Shrunken Heads


With over 100 shrunken heads in the Ripley’s collection, they’re known as one of our most iconic exhibits. Robert Ripley collected his first shrunken head from a trader in Panama City in 1923, kickstarting the young adventurer’s curio of strange and unusual objects from around the world.

Animal Oddities

Two Headed Calf Head
Another Believe It or Not! icon, Robert Ripley was fascinated with animal oddities. He lovingly dubbed the creatures who were dealt strange fates by Mother Nature “Pranks of Nature.”

Become part of the Ripley’s Collection

One of the more unique exhibits in the Ripley’s collection is exactly what it sounds like! The Ripley’s hairball is 4-feet-tall and weighs over 125 pounds—plus, it’s growing!

Over 400 people have personally contributed a lock to this curious creation, and, at the Dallas Fan Expo, the Ripley’s Barber Shop will be open for you to join in on the furry fun! Not sure what you’re getting yourself into? Well, San Diego City Beat has an insight…
