Called an “Odditorium” for good reason, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! has some rather unusual items on display. Robert Ripley first became famous in the early 1900’s with his popular comic strip that challenged his daily readers to question what they thought was real. He opened his first “Odditorium” at the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago and even had the area equipped with couches to accommodate those who fainted at the sight of his curiosities. Times have changed and fainting couches are no longer needed, but exploring the unusual, the curious, and the odd is still fascinating for many. Weird stuff at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! includes over 16 different galleries of artwork and sculptures, optical illusions, and interactive displays.
