An Adventurous Museum – Visit “Ripley’s Believe It or Not”

New York Times Square Museum

If you're in the Big Apple , then you definitely won't miss a visit to Times Square . Especially at night, this place is impressive with all its twinkling lights and lots of people and is just bubbling with New York energy. In Times Square and its side streets there is a wide range of bars , restaurants but also cultural offerings such as musicals on Broadway and a very special museum . It is “ Ripley's Believe It or Not ” (in German: “You Can Hardly Believe It”), an exhibition that takes place a total of 30 times around the world . Even if it seems very touristy at first and you might be looking for the typical New York experiences , this museum is definitely one of them. :) It's worth it for anyone who is open to dealing with unusual topics for one or two hours. You can expect exhibitions on very different topics such as natural phenomena , optical illusions , impressions from the animal kingdom and much more. The great thing is that you can try out and touch almost everything, making this museum fun for the whole family.

In total, the museum offers you over 500 exhibits spread across 20 different theme worlds . Visit this place as a family or perhaps as an interesting introduction to an adventurous night in New York .

Some visitors may judge one or two exhibitions very critically or even inappropriately, as some topics from the human world, such as genetic mutations, are also shown. Just try to be unbiased and in the end you will at least have learned about new facets of humanity.

Things you should definitely try or look at:

  • Tunnel of Light (also known as “black hole”)

  • Historical medical utensils

  • New York's only Laser Race

  • Optical illusions with which you can take funny photos
