Visitors to this palace of the preposterous will discover nineteen themed galleries on three floors housing more than 800 entertaining, interactive and absolutely bizarre exhibits, including some of world explorer and founder Robert Ripley’s original collection of far out and fabulous artifacts.
The wackiest of the wacky, wildest of the weird and scariest of the scary await visitors to the Odditorium, ready to trip active imaginations, test your terror-meter and kick that casual curiosity all the way to awestruck disbelief! Consider the previous owners of creepy shrunken heads, acquaint yourself with a dastardly car part pirate, imagine a day trip on a bone motorcycle and wish yourself small enough to take a spin on the world’s largest operational erector set Ferris Wheel. Ponder painstakingly crafted clothespin and matchstick sculptures, take a peek at a cannibal’s fork, consider where – and whether - you’d wear a newspaper or coffee filter dress and ogle outrageous animal oddities; discover why seeing everything in its perfect light makes a wide world of difference! Context is king at the Oldest City’s Ripley’s Believe it or Not Odditorium!
