Located in the heart of New York’s Time Square, the world-famous Ripley’s Believe It or Not is a one-of-its-kind museum. Created by Robert Ripley, a cartoonist, an explorer and a collector of the bizarre, the museum is spread over twenty themed galleries, spanning two floors. The majority of the exhibits in all of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! odditoriums are based on the collections of oddities collected by Robert Ripley himself throughout his world travels.
Whether examining a six-legged cow, a lock of Elvis' hair, 24 shrunken heads, a section of the Berlin wall, or a life-size albino giraffe, the amazing Ripley's Believe It or Not collection proves that fact is indeed stranger than fiction!
A great day out for the entire family.
