RIPLEYS BELIEVE IT OR NOT!:  DISCOUNT SECRETS AND TIPS


Ripleys Believe It Or Not! is referred to as an “Odditorium.” This is a true statement! And, what fun! As if the streets of New York City are not filled with enough strange and wonderful
things to gawk at, here’s a museum that will present you with an even wider range of Unbelievable, bizarre and outlandish things!

For over 40 years, Robert Ripley, for whom the museum is named, traveled the world collecting the unbelievable, the inexplicable and the one-of-a-kind! Well, he found them! There are over twenty galleries of items showcased on two floors. The facts are presented via video, archival and interactive exhibits. What will you see? How about a six-legged cow, a lock of Elvis' hair, 24 shrunken heads, a section of the Berlin wall, or a life-size albino giraffe! The best part is that this museum is suitable for all ages! It’s really a lot of fun and I highly recommend it!

MY SPECIAL TIPS

  • Bring your camera and video camera for a slew of really fun photo opportunities. Yes, you can purchase photos there, but obviously they are a lot more expensive than your own!
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
  • Save some money for the gift ship—it’s a hoot.
