Description

from Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium
Considered the most unusual building in Branson, the 12,000 sq. foot Ripley's Odditorium is everything it's cracked up to be! Having recently gone through an extensive renovation, we have crammed as much fun into one building as is possible. There are over 400 "unbelievable" artifacts, jaw-dropping oddities, world records, amazing illusions, pranks of nature, cool inter-actives and awesome works of art.

Just a few of the newest additions include a full-size stagecoach made from 1.5 million toothpicks and a pair of horses made from welded horseshoes. Also, there are African fantasy coffins, a picture of Jesus on the cross made from burnt toast, a laser shooting gallery and you can't miss the wacky "spinning vortex" tunnel. With all that and more, it's sensational FUN for the entire family!

"Interesting museum for the family"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 18, 2018 NEW
This is a great place for children (especially of reading age and above) and adults to see some interesting and odd collections from around the globe. We spent two hours exploring and learning on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Rainy days in Branson are notorious for making indoor activities like this crowded. We spent about 20 minutes in line to buy tickets, but after the turnstile the crowd thinned out as we followed the path of exhibits. My 12 yr old daughter's review: "I give this a 5 [out of 5 rating]. It was family friendly, and it's way better than the RBION in Times Square [New York] because it's much bigger and has way more to see." My 8 yr old daughter's review: "I give this a 5 [out of 5 rating] because it's way cool to see weird and interesting things and hobbies."

We took my 5 and 12 year old nieces. The older one loved it. The younger one was freaked out by a few of the displays/activities. This one is smaller than some others, but it was a good way to kill a few hours on a hot day. Handicap access is a little difficult in some parts, be we managed.

"Better than expected"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 15, 2018 NEW
I don't generally like Ripley's because I find them boring even though my kids love them. But this had a good mix of interesting things to do/look at. My absolute favorite, probably because it wasn't expected, was the musical stairs. Sorry if I ruined the surprise! The outdoor exhibits are awesome and fun, so if you don't pay to go in you can still get great photo ops!

This is a great attraction on a rainy day or to beat the heat. Many unique and interesting things to see, and interact with. My favorite was the vortex. My adult age children enjoyed it as well. Free parking and close to many other attractions. Plan on about 90 minutes for this attraction.
