Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Where seeing is Believing!

Have you visited The Best of Branson annual contest 2019 and 2020 gold winner for BEST INDOOR ATTRACTION? If not, you need to get to Branson and see what you are missing. 

Come check out their new renovations and their ever-changing collection of over 450 unique artifacts, amazing art, crazy illusions and wacky interactives. It is sure to be fun for the entire family. The building, commonly referred to as the “Cracked house”, is designed to show the effects from the New Madrid earthquake in 1812. This was the largest recorded quake in the U.S., made the Mississippi River flow backwards for 3 days and was felt as far away as Washington D.C. Inside you can enjoy the World’s largest roll of toilet paper, a shrunken head, Vampire killing kit and a portrait made from a cassette tape and many, many other fascinating items.

In 1918 Robert Ripley’s first Believe It or Not! cartoon was published, initially called “Champs and Chumps”, featuring a collection of sports oddities. In addition to publishing he conquered radio, television, movies and opened the first museum called an Odditorium at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1939. He traveled to over 200 countries over 40 years and was considered the modern Marco Polo and the real life Indiana Jones.

Come experience the amazing world of Robert Ripley, then ask yourself if you Believe it or Not!

Stay as long as you like on your self-guided tour. They are located at 3326 West 76 Country Blvd in Branson and are open daily at 10am, 365 days a year. For more information, call 417-337-5300 or check them out online at
