Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum Panama City area location is more than just a museum of the strange and the unusual, but a collection of oddities housed in what appears to be a sinking ship, the S.S. Ripley. The oddity museum known as Ripley’s Believe It or Not “Odditorium” houses the bizarre, the macabre, the one-of-a-kind exhibits that have made the late Robert Ripley famous. The collection of rarities from moon rocks returned to the earth’s surface by Apollo astronauts to the Berlin Wall remnants salvaged from the rubble in 1990 that long separated East from West are compelling. « less

It was not what we had expected but we really enjoyed it. Not a whole lot you can say about it because it is what it is, but it was still interesting.

We went to the Ripley's in St. Augustine, FL, but this one had so much more for the little ones (had a 3 and 4 year old with us) to do and interact with. The 7D theater was awesome! We actually spent about 3 1/2 hours here. Bring some extra change ($1 bills) for some of the little extra things... More

I saw a lot of unique things here. I especially loved the ship carved out of Jade. Worth through admission.

Taking a break from sunning on the pristine white sandy beaches, we decided to visit this Ripley's as we have been to others in various cities and each has their own distinctive flare. This one showcased the 'Odditorium' with very interesting items. We were pleasantly entertained with the assortment of exhibits that appealed to each of my family member's crazy... More

My family and I enjoyed our day there. We did the works tickets(combo with wonder works). It was interesting and entertaining but didn't take long to go through it. Make sure to not plan it as a "day" trip but more like a quick stop.

$20 for a couple of hours entertainment - OK, I guess we do pay nearly that much for a movie ticket, so no complaining. There are lots of oddities to capture your attention and the movies are good, just toooooo short. The most irritating thing we discovered was the crowd of people. We were there during peak season and the... More

My husband and I brought out 2 boys here (7 & 12). They weren't very interested in many of the sites. Definitely not worth the money. The 7D moving theater was pretty awesome, although it could have last a little longer.

We went to Ripleys just for the interactive movie theater. We paid for admission and it included both movies, which was good. However, the movies are only about 6 minutes long. They are a blast and we definitely enjoyed them, but they do cost too much.

Loads of actual, and replications, of oddities from around the world. From artifacts from the Titanic to stuffed two-headed animals, to fantastic artworks from the Orient, you'll see it here!
