Discover the weird and the fantastic at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! See the museum of the bizarre that commemorates the life’s work of cartoonist, reporter, explorer and showman Robert Ripley.
When Ripley first displayed his collection to the public at the Chicago World's Fair in 1933, it was labeled Ripley’s Odditorium and attracted over two million visitors during the run of the fair. In an apparent promotional gimmick, beds were provided in the Odditorium for people who "fainted" daily. Now, there are over 32 Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditoriums around the world.
