Museum still holds on to the reputation as Niagara’s best museum. Authentic shrunken heads, the world’s rarest egg and two-headed animals are only the beginning here. Housing an impressive collection of the odd, strange and unbelievable from around the world, the museum showcases over 700 mind boggling exhibits, oddities, curiosities and illusions throughout their extraordinarily themed galleries. Several videos and displays allow for an interactive experience leaving you to decide whether you believe it or not!Take a stroll through what is perhaps the most humorous of cemeteries, containing various gravestones engravings that will make you giggle with disbelief. Among the museum’s strange and unbelievable artifacts is the Niagara Theatre. It is the only one of its kind in Niagara Falls! Guests are invited to sit down, relax and get blown away by the museum’s film showcasing those daredevils brave enough to face the wrath of the falling water, and those who accidentally took a trip over the falls. Plenty of photo-ops are also scattered around the museum from an 18th Century Spanish Public Humiliation Stock to the world’s tallest man’s Chippendale Chair. Kids of all ages (as well as adults!) love to engage themselves in Ripley’s Wacky Explorative Room where they are challenged with various curiosities and interactive displays such as the very popular shadow wall.Spend anywhere from an hour to an entire day exploring the first class entertainment that Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum has to offer. For years, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum has shocked and amazed tourists from all over the world as well as residents from the Niagara Region. No matter the reason for your visit to Niagara Falls, Ripley’s Believe It or Not should be a “must see” on your itinerary! « less

We went there just for something to do. Even with the coupon, it cost the three of us about $45. Most of the place was just signs on the wall describing things and we got sick of reading everything. I'm not sure what we were expecting but it wasn't that. We read a fraction of the things posted and were... More

Went there with the whole family of 5 members (3 generations). It actually exceeded my expectation. Many fun things to look at and not as much wired stuff as I thought. The whole family liked it. Good in door strolling for sure.

I enjoyed this very much even though not much has changed since the last time I was there 8 years ago. Not for kids under 10 or so, just doesn't interest them.

I have been to Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum in Florida before. This one is very similar, but still fun to attend with interesting facts and videos of people going over the falls. I would recommend buying at least the additional wax museum ticket with this attraction.

We visited over July 4th and had a nice time. We bought discount tickets through our hotel but I do not think the museum is worth the value of a full priced ticket. My 9 and 7 year old had an okay time but this is not really a geared towards small kids. There are lots of interesting pieces to... More

There so much to do on Clifton Hill and it all costs money. My family (kids age 8 and 11) limited where we wanted to go ahead of time, and Ripley's Believe It or Not! made the list. It is all on one floor, but bigger than I expected. Some of it is a bit dated (many of the exhibits... More

I stopped here while out for night stroll with just the wife. We just went to the wax hand making. The lady who helped us answered all our questions and was great through the whole process. Prices were reasonable and it is a unique experience.
