Ripley’s Believe It or Not is home to a plethora of amazing oddities. From camel bone sculptures to genuine shrunken heads to a creepy skull and bones drum kit, this unique family attraction is sure to delight the whole family. Kids will especially love getting a personal photo with The Lizard Man and marveling at the Peel Car, the world’s smallest production vehicle. Robert Ripley, a world traveler and avid collector of bizarre souvenirs, was the inspiration for the eponymous museum, and a frequent guest in St. Augustine. After his death in 1949, his collection formed the foundation of what is today one of the city’s most thrilling attractions. Housed in the historic former Castle Warden Inn, Ripley’s Believe It or Not is also said to be haunted by several restless spirits! To get the most of this spine-tingling site, families can jump aboard the nightly Ghost Train Adventure Tour. For something a little less creepy, visitors young and old can opt for the lively “Pirates, Predators of the Sea” exhibit or enjoy a sightseeing tour on the famous Red Trains, which stop off at 20 of the city’s most famous attractions.
