This was our first visit to a Ripley’s museum, so did not know what to expect. There are many interesting displays. We spent 2 hours walking through it. There is a lot to read. Probably not good for very yong kids.

We spent a couple hours in here. The tunnel was my favorite part (we did it twice). It’s a trip! Highlights include Hemingway’s typewriter and glasses (see pics).

My 12 year old son saw a sword swallower on Mallory Square. So we went. I should have known it would be boring from the terrible animatronics in the lobby. It took us less than 30 minutes to walk through. The displays seem outdated and...More

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?

There is parking outside, id suggest to not park In Duval street as it will be unlikely youl find parking there. Just go one or two streets away.
