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!

So much to see and do at Ripleys, so plan on spending a few hours here. Lots of hands on things to do, nooks and cranies to explore and tons of fun facts on the walls of the different rooms.

The world of bizarre. Highlight was standing in front of a blue screen and being transposed onto the falls. Very cheesy and turned out to be our Engagement photo. No extra charge for this too. Worth going just for this but many other highlights and...More

Me and my husband went this past week, we didn't really like it, boring. We didn't have kids with us but kids might like it. But as a couple I personally wouldn't recommend. Spend money elsewhere.

Our kids (girls 10 & 12) loved this place. I am not a fan of the shrunken head stuff but the optical illusions stuff is really neat.

Perhaps I have been jaded by visiting too many Ripleys but this was nothing spectacular. A bit small and cramped.

A very fun and amusing experience for all ages. Located on Clifton Hill. Something cool to kill time but definitely would only go once.

Lots of places to sit and enjoy your food. Also the parks encourages people to spread a sheet on the grass and sit.

It should take around 1-2 hours to see everything. However, that really depends on how busy it is and how many exhibits you stop to read.
Is there a stop for Ripley's Believe It or Not! on the South Green line of WEGO and if so how close does the bus drop you to Ripley's entrance? I don't do well with long walks.
