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!

We had a blast doing this. I think my expectations were pretty low, but it was really well done. We spent about an hour and a half here and never got bored. Definitely worth it.

Different and weird artifacts. Had fun exploring through the museum.The vortex room was our favorite part. We walked through about 6 times each. I think it made us dizzy cause we couldn't figure out how to get out so we went back through the entrance.

We had a very nice time here. 2 adults and 2 teenagers, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Ripley's is full of interesting and odd exhibits and it was easy to spend a couple of hours exploring. Definitely recommend this for a visit.

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.
