Ripley’s Believe It Or Not – Orlando, FL

Disclosure: Admission was provided for my family.

Growing up one of my very favorite TV shows was Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! I can even remember my favorite episode, the one with the lizard man. He had tattooed his entire body with scales and even had his tongue cut in half to look more like a reptile. I was more excited than a kid in a candy store when I realized there was a Ripley’s Museum in Orlando and put it on my must see list right away. 12166859_10206869680054777_1326746345_nThe 10,000 square foot “Odditorium” delights right off the bat with the outside experience.

  1. Ripley’s Believe it or Not! has always amazed me. I’d love to visit one of their museums someday. Looks like a fun place.

  2. I have always wanted to go here! I am such a fan of the whole concept. My dad even bought me one of their books as a present. When I was growing up, I loved watching the tv show that was hosted by actor Jack Palance and his daughter Holly. I always found him to a little bit scary in a fun way! It would be so much fun to see all of these world-reknowned exhibits in person.
