Owner description: 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!

A far as these silly museums go-this was fun and entertaining and had neat stories involving Niagara Falls. We loved it.

“Okay....”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

There are quite a few interesting facts, tidbits of information. A lot to read about. A movie halfway through talks about people that have tried to go over the falls. It does need an update though - a bit worn and dated. Honestly - save your money.

“Bizarre”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Not sure that this attraction is really worth the cost.
Bizarre stuff but certainly interesting.
I think a visit here once is all you need in your life!

“Lots of interesting facts”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The museum is one of the better attractions on Clifton Hill. Though parts of it may need updating, it is still quite an interesting experience. Definitely pick this over the Guiness World Records Museum.

“Interesting”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

It was interesting to visit this, getting more information about the people who have gone over the falls and other interesting facts about the area, there was of course the usual things in the museum as well that would be in most of them, but the majority of it tried to focus about the falls.
