  • The museum includes oddities that Robert Ripley himself owned and you’ll see wax statues of fascinating people who told their incredible stories to Ripley

Description

Almost 100 years ago, world-traveler and renowned eccentric, Robert Ripley, began bringing the world’s mysteries, weird phenomena and near-incredible facts to the masses. His legacy endures and you and your family can take a break from the mundane realities of life by stepping into Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! in Times Square.

Bizarre. Weird. Odd. And… true. Ripley was perhaps the only showman who was also very honest. He employed a multi-lingual sidekick (Norbert Pearlroth, who also became famous) who was dedicated to checking facts and ferreting out the truth in 10 languages! So, when you do step into Ripley’s New York leave all your skepticism aside and allow your mind to just wonder.

The Mexican Vampire Woman. Sounds interesting right? How about albino giraffes, shrunken heads or a vampire killing kit from the 19th century. This is firmly Ripley territory and at this Times Square fixture (it’s been entertaining people since 1939) they have over 500 rare artifacts and 20 themed galleries.

Your jaw will drop – or if you’re harder to impress, your mind will boggle. You’ll also find some oddities that belonged to Ripley himself and these old favorites are complemented by some of the people who told their fantastic stories to Ripley. You’ll see them in wax form!

There are interactive attractions too. Feel like a giant as you enter Little Apple - A New York Experience and get to see a miniature version of the Big Apple (complete with miniature Empire State Building) or make your way through a maze as you dodge green lasers in LaseRace.

And perhaps one of the great pleasures of Ripley’s is the amazing photo opportunities it provides. That and the fact that it really is a family occasion. Kids will find it fascinating, parents will remember the old TV shows and gramps will probably recall the books!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT: In 1929 Ripley surprised America by correctly pointing out it lacked a national anthem. Congress quickly got its act together and passed a law officially adopting The Star-Spangled Banner as the official anthem.
