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!

Boring, overpriced. Not even kitschy enough to be good. Not worth the time or money. Better to spend time looking at the falls.

We got these tickets as part of a combo with the 4D moving theatre and it was even better than this...in my opinion if you've been to one of these museums you've seen them all. This one particularly seemed to have more than its share of gross stuff for my taste...

It all my kids wanted to do. We were in this place for 4 hours!!!!! Didn't mind. It was 100' outside. The oddities & creepies are wonderful. The amazing and weird are fabulous! The plain oh my gosh is terrifying!! Nothing should scare little kids. There are fun things too. Be careful though. Someone may be watching you! There are... More

After a huge disappointment in the Guinness museum, I was hesitant to get ripped off again, but we went in anyways. This was a blast for my preteen daughter and I! We wandered and played and touched stuff and learned stuff and laughed. It really is fun. Cool stuff to see, cool stuff to do. Even while very crowded, we... More

While I can't believe I'm writing this review, I must admit this is probably the best Ripley's worldwide for kids.....they love the crazy stuff and most of what they have in this one is original and actually related to the falls. So go ahead and spend the money, your kids will enjoy it.

Great for kids or adults. Some very neat things to see and lots of interactive fun. Good for a couple of hours and of course, a gift shop!
