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!

Ripley's is a tourist trap, but I'm a sucker for those. I've been several times throughout the years and I always stay sucked in!

Even the Adults had a great time. So you know its worth it. look online and purchase tickets in advance and you have up to year to use them. pull it up digitally from your phone. they let you takes pics and touch almost everything in the museum.

Just viewing and learning about things in our world that we might not otherwise see, is a great learning experience and a lot of fun. There are interactive activities and puzzles to figure out along the way. My favorite thing is the very last item that you walk through to leave the displays.

This is fun when you have a few hours to kill. It has a nice eclectic arrangement of items from all over the world. Neat facts and oddities on display. The best part by far is the vortex tunnel at the end....very trippy.

"Pretty cool attraction!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 16, 2018 NEW
Went with family including 4 teens. Has quite a few interesting things. Hands on place attraction - though not everything is interactive. Some of the illusions especially the ‘tunnel’ on the way out were very cool and my kids must have walked through it 20x- me too! If you’re in Branson, nothing is really inexpensive so why not do this? Good family fun.
