When it comes to the business of the odd, record-breaking, and shocking, Ripley's Believe It or Not is the master!  This popular attraction franchise is one of the most well-known names in entertainment. It was founded by none other than Robert Ripley, eccentric lover of everything bizarre and unbelievable.

You can visit over 95 total attractions through the Ripley Entertainment company, the entire franchise seeing over 13 million guests worldwide. Ripley's Believe It or Not Museums, sometimes called Ripley’s Odditoriums, are the main focal point of Ripley's franchise. There are 33 locations total across North America, and this isn't counting the additional Ripley's attractions such as the aquariums, ghost tours, mirror mazes or other entertainment attractions.

The odditoriums are filled with ‘strange, shocking, and beautiful’ collections typically housed in visually unusual or intriguing buildings. Enjoy hands-on illusions and displays (between 400 and 700 exhibits total depending on the specific location) as you walk through exotically themed galleries in what Robert Ripley would consider a truly magical wonderland! See things such as shrunken heads, the world's tallest man, two-headed calves, man-eating sharks, and so much more throughout each location!
