Description

Ripley's is called, 'a museum of adventure' and consists of 13 exciting galleries full of strange and exotic objects. It was the journalist, artist and adventurer Robert L. Ripley who collected the many strange objects in the museum during his lifetime. In the gallery called, 'lumber room' you can see the Button Girl, a doll covered with more than 7,000 buttons. In the gallery for 'quackery' you will find many strange gadgets and instruments that they used to believe could cure many diseases. Ripley also collected torture instruments from the middle ages and if you want to compete with the tallest man in the world (Robert Wadlow) or see how heavy the heaviest man in the world is, you can pay a visit to the gallery on, 'human peculiarities'. Ripley's is a fun filled experience for the whole family.
