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!

If you have seen the show on TV then you know what to expect... strange facts and circumstances depicted with exhibits. Definitely enough here to keep anyone of any age occupied for a couple of hours.

This is just another building in the chain of Ripley's. It has a lot of the same things as other Ripley's and is not worth the price that is charged. The entire Museum is on one floor and is not very big. Typical for these museums I guess. There are a few new things to see but all in all,... More

If you have been to another Ripley's then it's pretty similar. It did have items that were specific to the Niagra Falls area. It was just ok.

It might be okay for little kids, but not for teenagers and adults. A lot of the information may be interesting, but some of it looks like you don't believe it is real.

This is a typical Ripley's showing and isn't bad for a quick thing to do. Only thing is that probably 15% of the exhibits were not working!!

My grandson loves these types of museums so we went as a group. There were plenty of different types of oddities for most interests and quite a few hands on activities for the kids. All in all a good family friendly place.

Pretty interesting and lots of fun activities to do and take part in. Keeps the kids amused for hours! I did think however, that some activities and rooms were a little scary for the younger ones.

Had never been to a Ripley's before but was stuck in Niagara Falls on a rainy day. Actually didn't mind it. Was a fun way to spend a few hours. I used to think it would be full of silliness like a goat head on an elephant body or some such nonsense, but there were lots of interesting things to... More

It is what you expect; think calling this collection of oddities a "museum" is a stretch but it is great fun. Best part we thought was that many of the exhibits and stuff were hands on and oriented toward kids. Good for 1 - 2 hours; will not need any longer to complete.
