Imagine an elephant with two trunks, or a fellow 9 feet tall, the tallest man in the world. You don’t need to imagine it. In Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum in Time Square, Manhattan, you can see and experience over 500 exhibits in over 18,000 square feet of interactive space spanning two floors.

Robert L. Ripley (1890-1949) was a cartoonist, reporter and adventurer. He travelled around the world and traversed 201 countries in 35 years. In each place he sought out the odd, unusual and unexplained. He became famous for the phrase “Believe It or Not”. He acquired lots of rare and unusual artifacts from around the world.

He used all the unusual things he came across as topics for his cartoons. The cartoons were really popular and were released as a book which became a fast bestseller. His success led to radio and television shows and later exhibits at the World Fair.

Interest in these unusual facts and artifacts still continues today. Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum is fascinating. There are displays of the fattest person, tallest person, a scene using thousands of postage stamps, the black hole which really makes you feel like the ground beneath you vanished. There are many amazing photo opportunities throughout the Museum such as having your face in a pickling jar or tightrope walking over Manhattan.

At Ripley’s Believe It or Not you’ll be blown away with all the unusual, real life exhibits displayed.
