Even Big Apple locals are amazed by the remarkable collection encompassing 500 odd, bizarre, and unimaginable artifacts on display throughout more than 20 galleries. New York is known for eccentrics—come see some of the city's strangest, most remarkable, and oddly talented individuals living at Ripley's Believe
It or Not! Times Square.|
Explore dozens of interactive exhibits that include true rarities of nature, science, humanity, and art, including a 2-headed calf and 1 of only 3 albino giraffes ever recorded. The world's largest collection of shrunken heads, a vampire killing kit from the 1840s, and a 3,197-pound (1,450-kg) meteorite are sure to captivate.
See art made from dryer lint, bubble gum, and even spider webs interspersed among exhibits featuring dinosaur eggs and a baseball uniform worn by Babe Ruth. The collection features a handful of favorites made popular by Ripley's over the years and an overwhelming number of items never before seen by the public. Complimentary live performances feature fire breathers, sword swallowers, contortionists, some people who hammer nails into their heads, and more.
The World Trade Center exhibit is a perfect scale model of the New York City building complex, assembled from more than 470,000 matchsticks. Standing 17 feet tall, the wooden wonder was created by artist Patrick Acton of Gladbrook, Iowa.
Set against a graffiti-like backdrop created by the renowned New York-based art collective Tats Cru, the “Fastest Tour of New York” takes place in just 16 steps down a staircase, immersing visitors in the real sounds of the City, from the Bronx to Wall Street.
Guests can add their heads to Ripley’s prized collection of shrunken heads with the new Amazonian Makeover exhibit. Simply take your picture at a special kiosk, shrink your head down to the size of a human fist, and accessorize with hair, bones, and war paint. Images can then be sent to a phone via text or personal email address for further sharing on social media channels.
The new “Recollections” room allows guests to see their dance moves projected and repeated in a rainbow of florescent colors on an over-sized screen.
