More than 500 weird and wild artifacts, plenty of interactive exhibits and 20 themed galleries make a visit to this one-of-a-kind museum a real New York experience. From a two-headed calf to a pickled tourist head and an albino giraffe, a visit to Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Times Square is guaranteed to shock and amaze.
In addition to exploring the galleries filled with everything strange, grotesque and truly unique, travelers can also catch sword swallowers and cheese carvers in regularly scheduled (and incredibly wacky) sideshow performances at this quirky museum.
Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Times Square is located at 234 W. 42nd St. and is accessible via the A and C train to 42nd Street. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. until 1 a.m. with closures at 11 p.m. Monday through Wednesday in the winter.
