Ripley's Believe it or Not! Times Square Tickets

Ripley's museum houses an extensive collection of weird and wonderful artefacts from the four corners of the earth, some of which were collected by explorer and entrepreneur Robert Ripley himself. The museum's purpose is to entertain and amaze people with some of the strangest facts about world cultures, human lifestyle and bizarre artistic endeavour. Ripley's at Times Square also shines a light on special New York facts and oddities. At the World Trade Centre exhibit you'll get to see a 17ft scale model of the World Trade Centre complex, made out of 470,000 matchsticks!

To experience the full delights of Ripley's Times Square you'll have to pay them a visit in New York, but we can give you an idea of what wonders await.

Want to know just how short the 'Fastest Tour of New York' is? At Ripley's Times Square you can get an instant overview of the sights and sounds of the Big Apple by descending a multi-sensory sixteen step staircase. The experience, which takes you from the Bronx to Wall Street, was created by the renowned New York-based art collective Tats Cru.

To strut your moves on the big screen head to the 'Recollections' room, where guests can have their every shake and spin projected and mirrored by a dazzling florescent light show.

We mentioned earlier that at Ripley's Times Square you're welcome to shrink your head. How you ask? Simply have your picture taken at the special photo kiosk and shrivel your napper down to the size of a tangerine. You can then slap on a new hair style, bones and warpaint. Images can be emailed or texted straight to your phone for quick social media sharing.

In the Little Apple Gallery get your King Kong on and snap a picture of yourself climbing up the side of the Empire State Building.

Amidst the excitement of the special exhibits and activities Ripley's Times Square showcase their incredible artefact displays. See an elaborate jade model of a Chinese junk boat and the Ripley's Buddha Statue. There's also a taxidermy two-headed calf and an Albino Giraffe.
