Located in the heart of Niagara Falls on Clifton Hill since 1963, the always growing Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum still holds on to the reputation as Niagara’s best museum. Authentic shrunken heads, the world’s rarest egg and two-headed animals are only the beginning here. Housing an impressive collection of the odd, strange and unbelievable from around the world, the museum showcases over 700 mind boggling exhibits, oddities, curiosities and illusions throughout their extraordinarily themed galleries. Several videos and displays allow for an interactive experience leaving you to decide whether you believe it or not!Take a stroll through what is perhaps the most humorous of cemeteries, containing various gravestones engravings that will make you giggle with disbelief. Among the museum’s strange and unbelievable artifacts is the Niagara Theatre. It is the only one of its kind in Niagara Falls! Guests are invited to sit down, relax and get blown away by the museum’s film showcasing those daredevils brave enough to face the wrath of the falling water, and those who accidentally took a trip over the falls. Plenty of photo-ops are also scattered around the museum from an 18th Century Spanish Public Humiliation Stock to the world’s tallest man’s Chippendale Chair. Kids of all ages (as well as adults!) love to engage themselves in Ripley’s Wacky Explorative Room where they are challenged with various curiosities and interactive displays such as the very popular shadow wall.Spend anywhere from an hour to an entire day exploring the first class entertainment that Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum has to offer. For years, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum has shocked and amazed tourists from all over the world as well as residents from the Niagara Region. No matter the reason for your visit to Niagara Falls, Ripley’s Believe It or Not should be a “must see” on your itinerary!

This is a typical Ripley's, combining the weird and the wonderful, the wacky and the normal. A good insight into the falls and people who had gone over in a barrel mixed with the heaviest man, tallest man, the use of lighting and shadows etc, definitely one to visit

My Wife & I took 2 of our Grandson's to Ripley's this past weekend for their 1st visit. They enjoyed most of the oddities but were a little freaked out with some of them. They really enjoyed the hands-on exhibits the most.

Great value and fun for the whole family. Visited with a 7 and 14 year old and we all really enjoyed it. It was nearly an hour of entertainment for us which surprised me to be honest. I would highly recommend it.

Family of 5 ages 4-15 very cool and time consuming. We could have walked through two three times to take it all in. A lot of interactive exhibits and a lot to Read. Kids really enjoyed it. Very colorful. I wish I brought change to use some of the coin operated things.

We were very excited to see the New and Improve Ripleys. They have done quite a few renovations and added some new exhibits. Quite a bit of interactive displays, but it was missing some of the fun displays from the old museum. ( like the money filled Buddah). My 6 year old nephew enjoyed that he was allowed to touch...
