We went through the museum while waiting for the Christmas Light display. The museum has been updated with new displays. There is even a statue of Capt. Jack Sparrow made from ???. You will have to attend to see what he is made of. A must see when in the area.

I have never been before and wondered if I and my 6 year old would like it. We did, some things were a little gruesome but I managed to move her away from them as there were some many other things to see, but we did enjoy the experience.

All The Ripley's "odditoriums" are fascinating. I have been to four around the United States. Each has enough different displays that you do not feel you have been there before. These collections are artifacts from around the world. Sometimes unusual feats are spotlighted. It is always so fascinating to visit.

I've been to ST Augustine many times and kept putting off the Ripley's exhibit,but we finally checked it out over the Thanksgiving Holiday. It was amazing,from the exotic stuff from around the world to the games and trickery to fool the eye it was very entertaining..I would definitely do it again because I'm sure we missed things.

Very interesting and often creepy exhibits. The kids really enjoyed visiting. There was so much to see that it was overwhelming. It is sort of a once in a lifetime thing... interesting the first time yet nothing you feel you would be interested in doing again.

My wife likes to visit the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museums. I feel if you have seen one you have seen them all. If you haven't been to one before then it is interesting to see.

I love Ripley's and all the blizzar collections it houses. One thing l love about Ripley's is the matchstick cathedral. I also think I'd be cool if you had live shows with some bizzar/unbelieveable acts like Eric the lizard man etc.

We've taken our kids, ages 8 & 10, to this museum twice and we love it each time! I was surprised to see all of the negative reviews but I think you have to just go with it. It is an Odditorium, so the exhibits are going to be weird and a it quirky. There is a ton of stuff... More

From the huge ferris wheel erector set to the human bone necklace and real shrunken head... to the very fun shadow-maker. Certainly entertaining and even educational! Highly recommend.

In fairness, I had not been to any Ripley's before. There seemed to be too much emphasis on weapons, torture, and things made out of human parts. The items of superb craving were astonishing but the ones made out of gum wrappers, etc. weren't. I don't thing I'll go to any other ones.
