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!

There are lots of interactive displays. The animatronic Robert Wadlow (world's tallest man) really puts his size into perspective in a way that pictures cannot. Seeing the real-life items that we have read about in the Ripley's books brought to life the stories my kids have read about. My favorite parts were the section of the Berlin Wall on display...

Maybe kids would be more enthusiastic about it. I would not recommend it to my friends. Not what I expected.

You can spend awhile in here if you read all the mind blowing discoveries Mr. Ripley has come in contact. Replicas help aid the eyes with what is being read. We packaged this with the 4D Movie Ride and Louis Toussad's Museum.

We had two grandparents (late 50s), two parents (37 and 40), and two kids (8 and 11). There were neat things in there for everyone. I doubt my parents would have enjoyed it alone but with the grands it was fun. Near the end was a room just about Niagara Falls facts, daredevils, etc. That was cool since we were... More
