A trip inside Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum in Times Square is an experience unlike any other. First of all, it’s the largest Ripley's museum attraction in North America, featuring over 500 unusual artifacts from around the world. There are 20 themed galleries with eccentric art and sculptures, one of which features used car parts — see a Captain America made from scrap metal. There are also a variety of extraordinary animals, like a two-headed goat, on display in the courtyard.
It’s weird and it’s wild.
For anyone who wants to surround themselves with the unusual, the unexpected and the unbelievable, this is the place. How about a World Trade Center made from almost half a million matchsticks? George Washington’s hair is here. His hair. And one of Babe Ruth’s uniforms. Cooperstown has nothing on this Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum.
Interactive exhibits are everywhere. The Recollections Room projects visitors’ dance moves into a rainbow of color. Then cross through a fantastic vortex that warps time and space in a spinning tunnel.
Ripley’s Times Square offers guests an unforgettable experience that can only be found in New York City. Exploring the entire museum will take close to two hours.
On the way out, stop at Ripley's Odd Shop — the perfect place to find something for everyone, like Believe It or Not T-shirts, strange collectibles, unusual jewelry, crazy candy, gadgets and toys that will ignite the imagination.
