You get to see things you never saw before. From shrunken heads to 8 ft man statues. Amazing structures made of animal bone to match sticks. Don't miss!

I didn't see one but the majority of the things to see are all on one level. I'm sure you could call the place and find out if they do have a wheel chair! 😀

Ripley's is wheelchair accessible from start to finish, but I don't Believe they provide wheelchairs. You can call them directly at (609) 347-2001 to find out. Hope this helped.
