Ever since 1918, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has brought the public the best in weird, scary, and otherwise unique artifacts and information from around the world. San Antonio’s Ripley’s location is no different with a three floor Odditorium covering 18,000 square feet, 18 themed galleries, and over 500 exhibits. Open 365 days a year, Ripley’s is a great attraction for groups of all ages.
Shrunken heads, a 19th century vampire killing kit, two-headed animals, the world’s largest tire, and 3,500 pounds of the Berlin Wall fill the many exhibits of this crazy museum. They even have the car Lee Harvey Oswald was driving the day he assassinated President Kennedy! The Odditorium is a tribute to the collection Robert Ripley started in the early 20th century who applauded the strange, the wild, and the unusual truths of the world that just sound insane. So it’s up to you to answer the question: Do you believe it or not?
Also in the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! complex is the Louis Tussaud’s WaxWorks, a wax museum with over 200 figures in themed settings, and the 4D Moving Theater. Take a picture with your favorite celebrities and historical figures in themed sections including Hollywood, Passion of the Christ, Heroes of the Lone Star, US History, Horror, and more. See one of two films at the interactive, multi-sensory theater that moves! There’s no better way to experience a movie.
