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!

"Great family event, well worth the price"
August, 2016
We did this activity on a day where we had sat around the cabin most of the day due to rain and needed to get out and expend some energy. I have four kids (18, 16,13, 10) and all were interested and had a good time. I like the self paced exploration and the fact that you can spend as long as you want here with no one rushing you through. The website says about an hour and a half, but we took longer because there was so much to do and look at.

"Awesome place to visit!"
July, 2016
The museum is very kid friendly and has some fun for adults as well. The fire alarm was pulled by a child and we couldn't find our 3 year old since everyone was heading for the exits and the staff was right on top of it and had him found and brought to us in less than 5 minutes.

If you enjoy Riupley's, you will bove the Ripley's Believe It or Not in Branson. It has so much interesting information that it took us several hours to see it all. Our grandson was enthralled and couldn't stop talking about some of the things he learned.

Reviewed May 09, 2018 NEW
I have been in several Ripley's across the country and they are all very similar. We got the pass as part of a duo tick with Ride the Ducks. Its worth visiting if you have never been to a Ripley's but if you have been to one previously, I would suggest seeing something else since you will be familiar with the place.

Always wanted to visit this place so I paid out the overpriced admission charge. I thought the hologram of Ripley sitting at his desk was pretty awesome.Also enjoyed the stagecoach built with matchsticks. The fake lady having her picture taken took me by surprise. Not so much her but the fake guy around the corner..Hilarious!
