as though it is falling into a sinkhole. At Ripley's, the abnormal is normal; you will soon realize that the place is booming with optical illusions. Among the stranger exhibits are an authentic shrunken human head, a portrait of singer Beyonce made of candy, a mural of Jimi Hendrix constructed of thousands of playing cards, the smallest production car in existence and several other oddities.
   There are several interactive exhibits for children, and for a nominal fee you can have your fortune read by the fortune telling machine. This attraction is great for older children and teenagers who can appreciate the oddities. At first glance, many of the attractions seem normal until you take the time to read about them. One that stood out to us was a replica of the Mona Lisa which appeared deceptively normal, except for the fact that it was painstakingly made from thousands of pieces of burnt toast. Fans of the popular television show "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" will enjoy this museum as it has several tributes to Robert Ripley, his work, and the television series.
