For the price and for what it is, a museum of oddities I'd say we got our monies worth. There's a few things in there you can drop quarters in such as a fortune teller machine for example. Good thing they had a change machine. There's also a few interactive exhibits my 2 young kids and I enjoyed. Not a... More

My mother and I were enjoying our time at this museum of oddities until a man from Ripley's staff started cleaning in the room we were viewing. He then proceeded to follow us to each room "cleaning" with a dirty rag all of the exhibits. We tried to stay behind or move into other rooms to get out of his... More

I did not visit Ripley's Museum, but right outside there is a replica of Michelangelo's David that is so gorgeous, it is so sad that it is surrounded by a very tall maze. There were some considerations regarding the nudity of the statue, it was even covered with a toga once... Oh well, if you don't get to go to... More

My husband and I enjoyed our hour's visit to this attraction. There is enough unusual material to make the $16.00 ticket price for the two of us well worth while. They were offering a Florida Rsident ticket cost .

Some of the exhibits were interesting, but many were not. My young son found some if it a bit freaky and scary . If you do go , buy your tickets online it is cheaper than paying at the gate.

There are so many things to see and engage in. Definitely worth a visit. I would plan to have at least 1.5- 2 hours time on your hands to take your time and go through the whole thing to feel like you've gotten your money's worth. Very fun and interesting.

This place is just awesome! There is no other way to describe it! It's just absolutely amazing!!!!! However, as I awfully discovered, there is a black-light deal at the end of the self-guided tour and if you use face-cream moisturizers, it really shows up in that area and you look like a clown to everyone around you.
