The enchanting Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square invites all visitors to engage with the mysterious and strange through a vast array of artifacts and exhibits. Originating with the work of columnist/anthropologist Robert Ripley who told stories of the oddities he collected throughout the world, this amazing museum in NYC offers sights unlike anything you will see in ordinary life. This unique attraction allows guests to peruse the museum as they please. Feel free to linger where you are most interested so you can get the most from the bizarre offerings of this special spot in the heart of Manhattan.
Over 500 Amazing Exhibits
Located in Times Square, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! showcases rare artifacts where visitors can get up-close and personal with unbelievable finds. The artifacts and treasures, many of which were curated by Mr. Robert Ripley himself, invite guests to explore the weird diversities of the world in which we live. You’ll see sculptures created from funky, unlikely materials such as used car parts and scrap metal. Then, view some authentically strange animals such as an albino giraffe and real and replicas of astounding curiosities from around the globe like the notorious shrunken heads of South America. Conquer your fear of insects as you let them crawl on your face (with a plastic dome between you and them, of course).
Home of inventive exhibits, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! gives visitors a chance to interact with the museum. This self-guided tour will captivate you as no other attraction or museum in NYC is able to do. For example, the Little Apple exhibit offers you a vista of the entire city at a glance with a miniature replica including all the sparkling lights of the real NYC. The Impossible LaseRace lets you challenge your friends to navigate a maze made of lasers without crossing any of the web of light beams. In the Spinning Vortex, your sense of gravity will be challenged. Hold on to the rail as you walk through the swirling 360 degree tunnel of twisting light!
