Two floors filled with over 500+ new and strange artifacts and exhibits will keep you entertained for hours.

The unique attractions at Ripley’s are designed to test your sense of space and gravity. Challenge your senses as you walk through The Spinning Vortex- a tunnel of swirling lights all around you creates a feeling of losing your balance and the LaseRace gives you the opportunity to test your agility in a high-intensity simulation of a web of laser beams. Walk through 20 themed galleries to discover unusual and fascinating artifacts. Gaze up at the white face of an albino giraffe or into the shriveled face of South American shrunken heads. Peer at a decorated, engraved Tibetan skull and be fascinated at the myriad heads on display. Take a photo of yourself as half a person or put your head in a glass dome and get covered in giant roaches!

The interactive nature of the museum will leave you excited with a sense of fun and wonder at the collection of unlikely relics!

Next, head on over to National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey – Times Square’s latest attraction - to satisfy your deep-sea curiosity. This first-of-its kind immersive entertainment experience utilizes cutting-edge technology to transport guests on an incredible underwater journey. Visitors journey across the Pacific Ocean with family and friends, all the way from Australia to California, to interact with and encounter the ocean’s greatest wonders and magnificent creatures.

Your undersea journey begins in the shallow seagrasses off the Solomon Islands. Get fascinated by plankton, jellyfish and bioluminescent corals that surround you in the Reef Room. Take in the sounds and sights of creatures that dwell in the darkness of the deep ocean as you step in to profound darkness in the Deep Sea room. Learn more about Humboldt squids as you find yourself in the middle of a ferocious squid battle. Walk through a kelp forest past the Hawaiian Islands and off to the California coast. Here, come face to face with playful sea-lions following you as you wander around. Next, encounter humpback whales, dolphins, great white sharks, sting rays and other aquatic creatures in a two-story high theater!

The interactive nature of the museum will leave you excited with a sense of fun and wonder at all the creatures that call the Pacific seabed home!

Enhance Your Sense of Wonder at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! in Times Square

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).

Interactive Experiences

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!
