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!

My Dad and I went here, we had a lot of fun. The exhibits were cool and it is definitely worth the money. We will definitely be back sometime.

Not to bad probably, better for a young family. Some cool stuff at the start but not so much in the second half.

2 adults and 1 child was $50 WITH a coupon and what a waste of time and money. You walk around and read the display and a few displays ask for tokens (yes you can buy tokens). Buy the book if you are that interested. Typical Niagara Falls tourist trap.

My big girl dream visit number one. She has read the book times. As we tour, she was rigorously explaining us the stories behind the exhibits. And they also got something not on the book and kept my girl attention on (Phew...) Stuff at the show was mostly identical to that at other Ripley's I visited. Some are new, or... More

Attended the museum and 4D theatre for a $30 value. The 4D theatre was a waste of time and money I wouldn't pay 5 cents for the ride. The museum was a good time and I recommend going. Small children may get bored in some of the rooms. There are interactive activities for the kids.

There were a couple of interesting things to see but not worth the $20 per person (That's with a coupon). My kids are 13&14 years old and they thought it was just okay. I don't mind spending the money if it is worth it but I would not return.
