Visited last week and it was really disappointed, I wouldn't consider a justin Beiber portrait made out of jelly beans as something I had to believe or not. Young kids may be impressed, but personally I wish I had kept my money.

I went here with my son and we both had a nice time. Its a good way to get out of the heat and spend some quality time together in St. Augustine. I have been to a few Ripleys museams over the years and what makes this one unique is the building is very old and historical, and large. When... More

I am not sure but maybe this place is for families with kids. It supposed to be both weird and funny. But can two-headed goat or six-legs cow be funny? Sorry but for me it's not.

This a great attraction for all ages with so much to see around every corner. It's mostly all inside, so good for any weather day as well. Having been there several times with different visiting guest, I was pleased to find they rotate and bring in new items fairly often. Save yourself a little $$ and look and book online.... More

Probably the best Ripley's I've been to. Built in an old house with a couple of stories, it will not disappoint. Took a tour and it was about an hour or so to go through it all and read the stories. Great if you like some interesting history. First time I'd seen a real Shrunken Head! Amazing. Give yourself time... More

Thank you for making Ripley’s a part of your visit to St. Augustine. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit here! Besides being a house back in the day, it was also a hotel and Robert Ripley would frequently stay here! He loved this building,... More

I can see where kids might find it entertaining but as an adult I felt like it was a waste of $15.00. It could stand some modernization.

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. We are currently working on updating a portion of the museum in... More

We absolutely enjoy visiting Ripley's odditorium any place we travel. The exhibits are changed often so you see different displays each time you visit. Not something that a young child enjoys, our 8 year old granddaughter was a little created out but adults find it exciting.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a nice review! We do try very hard to have something for all ages, including the interactive galleries with lots of fun interactive exhibits for kids. We do understand that there are a few dark places, but we are working on eliminating those from our show. We appreciate you making... More
