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

My husband and I went. We purchased the combo tickets for the museum and the 4D Moving theatre. I wouldn't have minded seeing the Wonderworks place across the road, but we didn't want to spend that much time indoors. We enjoyed the museum. There was a good mix of interactive stuff to keep kids interested. The 4D movie was fun,... More

We visited here with friends and had a very enjoyable morning. So much to see and take in. Also had a great ride in their moving theater. Really enjoyed all of the interesting things in this collection of the unusual.

I have been fantasizing Ripley's for the longest time. I drove simply to PCB to satiate the Ripley's sized hole in my soul. It really measured up to my expectations, but it could have lasted a little longer. However, for my first time it was acceptable. I would try it again and it will probably be better this time as...

The overall experience was just so-so. There are some interesting facts and exhibits, but sort of like walking through a picture book. Enjoyed seeing the statue of Robert Walden, the world's tallest man. Sort of felt like I needed to slow the kids down to get our money's worth. We visit PCB often, and while the kids never have said... More

Growing up in a tourist area I am very Skeptical of family amusement places. But this one has something for everyone. Great on a day when it's bad weather outside. Had hands on exhibits and also interesting and silly facts. Kept our teenager and 9 yr old interested. We all loved the rope climbing thing at the end. It was... More

You can't miss the amazing building as you approach Ripleys. It's packed full of interesting exhibits with loads to look at and read about. It was great to have the interactive exhibits as well, the moving tunnel was very strange! The layout guides you around easily so you don't miss anything. What is great about RIpleys is the fact that... More

I was I would have spent more time here but there was nothing that caught the attention of my 8 yr old so untill the movie at the end. There were a lot of interesting exhibits but I didn't get to spend the time I want to. Combine with wonder works for savings on tickets.
