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

Thank you for supporting our warrior beach retreat! Ripley's was a very entertaining! It was a nice little break for us this week. I found several unique gifts to take home for the kids.

We didnt have a lot of time to read each and everything, but we were still there for almost 2 hrs. I think it was a bit expensive for the number of items on site. They do have an elevator. My favorite exhibit was the Titanic area. We didnt see the movie. They do allow you to take pictures.

The kids loved all of the odd finds that Mr. Ripley found. They loved the different types of paintings and the Shadow Wall Flash! A must do for all ages!

First off, go thru when you have a lot of time! They is so much to see and the exhibits can be quite detailed. My favorite one was the Titanic!! The 7D movie was so much fun!! I didn't care too much for the fact that my kids (6&2) were often bored. Even with the interactive exhibits. Overall, it was... More

First off don't buy the combo ticket to the place across the street. This place is fun and interesting. The other looks like where they store the old stuff from here that's half broken. There's lots to look at , photos out side are fun. The 3D theatre was great. My little girl was scared at first but ended up... More

We thought for the price it was not a good deal. when you have 6 adults paying and 4 small children, you would have thought they would give us a deal but No. Will not be back anytime soon.

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
