Ripley's Believe It Or NotCurrently Closed
Situated inside Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, is the city’s very own Ripley’s Believe it or not! That’s right, the franchise famous around the world for dealing in everything strange, unusual and downright bizarre has a museum right in the heart of Blackpool’s biggest tourist attraction.
Spread across 2 floors and 8 thrilling galleries, the museum features oddities like a 2 headed calf, eerie shrunken heads and a portrait of Lady Diana made out of 2,500 pennies- and we’re only scratching the surface.
The Ripley’s Believe it or Not ‘Odditoriums’ have an eclectic mix of the most unusual artefacts from different countries and fields, both big and small. Some of the items on display will be intriguing to all, such as junk art masterpieces and the staircase with weird facts on every step. On the other hand, some of the displays are sure to make even the most lionhearted squirm- ever heard of the human candlestick?
Measure yourself up against life sized replicas of the tallest and largest human beings of all time.
They have a very good collection of wooden African tribal statues, which include strange models like the Ashanti execution statues and the equally odd fertility statue.
All in all, the Blackpool Ripley’s Believe it or not is a fun little place to hang out, and get your mind blown at the same time.
