This was not on my "Bucket List," but my friend wanted to go and take her two great grandchildren. There were some interesting things and some creepy things. Some items were not what I was expecting; but then, I'm not sure what I was expecting. The kids seemed to really enjoy it. I guess there is something of interest for... More

First time in and it was fun to see all the facts and weird things to do. The end was the best, can't spoil it! Worth the visit if you've never gone. Can see why returning wouldn't be worth the value. Took about an hour to walk and enjoy the whole museum.

Tickets were easy to purchase, parking is free on the grounds. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable There were a few interesting things for us to see. However, somewhat redundant. I would view their website first to see if this side trip is worth the extra money. Kids may enjoy a few of the displays, but would get bored easily. Older... More

I love Ripley's and am glad to see some up dates happening. The cashier was very helpful in helping me choose what package I wanted to use.

This place was amazing. On hand activities had you leave wondering "how did they do that" Believe or Not. Pictures made of matchsticks, hair and candy were awesome. I have never been here before. This was my first visit to St. Augustine. So if you have never gone before you should give it a try.

Pretty much a tourist trap. Took the grandkids. First you will probably have to pay for parking. That was $12. Then 6 visitors was another $80. Way too crowded and not nearly as interesting as one would think. Mildly interesting but would not do it again.

The best think about Ripleys is that it is open till 8 when everything else closes at 5. So, we went in the evening. Not crowded at all. Many interesting displays. Several things required you to put coins in. We were there about an hour. Lots of steps.

I've been coming here since I was a child and have always loved the experience. They were doing renovations when my friends and I came through but other than that the trip was amusing as always!

It's one thing to learn about history for the sake of knowledge and wisdom. However, it's quite another experience when learning puts a big smile on your face. Amazing oddities you hardly ever hear about from the news, past or present. Ripley's Believe It Or Not will make you laugh and maybe even squirm but, there's no question you'll never... More

And another piss poor experience in St. Augustine. Just lots of stuff from New Guinea, stuff to read, art work made out of candy, some shrunken heads, many pieces of "art" made out of match sticks, amongst other boring artifacts.

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience here. With over 800 exhibits, we try to have things that appeal to everyone, but it seems that we fell short in your case. That is certainly not the experience that we want our guests to have here. While I am sorry that you didn't enjoy it more, we do appreciate... More
