They don't call it the "Odditorium" for nothing. Kids intrigued by the weird and wonky – and really, who isn't? – will love this place, as well as adults who enjoy the kitschy memories of the Jack Palance-hosted TV show old Ripley inspired. All kinds of weird, wonderful oddities populate this place. Some historic, some artistic, some even a little horrific – but it's all in good fun. Sure it's a little touristy, but you'll still see things you won't find elsewhere: Chippendale seats made for the super tall and super small, a car constructed from toothpicks, shrunken heads, dinosaur fossils, you name it. Even the exterior is odd; it appears to be falling into a Florida sinkhole!
Hours:Due to COVID-19, please check with the attraction for the most recent updates to their opening hours.
- Adult (13+) $16.99; Child (4-12) $10.99
- Family-Friendly Museums: "Check the website for Florida resident discounts and coupons before you go. Watch the freaky factor for the youngest among you. Some of the attractions are a little out there."
- Best for Family-Friendly Museums Because: Ripley's Believe It Or Not is a touristy institution. And an excellent choice for inclement weather or a break day from the theme parks.
