Completely updated with new galleries, exhibits, and a new attraction, you’ll find more than 1,000 square meters with more than 300 genuine artifacts, amazing stories and videos, interactive games, and more.

Ripley’s Impossible LaseRace is included in general admission. Here you can test your speed and agility as you race through the maze without touching the lasers while trying to achieve the best score.
