FL Florida Museums: There are museums all
over Orlando, all different types from art, to weird
and wonderful artefacts so something to interest or
amuse everyone. When people think of Orlando, the
last thing that comes to mind is museums, but Orlando
offers its own range of Museums and these are more
entertainment exhibitions and it is well worth going
to a few. They are presented in such a way that all
age groups will enjoy these outings.
Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum
This Museum includes weird and wonderful displays
but different to any other Ripley’s Museum you’ve
been in. Many of the exhibitions were collected by
Robert Ripley on his expeditions around the world.
Open every day from 9am to 1am it provides endless
hours of looking at the strangest things in the world.
The long admission hours mean you can spend as long
as you like going from spectacle to spectacle. It
can also provide a more peaceful few hours, maybe
in the evening after a hectic day spent at one of
the theme parks. Admission is about 20 dollars for
adults and 13 for children with free parking.
