This place I think charges way too much. It was neat looking at all the different things but I don't feel it was worth what we paid. It's not something that we would do again.

I had never been to a Ripley's before and my girlfriend suggested it. I grew up watching the show which was filmed here at the Ripley's in St. Augustine, so I was excited for my visit. I loved it! The museum has countless artifacts, and reproductions of the weird items in the collection. Throughout there are plenty of interactive exhibits... More

There were many odd and unusual things to see here. It is 3 stories and filled with so much. It takes about 2 hours to see it all. Parking is free.

Narrow hallways so you may be slowed down by some people who stop for extended periods. Overall a good time and the spinning tunnel at the end is sweet.

I love Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museums and have been going to them since I was a kid. I've probably been to 4 or 5 of them around the country. We were in St. Augustine for the weekend and I was prepared to skip this one -- until I learned it was the very first permanent museum and houses... More

I am very sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience. I have heard a lot of comments over the years, but rarely that it is "boring." We have over three stories of odd and unusual exhibits, dozens of interactive, hands on exhibits, and items that are usually deemed fun for all ages. I am truly sorry that you did not... More

I was here at Ripley's 53 years ago and loved it. I wanted our grandson to see it and he loved it. It was his favorite place in Florida. It is also one of the cheapest, it even has free parking. This is the original Ripley's and has many odd and quirky things to see and do. It is in... More
