Ripley's Believe It or Not! Key West Tours

Located on the famous Duval Street, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is one of the most unique attractions you’ll find in Key West, Florida. With over 10,000 square feet on the second floor of a historic Key West historical building, the over 500 exhibits will easily keep you busy for an entire day.
 
Ripley first displayed his odd collection at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, which was labeled Ripley’s Odditorium. The exhibit attracted over 2 million visitors, leading Ripley to take his show on the road. Today, there are franchised locations of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums all over the world.
 
The 500-plus exhibits in Key West are showcased in 13 galleries. Ripley collected the most unusual objects and collections he could find on his global travels to create the Odditoriums. Look for featured items like a shrunken head that once belonged to Ernest Hemingway, whose own typewriter and glasses are on display as well.
 
The Key West Odditorium exhibits include one featuring the world’s tallest man, Robert Wadlow, who was 8’11” tall at only 22 years old, a completely white buffalo (odds are one in ten million) and a prehistoric Mastodon skeleton.  Other interesting exhibits include an eight-foot statue of Cpt. Jack Sparrow made from recycled car parts and a landscape carved entirely from camel bone.
 
Don’t skip the WaxZone at Ripley’s Key West. Located on the first level in the lobby, guests can create a “wax hand.” Dip your own hand into wax, or hold hands with a loved one, and create a memento you can take home after your visit.

Practical Info

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is open 365 days a year, from 9am until 10pm. There is an admission fee and children under the age of four are free. Photos and video are allowed inside and the Odditorium is considered safe for young children.
