Ripleys Believe It ot Not

Museum closed in September 2017 and will open at another location in London.

What can you explore at Ripley's in London

How about stopping the hand in water kept at the same temperature as when Titanic shone in 1912, Edward VIII's abdication speach, gloves that were worn by King Charles I, hairlock from Napoleon's hair.

The world's longest, smallest, blue, hardest and most fascinating people, a sculpture of Beatles made of chewing gum, candy portrait by Michael Jackson, a calf with two heads. Some of Ripley's most exotic treasures are fascinating cultural items. Rare objects like cannibal skulls and shrunk heads. Walk in the rotating virvel tunnel and do not miss the mirrors and a Mini Cooper covered with 1,000,000 Swarovski crystals.

History
How did Ripley's actually start. Before it became a chain of museums around the world, everything was started by American Robert Ripley who wrote articlas about strange and bizarre events. First, he published newspapers himself, but his first major article he received in 1918 in the New York Globe. In the beginning he only wrote about sports but then he expanded his writing with everything possible. In 1919 he always opened the title "Belive It or Not". In 1923, he moved to the New York Evening Post newspaper.

That same year, Ripley employed a man named "Norbert Pearlroth" as his researcher to find bizarre and strange things all over the world. Norbert came from Poland to the United States and could speak 14 languages fluently. He was perfect for the job to scan books and materials at the New York Public Library in several different languages. He worked for 52 years for Ripley's. Both Ripley and Norbert also traveled around the world to collect different artifacts and collections.

Eventually, it became radio, television shows and movies between the 1930s and 1950s. 1933 at the Chicago World Exhibition, Ripley showed up his collection for the first time. The first permanent exhibition was opened in Florida in 1950.
