Where are we going today?
Have you ever come face to face with a spinning vortex tunnel, or seen an authentic vampire killing kit? Just head to Ripley's Believe It Or Not Orlando, and then you can answer and excitable YES to those questions!
Ripley's Believe It Or Not Orlando is a museum with a difference...it's filled with all the weird and wonderful oddities that Robert Ripley collected over all of his travels right around the glove.
And boy, did he see some strange things! In fact, the museum is 10,000 square feet of exhibits, artifacts, and themed galleries (and one sinkhole to boot!) all to take your imagination to some pretty awesome places!
The entire Ripley's museum will allow you to "explore the odd". The human and animal oddities will let kids meet the worlds tallest man (can you guess how tall he might have been!?), and check out some exotic primitive items, including mind boggling visual illustrations, authentic shrunken heads, cannibal skulls, and other pretty strange items!
Did you know that the Asmat was a brain-eating, head-hunting tribe that used the skulls of their enemies as pillows? (Pretty grim isn't it!)
Did you know that the Iron Maiden (whilst some may think it's just a cool rock band) was actually a torture device made from iron? (We'll save the gory details for you to enjoy once inside!)
Did you know that in 1945 a rooster lived without a head for 18 months? People would pay 25c to see this headless wonder!
See...we TOLD you that Ripley's Believe It Or Not was filled with strange artifacts and experiences from around the globe. You just have to see it all for yourselves!
Enjoy kids...the world is a very strange place!

All exhibits can be viewed and read between 1-2 hours. While there are a few interactive pieces throughout, the majority of your time you are viewing then reading and back again. Small kids may want to rush because the reading part will bore them. However the visual oddities will definitely warrant many photos—photography is allowed too! The exhibits are all organized into several themed walk-throughs where each exhibit is accompanied by a sign providing further explanation.

Decent place to kill off a few hours. Interesting exhibits and illusions throughout the museum. Admission is a little steep but discounts are easy to come by if you search online. You can easily spend 90 minutes inside.

The exhibits are all organized into several themed walk-throughs where each exhibit is accompanied by a sign providing further explanation. I’m not sure which figures are originals or replicas-- some are enclosed behind glass cases while others are open for touching. NEVER PAY FULL ADMISSION for this place even if you’re into reading and weirdness. It’s not worth paying more than $15/person just to view and read.
