Overview

The strangest place in Key West! A museum of the odd, bizarre, and unusual. Featuring over 550 exhibits in 10,000 square feet of air conditioned comfort. As seen on TV. Your self guided tour will take you through 15 themed galleries containing some of the most unusual objects, items, and collections, in the world. Robert Ripley traveled to over 200 countries in his lifetime collecting oddities everywhere he went. Featured items include: a man-eating shark, an 8-foot tall statue of Captain Jack Sparrow made from recycled car parts, and a beautiful carving of a landscape made entirely out of camel bone. Stroll pass Matchstick art and singing robots to enter the world of the bizarre. Inside you'll see video clips from the top rated TBS television series starring Dean Cain, stand next to Miracle, the actual white buffalo who's odds of being born pure white are one in ten million, then try your best to remain upright as you inch your way through the Vortex Tunnel, a totally mind-blowing experience. And that's still not all! Take a selfie next to a life size replica of the worlds tallest man or capture your shadow on a wall. Purchase Tickets online for discount pricing!

Many of the items were out of order for interactive stuff. Short...and overall not very interesting at all. Can skip this altogether. Of all those I've visited, this was by far the worst one. Also GPS directions incorrectly locate the entry...which is on Duval.More

It did survive, but not unscathed. We are closed to repair some damages. We hope to be open very soon! Maybe 7-10 days?
