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!

We were passing time until our flight and decided to go in. Surprisingly we really enjoyed all the rooms, tidbits of information and things to look at. I would recommend for a place to go with kids.

No matter how many times I've been to these Ripley museums, it still creeps me out! It's all in fun, but it's really a good thing that some of these creepy things aren't real! Or are they?!

I am a fan of checking out weird things. That said, the price point does not justify the entertainment value, especially with all that Key West has to offer. I tried to get into it but nothing grabbed me.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?
