Description

from Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium
Celebrating 25 Years in Branson!
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!

"Way cool! More then I expected!"
January, 2019
We had a really good time here. Is suggest going at least once as there are lots of cool things to look at and do.we are going again someday when our kids are a little older and can appreciate everything. They are 1 and 3 so here in a few years it will be better. Not the greatest place to take a baby because strollers don't work(lots of stairs) despite that we had a really good time the giant light bright was there favorite part. Mine were the piano stairs. Way cool! Kinda steep price but one inside I felt that the money was worth it.

Tip: Don't bring a stroller. If your bringing a baby I'd consider wearing a wrap or baby carrier. Great for off season. There was hardly anyone there in January!

"what an interesting fun trip"
December, 2018
I LOVED watching Ripley's Believe it or Not on TV when I was a kid and I got to share the odd and mysterious finding with my family while on vacation and it was so much fun and so interesting. We loved it and the staff was so friendly and nice. Our only wish that was there were more!

Tip: the layout can be confusing if you have a stroller because you start out downstairs then have to go upstairs and finish the tour downstairs. but there is an elevator

"Not worth the money"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed March 17, 2019 NEW
We had 2 adults and 1 child and it was $78. We also had a 1.5 year old in a stroller that got free admission. It was pricey, in my opinion. The attractions weren't that great. Some of them (tattooed guy and girl mannequins) were kind of scary to my 4 year old. The instructions for getting to the top floor in elevator were vague. We saw an elevator, but didn't think it was the right one as instructions were misleading. Came out at gift shop. Guy in gift shop was very unhelpful. Guy at front hesitated letting us back in. Overall, very pricey for only a handful of interesting exhibits. Maybe for older kids it would be better? Definitely skip it if you have younger kids.

Very interesting things to see, but too pricey. Then lots of things throughout that nickel and dime you. We enjoyed it, but not something we would do again. Staff was friendly.

If you are looking for something to challenge your beliefs, this will do it. The kids love it and it's good entertainment for the adults. There is also a bit if history and science, which makes it worth the while.

"Average exhibits"

Reviewed February 14, 2019
Very interesting things to read, but there’s not much wow to this place. The layout was not the greatest, the displays were average, but kept my teenagers and me interested. Something to experience if you have an hour to spare and don’t mind spending the money for it.
