Located in the heart of Niagara Falls on Clifton Hill since 1963, the always growing Ripley’s Believe it or Not! 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!

This is a good place to visit for adults as well as children. The figures are well done and very life-like. I am always amazed when I visit. It is interesting and I would recommend it to all the people I know.

Schlocky and lame but if you have under 7-11 year old boys, it could be a good pastime. There are coupons for this all over the place so don't pay full fare. If you go to this one, you won't have to go to another one ... in NYC, Smoky Mountains, etc.

I've been here quite a few times and it is quite dull. The most exciting part of this place is the triply bridge at the end! It would be more enjoyable if it weren't so outrageously priced!

My husband made me go to this place with him. Most of the information on display looks outdated. It feels very stuffy and dark inside. Not quite sure what the value is of all the stuff in there. I will definitely not go back and would not recommend it. There is much more interesting things to do and experiences to... More

We ventured to Clifton Hill for this attraction as my boy is huge into this stuff. He has all sorts of books and things on it. We grabbed the flyers and headed down just to find that the whole thing was fenced off, apparently being repaired or upgraded or replaced, who knows. No info on when it would open. They... More

There is so much to see! You go through it in order of the rooms, it's not too time consuming but it's a fun experience. Some parts may be odd or creepy but it is good for all ages!
