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!

I went here with my boyfriend and I thought it was gonna be a nice experience. Honestly it wasn't all that good. I think this is mainly for kids. You go in, your read a whole bunch of things that you may or may not remember when you get out the place. I just got bored and couldn't wait to... More

I enjoyed this, its not a lot, and if you are excited to get to the next, you will be done way to quickly. Take your time, check out the exhibits, read everything. Touch what you can touch and take fun pictures, and this way you will really feel like it was worth both your time and money!

In a city where everything's over-priced, this was good value for money. We spent well over and hour inside the museum - there's a lot to see. We were traveling with a 5 year-old who loved it. If you're looking for an activity and are going to do some of the kitschy stuff on Clifton Hill, I'd recommend this one.

Visited for new years. Got the bundle ticket with admission to Ripley and then to the 4d theatre. Took over 2 hours to make through. Lots of interactive exhibits to visit and lots of interesting facts to read about. Very enjoyable something that didn't get tiring or old after 30 minutes like other attractions on Clifton Hill.

I've been to other facilities in other cities and this one is not as big and has many of the same displays bu I is worth the money in a tourist area where everything is so expensive. I recommend this over Frankenstein and many of the other "museum"-style attractions.

Great updates made here. Everything worked and kids enjoyed using their phones to search for exhibits and loved the hands on activities. Easily could spend close to 2 hours here if you stop and enjoy everything. Staff was also great and friendly.
