the price was overpriced for what we see. we did not like it. it is scary for the children 7 and younger the 3 floor was dark and scary. my child end up crying and we did not like it. you better use your money to go to different attraction in St. Augustine.

Only go if you have someone in your party that really wants to do this - otherwise spend your money elsewhere. I was not impressed. Would be worth seeing for $8 but not the 12 or 13 we paid. Overrated and overpriced

Actually received free tickets for the museum by listening to a travel timeshare presentation 1¼ hrs. It was worth it though, there are several levels of fun to be had here. Take your cameras and enjoy the experience.

We live nearby and I have always wanted to visit this museum.. People certainly do a lot of strange things when they have too much time on their hands. I had gotten a Living Social deal so we only paid half price. Not sure I would have enjoyed it as much if I had paid full price. You have to... More

Yes, they do! Every time I see someone doing something crazy, I get puzzled for a minute, then remember that without them, we wouldn't be as much fun to visit! Thank you so much for making Ripley's part of your visit, and for sharing such a nice review. More

If you have ever visited a Ripley's believe it or not. You have to see this one. It got a little congested toward the end but other than that, it was fun for all.

This was great!! We had a lot of fun, and they have a cute little gift shop after the tour. The service is amazing. They couldn't have better employees.
