Ripley's is always fun. I probably wouldn't want to go more than once a year. It's most fun for first timer, as there are some surprises on the tour that we St. Augustine residents already know. Taking a child or someone who doesn't already know about their little tricks is fun too. A lot of the stuff in there is... More

If you've been to one Ripley's you've pretty much been to them all. Saw pretty much the same stuff I've seen in others, with a few little extras thrown in. Again, if you have been to any other Ripley's, don't waste your money seeing this one.

I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience here. With over 800 exhibits, we try to have things that appeal to everyone, but it seems that we fell short in your case. That is certainly not the experience that we want our guests to have here. While I am sorry that you didn't enjoy it more, we do... More

Not as many outrageous things to see as I might have expected. Guess it's more family friendly, since it consisted are primarily amazing art work, such as wall art made out of candy. Overall, it was pretty need.

Wow! So many crazy, cool, strange, and fun things to see, touch and learn! I loved the shrunken head and the torture chamber! This museum is far out!

With 3 floors of the most incredible displays of oddities, this place held my attention from start to finish. There were some astonishing artifacts along with the creepy stuff and downright mind boggling items. This is a place you don't want to hurry thru. And, don't forget to try interesting poses at the Shadow Wall. Definitely worth the price of... More

I love Ripley's. We always go to them if they happen to be in the area we are visiting. Been to quite a few and they never disappoint. Neither did this one. Always fascinating things and facts nobody could ever dream up!!! Easy to get to----it's on the main drag.

More of a white trash museum where the tourist are the main attraction. Full of children screaming and crying covered in germs, abnormally obese parents cursing said children. If you don't want to be taken for a fool I suggest visiting a real museum where you can walk away more enlightened.
