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!

My husband and I went to Niagara Falls, Ontario for our honeymoon and Rippley's Odditorium was the first attraction we visited. Ripley's is full of fun facts, fiction, and things to look at and interact with. I recommend getting the bundle for more than one Ripley's attraction. We got the 3 ticket deal for the Ripley's Believe it or Not... More

I've been to several Ripley's museums before and this one had a lot more interactive displays that my kids (3 & 5 y/o) really enjoyed. Not only did they get to see curiosities from around the world, but some of the exhibits were also pretty informative. I didn't think we'd spend more than 1-2 hrs, but the boys were entertained,...

If you are looking to kill time in Niagara, this is a good place to start. Winding hallways with lots of artifacts and things to touch and little things to play with. A bunch of things requiring extra $$$ to play. Downside, entrance fee is very pricey, not sure how people can afford to go in with a family of... More

My kids love their Ripley's books, so this was on their list to see, and it did not disappoint! Our kids range from 8-2 years old, and this place was great for all of them (and us adults!). Lots of interactive displays for little hands, and fascinating information for older brains. A warning though, don't go near the Vortex Tunnel... More

A bunch of cool/weird displays. Some interactive things as well. Depending on how protective you are it may not be appropriate for small children. Overall, friendly staff, interesting exhibits and a fun time.

We always enjoy the Ripley's museums, and this one was no different. We spent three hours here and it was a lot of fun. From the history of Niagara Falls, to the crazy things people have tried, to the new interactive stuff....there is something for everyone!

The kids loved it, especially when they can experience first hand some of the items in there. But many of it were pictures and most adults would have seen or be aware of the exhibits already. Take your time. Kids will definitely love it
