An adventure through the remarkable realms of scientific discoveries, The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! includes real artifacts, experiments, touchable specimens, along with computer interactive and multimedia experiences. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about some of the most extreme animals that have ever lived, dive into the complexities of human biology and marvel at the seemingly impossible collection of remarkable objects that Mr. Ripley collected as he travelled the world.

The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! welcomes visitors to explore the wonders of science and nature through themed zones, including:

Extreme Biology: Feel dwarfed by some of the world’s largest organisms and invaded by some of the smallest—discover the science behind our planet’s most extreme biology.

The Wonderful World of Ripley: Discover the extraordinary world of Mr Robert Ripley, an adventurer who travelled the world collecting artifacts and stories from the remarkable people and places he encountered.

Weird World—Past and Present: From geologic formations such as gigantic mineral crystals, to exploding killer lakes, uncover the scientific explanation behind every wonder of the natural world.

Cultural Practices: Investigate extraordinary body modification techniques practiced by cultures around the world and how these aesthetic changes affect the functioning of the human body.

Gallery of the Unexpected: Explore objects that represent Mr. Ripley’s legacy of inspiring people to create unique art and collect unusual things.

Perceptions and Illusions: Learn how illusions exploit the way our brains process sensory information to turn them into images or sounds we can comprehend, impacting how we perceive the world around us.
