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!

Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium Review
A tour of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Branson begins outside rather than inside. Parents and children alike marvel at the structure of the museum, built to show the effects of an unbelievable 8.0 earthquake that hit Missouri in 1812. It’s a great place to take memorable photographs!
The self-guided tours of the Branson museum can take as little or as long as you like. I toured for an hour, and still didn’t see it all! There are a lot of visual items that are great for children, such as the speaking hologram of Robert Ripley and the Mystery of the Vanishing Woman. I enjoyed the Quiz room, where unbelievable facts and interesting brain teasers create an interactive experience. The Tribal Room and Marine Room house artifacts like a genuine shrunken head from an Jivaro Tribe and unique aquatic oddities like the contents of a Shark’s stomach, which believe it or not, held everything but the kitchen sink, including a 50 pound anchor!
These amazing exhibits were fun, but several have moderate reading involved, which may be a bit distracting for young children. My personal favorite exhibit was the room of extraordinary people, where I could compare myself to both the world’s tallest man and world’s largest man and glimpse rare creatures like the Unicorn Man and Lighthouse man. The fun, however, doesn’t end until you travel through the barrel room where the movement isn’t real, but you’ll believe it is!
Notables: Allot yourself at least an hour to view the museum, as crowds can vary and there truly is a lot to take in. Be sure to bring your camera too, as Branson's Ripley’s Museum encourages guests to take photographs throughout the museum.
