We thought this was the best part of our multiple stop train tour. The displays were very interesting. Definitely worth a visit if you're into the strange and interesting.

We rode the red train trolly tour which is all part of the Ripley's. It was enjoyable. But while visiting the gift I lost my sunglasses and the staff went beyond to help me find them. I had given up on finding them when one staff member took a flash light to look under some things and found them brought... More

Good way to cool off during a hot day while looking at strange exhibits. Reasonably priced. Awesome old building. A must see.

The lady that sold us our tickets was rude to us because we were not affiliated with the Red Tour Trolley, and she also wasn't very accommodating when I asked to go through the gate due to size restrictions. The exhibits were the same as we saw in Panama City on there were fewer and it just didn't seem very... More

Sure it's a tourist trap, but really it is a fun time and well worth your time if you have kids. Don't miss the statue of David in the courtyard out front. Inside is a treasure trove of information. From the odd to the really odd. Riley's travels around the world are of course legendary so why not see if... More

I always go to Ripley's. My kids love it and so do I. Although many of the places seem to have the same exhibits it is still a great way to spend a few hours if quality time with your family learning new and always strange facts. Beautiful exterior of this building also!

Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to leave us such a wonderful review! Back in the day this building used to be a hotel, and Robert Ripley would stay here. He fell in love with our city and this beautiful building; it was his dream to open a Ripley's here! So now it houses the original... More

Good tourist spot. If you area interested in the weird stuff, go visit it. Night time is better as you get a little big more of the atmosphere.

This cost my family of 4 about $45, which in my opinion isn't too bad for a tourist attraction that you can spend a decent amount of time in. This is the original Ripley's so that is what sold me on going with my wife and kids. There are some interesting things within the walls and some odd things that... More
