After attending a funeral, we decided to spend a couple of days exploring. This was so much fun! Our family of 5 really enjoyed seeing all of the things in here.

This was a total waste of time and money. It was the only attraction in St. Augustine that I hated. If you have ever seen their TV show, then that's all your going to see here. Nothing new. NOT recommended

This guy Ripley wrote the book or I should say the daily insert on weird. Some pretty fabulous artifacts, obsessive, compulsive constructs and very strange human behavior. Coming out of this place you realize that humans are capable of anything...the good, the bad and the ugly! Bring your camera...they let you take pictures!

From shrunken heads, to wax statues of the tallest man, random tribal items, a tree house parked in the front, Egyptian artifacts, historical documents, this place has a little bit of everything. It feels like a place filled with items that an explorer has collected throughout his journey the world. A must see place when in Saint Augustine. ~ReyRey @themindofreyrey

Lots of interesting artifacts, photos, and exhibits. The place is clean and accessible. It's multi leveled with an elevator for those who need it.

This museum is well worth the visit it is quirky and eclectic just like Ripley himself. When balancing the needs of a multigenerational outing it has really old stuff for serious museum enthusiasts and QR codes and facebook selfie competitions for the young at heart. Hint: If you visit this museum you get discounts at other locations in Saint Augustine

It's ok but definitely not a must-see. Overpriced for what you get. Our kids age 8 and 10 had a decent time and said I should rate a 4 instead of 3 :-)

I have been to this one before. One of the previous owners was a famous writer so it was cool to see some of the pictures from when she lived there. The line in was too long. We had purchased out ticketrs through the trolley company and there was no sign to tell you to bypass the line. We waited... More
