We took our 9 year old daughter there, being older parents, we grew up with reading Ripleys in the newspaper too. We were happy with what was on display and also read facts on the walls, even bathroom or toilet ones inside the rest rooms! Our daughter loved it too. It is self guided and paced. It took about an... More

From tiny painted cockroaches, to a large model of a space station made from match sticks, this museum contains hundred of interesting items. We loved the old arcade machines, which still actually work.

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

I am so 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... More

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heads, to wax statues of the tallest man, random tribal items, a tree house parked in the front, Egyptian artifacts, historical documents, this place has a little bit of everything.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
