There is a lot to see & read about. There are a few kid friendly parts. Watch your kids on a couple of stairways. A few points made it boring. My opinion only. I would like a little bit of light music played. Just instrumental to not have some awkward quiet parts. I like the pretend shooting range. I think... More

The Ripley's museum, train tour and golf course hold lots of fun for friends and family of all ages. My husband and I spent a whole day with the Ripley crew. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and helpful. That being said, I would like to give warning about the ghost tour and the museum in general. While the... More

It is fun but not a destination. The building houses all sorts of wacky items that will allow you to beat the heat for a few hours.

I have been to this attraction maybe 30 years ago and it has not changed too much. If you have never been to Ripley's it is great. I have also been to the one in Niagara Falls which was a lot smaller I believe. You can navigate through this attraction in about an hour and to be honest, the AC... More

This was $28 wasted. First, it is self guided which is normally great for us, but in this case, there was a family with 2 adults and approx 10-12 children with them. The children were all younger than 12 and the adults could not make them behave. Many times the kids would push through us, tap on exhibits & be... More

I've been to several Ripley's museums but it was cool to visit the original. This museum would be difficult to access with a wheelchair. They do have an elevator that will take you to the different floors but the walkways can be tight so even with the help of an elevator, it may be difficult for a wheelchair to navigate.... More

We enjoyed our 1st visit to this Riplys here in St Augustine. I feel like it could have been updated a bit,and It wasn't geared so much towards kids like other Riplys I have visited. It wasnt as interesting as others we have visited. Im not sure what It was... But not it was a good visit and something to... More

Thank you so much for making Ripley's part of your St. Augustine adventure! Each museum is unique to its location, so not all of the exhibits are exactly the same. For instance, here in St. Augustine this is the original Ripley's. So a lot of our exhibits are actually from Robert Ripley's personal collection. Thank you for taking the time... More

If you are in town with KIDS and looking to get out of the hot sun then stop in and check out the oddities. The kids will love to see the different exhibits and interactions they experience at the the museum. If you don't have kids then you have probably seen the tv show or the items on the internet...
