Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

“Wacky, weird and overpriced.”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We wanted to see the wacky and weird which we did. The fact that it cost $42 for two adults and two kids is crazy. That total includes a coupon for $8 off by the way.. Everything is pricey in the area so we forked out the money. Some interesting exhibits and artifacts. Takes about 45 minutes to walk through if you read every sign.

“Great find”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

this was one of the highlights of my trip and for my kids who are into science,etc. I would recommend for ages 10+ though my 8 year old found much to enjoy - she just didn't slow down enough for the rest of us to read everything. I would just buy admission to this location, not the others, they weren't worth it.

“Worth it once...”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

13 year old son, wife, and myself went. Cost us 39.00 after using 2.00 off coupons you can find everywhere. When we first entered I had my doubts as to whether it was worth it but by the end I felt it was worth seeing it one time. With so many "tourist traps" in NF you really need to be informed. We ended up spending a good 75 minutes in there with a couple pretty cool surprises and all 3 of us exited satisfied with this attraction.
