Inspirock Rating:
3.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
This location of Ripley's Believe It or Not is the first permanent exhibit of the uncommon Ripley's collection. The franchise, founded by Robert Ripley, began as a comic panel illustrating unusual facts. The company evolved into a chain of museums, starting with this one, a year after Ripley's death. Opened in 1950, the museum houses more than 800 exhibits of wacky and strange items, including some of Ripley's own original collection. Inside you'll find shrunken heads; a stuffed, six-legged cow; and a bone motorcycle. Bring your camera to capture photos of these and many more bizarrely fascinating displays.

  • I really don't want to pan a place that is a Landmark in St Augustine, but I just din't find anything of interest 
  • The only way I would suggest going here is if it is part of the red train tour tickets. I think you get cheaper entrance when you do a combo with the train tour. For adults, I found the museum somewha...  read more »
  • What an amazing place to visit while you're in St. Augustine! The history behind this place will blow your mind! I definitely recommend visiting and also checking out their Red Train tours and also their Ghost Train tours at night.
  • My 8 years old son loved it and so did I. It was my first time at Ripley's Believe it or Not. Lot of unusual and weird exhibits, we spent over 2 hours looking and wondering around. Incredible! It was a lot of fun! My son got his hand mold into wax! Best Souvenir gift Ever! Next time, I will take my son to the one in Orlando.
  • The first Ripley's Believe it or Not ever! You have to go just because of that. Plus, it's in the AC, it's something to entertain the kiddos for almost 2 hours and it's pretty interesting. It's not the best one we've been to, but it's price matches the experience. Solid value.
  • Amazing experience! The price is discounted if you order your tickets online before attending, we saved $6 ($3 per ticket). Would definitely recommend anyone visiting the area and looking for the least tourist-trap attractions to check this museum out.
  • I really enjoy the Ripleys experience but I'm very disappointed with the Veteran's discount. When my husband and I go to Dallas Ripleys we get all attractions for the price of one for everyone, him, myself and two children. Here only my husband, (vet) received $3 off price of single attraction and nobody else was discounted. Internet tickets have a better deal, we specifically waited to get tickets on site because we're used to a better deal. Very disappointed Ripleys in the inconsistency between locations. Also the lady behind the desk today was rather rude and looked at my husbands VA card and license with veterans status on it as if it was some hand written note. Veterans deserve the same respect as our active duty.
