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!

"Family Fun"
Reviewed April, 2016
Great fun for family of all ages. Self paced and has plenty of things to see. Second time we have been. Lots to see!
Tip: There is a "Move Monsters" section that young kids might not need to go through, but they have a bypass.

Ripley is fun for all ages. Self paced tour that allows you to see all. Even though we took our time, we all realized we missed different things. The pictures allowed us to see them.

"Impressed!"
Reviewed July, 2015
We thought that this would be a way to spend an hour before going to Silver Dollar City. We spent at least 3. Everyone (ranging in ages from 7 to 76) really enjoyed Ripley's and we have some great photographs for the kids' photo albums.

We were planning on going there in the evening, but they had just changed from summer hours, and the old hours were still posted. Otherwise was a great experience. I would visit again.

Very pricey, but great place for the family to enjoy some oddities. My family's favorite part was at the end, where there was a tunnel going through spinning lights...very dizzying, but FUN!

I wouldn't call this place great. However, if your looking for something to do for a few 90 minutes or so, it is fun.

"Very interesting pieces"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 24, 2016 NEW

I wouldn't say that the whole tour was interesting but parts of it were. I've been to several Ripley's locations and this one was average. Neatest things were the giant roll of toilet paper, ball of twine, and many pieces made of tooth picks. It's a good way to spend 30 minutes to an hour. For the price, it needed to be bigger and have more inside. Staff was very nice and we even got to talk to the manager about how they got the twine and tp in there. (They actually had to put the twine in there before they built the building. The tp was squeezed in through a side door.)

This was a fun unexpected stop on our way home and boy are we sure glad we did! Super interesting! Could have spent another hour there. Teenage kids loved it. Friendly staff and great gift shop where we got a lot of our souvenir's. Gave us the online discount for admission as we did not have a coupon so it was nice that they tried to save us some money. I think for all five of us it was around $75
