FAQ

What is Ripley’s, anyway?

Built on the foundation of a daily newspaper cartoon that began in 1918, Ripley’s is inspired by stories of people and places that are incredibly hard to believe, but undeniably true! The basis of our exhibit collection comes from the personal findings and souvenirs of famed world-traveler Robert Ripley and has since grown to include more than 35,000 pieces, which can be seen in our locations around the world today! Learn more here.

What can I find inside?

Our amazing 2,000-square-meter Odditorium is filled with over 500 amazing exhibits and interactives—guaranteed to amaze guests of all ages. View a section of the Berlin Wall, see a genuine human shrunken head, experience virtual reality, and so much more!

How long does it take to tour the Odditorium?

Our self-guided attraction allows guests to fully enjoy Amsterdam’s most bizarre attraction at their own pace. We recommend one to two hours to enjoy everything, but you can take as long as you’d like!

Is the Odditorium wheelchair accessible?

Yes, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is fully accessible for wheelchairs. If you use a mobility scooter it might be impossible to pass through the museum during busy times, so we recommend that you come during the quieter hours in the morning or evening, and preferably outside school holidays.

Are there discounted tickets for children?

Yes, we have discounted tickets for children aged 5-15. Children 0-4 enter for free with a paying adult.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Do you offer refunds?
