Located in the heart of Times Square, this fascinating collection of more than 500 astonishing artifacts extends over two floors and more than 20 interactive galleries.
From a baseball uniform worn by Babe Ruth to the world’s largest collection of shrunken heads, you'll discover that art extends beyond oil paint to include automotive bumpers, spider webs, portraits depicted in gumballs and even a 17-foot (5.2 m) tall World Trade Center modeled in perfect scale assembled from more than 470,000 matchsticks! See an iron maiden, a medieval European torture device, one of only 11 that are available to be viewed by the public, George Washington's hair and more bizarre and weird items that must be seen to be believed.
Enjoy interactive exhibits like the Recollections room where you can check out your dance moves projected and repeated in a rainbow of florescent colors or contribute to Ripley’s prized collection of shrunken heads with your own at the new Amazonian Makeover exhibit. Send your friends pictures of your head dressed up with hair, bones and war paint.
On the weekends, you might just catch a glimpse of the freakish human sideshows performing under the marquee. Sword-swallowers, street magicians, you never know what you might see.
Featuring favorites from Ripley’s around the world and oddities found only here in New York City, experience the odd, the absurd, the weird – and all true.
