    Great place to take a break from time square madness, however a little disappointed by the guest services department. I had a mobile glitch and was charged for 2 extra tickets. I was given a business card to contact  Mr Sperling (Operation manager) to get a refund. I called and left a voicemail, also sent an email. Never heard back. Its been a while. So lost few bucks. Other than that not bad.

    Not super big but pretty cool place. Quiet too. I really enjoyed how quiet it was being that it's Times Square and the sidewalk is super busy. My daughter and I had a great time looking at stuff.

    This place was historically intriguing. It could use a refresh and more interactive segments because those were really fun. Not amazing for dates, but a good stop to make while on one.

    Very good for outings with the family, especially to get them out of the crowds of Times Square. The exhibits were interesting for the most part. My family and I enjoyed the black hole exhibit. What a ride! One thing I would like to add is that the exhibits are a little outdated. It would be nice if they added new ones. Overall, it was a good experience.

    It's really filled with a bunch of written templates coupled with their prototypes. Half or something being the real stuff. But my best part was the trippy walk to the exit. You won't just see it, you'll feel it! But that's just about it.

    Lots of cool facts. Was very interested by the hands on acctivitys and I think that is very good. One of the coolest things there is the black hole which uses fluorescent lights to trick the mind into thinking your going around in a circle. If your anywhere close come check it out.

    This place is a joke. We went with kids thinking they would learn something interesting and have fun but it turned out to be like a museum with some unique facts. The scary portion of this attraction was not even any closer to definitely looks like they are charging us to pay the rent of their property at Times Square

    Ripley's was great. There weren't many people there, unlike lots of times square. We did go fairly early in the morning, but there was no wait. Artifacts were interesting, and unique. We spent around 2 hours here, but could have spent 3 if we had more time.

    As if it's not always exciting enough just to be in Time Square, Ripley's is a fantastic addition to your visit (I found a deal on Groupon and being that my family had just seen and loved 'The Greatest Showman', I knew Ripley's would be a perfect stop). Being that pretty much everything is 'hands on', children have a blast. And there's so much to see and explore, you could easily spend about two or three hours, wandering the rooms and halls. It really is a fascinating place. You're guaranteed to leave there with a giant smile on your face and plenty to discuss.
