Lots of neat things

It Did cost a lot so if you plan on taking the family have a lot of money. But the exhibits were cool to look at and interact with.

My 11 year old son chose this as the one thing he had to do in St. Augustine. He and my husband really enjoyed the exhibits. My 7 year old didn't really like it until the end because there was lots of reading involved (to find out what each exhibit is about). At the end there is a really neat... More

Fun for the whole family. I would say it is a little overpriced, but the kids had a blast. The museum is filled with cool and some amazing things. It's a once and done kinda place.

We live in the area and visit Ripleys when family comes in to town. Every time we go there are new items and its refreshing to see that its not the same things every time. We did the wax hands for the first time and Brooklyn was great. She listened to what the kids wanted and they turned out great!

We felt it was a big waste of time. I was expecting more incredible natural wonders. Wish I had spent the money on the Fountain of Youth instead.

I have never been on a ghost tour before, the gentlemen hosting tour were great. Although i never saw a real ghost there were "orbs" on my pictures. I enjoyed the tour due to the guides. Make sure you eat before the tour. we tried to stop at a few resturants after the tour and they were closed... we ordered... More

Castle ghost tour was a waste of money. The museum was ok. Would not do it again. Did enjoy riding the red train all through the town and learned a lot of history.

This is great for the kids.....and the rest of the family. Weird but true?! stuff with photos, stories and displays of the world's oddities. Worth a trip if you haven't seen it.

The place had a certain smell in there that I didn't like but then again it's full of old stuff. I thought it was too pricey for what it's worth. That's just my opinion, there were interesting stuff that you would think is fake and just made up. Something my 7 years old would think could be real. I've been... More
