Discounts for Ripley’s Believe It or Not in New York

If you are in the mood for the odd and unusual, check out the museum called Ripley’s Believe It or Not! at Times Square. More than 500 real artifacts, wildly fun interactive experiences, and 20 themed galleries of strange and fascinating things in this interactive museum. 

You’ll find rooms bursting with weird, wacky and unusual objects like the world’s largest collection of shrunken heads, a lock of Elvis’ hair, a section of the Berlin Wall and a two-headed calf. There is a room housing an authentic 16th-century ‘iron maiden’ torture device, a barnyard of two-headed taxidermy, the dizzying Black Hole and the challenging LaserRace – a maze of lasers you need to navigate without breaking a beam. There is something in here for everyone – though some younger children may find the iron-spiked torture devices or the Black Hole a little scary. But those features can easily be bypassed.  

While you are in Times Square, why not find out about 22 Things to Do in Times Square.  Venture out of Times Square using our extensive list of Things to Do in New York City with hundreds of activities perfect for those on a budget, families, and city explorers.
