Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum

The Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum is located just a half block from Grauman's Chinese Theatre and across the street from the Kodak Theater. Visitors to the area visiting the Hollywood Walk of Fame can enjoy a trip through the museum of unusual oddities and bizarre exhibits. The Ripley's company has been in business for nearly a century, bringing the unusual and strange to the world. Ripley's guarantees all of the oddities at their museums are proven real, but a few have been debunked. Legend has it, if you write to Ripley's or question one of the museum's exhibits, you will receive a post card stating "Believe it or not!" Ripley's was founded by Robert LeRoy Ripley, a man fascinated with the bizarre and unusual. Today, the collection includes 20,000 photos, 100,000 cartoon panels and 30,000 artifacts. The Los Angeles museum features two floors filled with eleven galleries. There are nearly 300 exhibits, all collected by Ripley. In addition to the bizarre items on display, visitors will also see Elvis and John Wayne exhibits. There is a theatre in the museum and several interactive opportunities. Group discounts are available for the wedding for groups of nine or more and the museum is a poplar destination for tours, camp outings and birthday parties.
