About Ripleys Believe It or Not! Dallas Texas

Welcome to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium. Let’s look at what you can expect from your visit to this amazing attraction. You are going to have a great time here, but let’s start with the basics. What in the world is a Ripley’s Believe It or Not!? Are we a museum? A wax museum? A haunted house? No, all of these things and more. We have exhibits that you will be able to find in many museums, like our section on historical artifacts and art galleries. Some of our pieces you may find in wax museums, like Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum—but rather than being made out of wax, they are real relics and curiosities (like our full-size animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex). Finally, some of our exhibits might just cause nightmares: The Chamber of Chills exhibit features spooky attractions like scary livings statues that move when you least expect it! Don't worry though; there is nothing too frightening for children who don't like jump scares. Dallas-Streets

Robert Ripley

Robert Ripley was an American cartoonist, explorer and world traveler who founded the international entertainment enterprise that bears his name. He was born in Santa Rosa, California, on December 25, 1890. In 1909 he attended the San Francisco Art Association School of Design where he studied painting and design. Industry titans such as Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst hired him to draw cartoons for their publications. By 1918 Robert Ripley had become a well-known sports cartoonist who was especially popular with young male audiences for his humorous sports cartoons depicting the exploits of such popular baseball players as Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson. The “Believe It or Not” feature first appeared on December 19th, 1918 in The New York Globe. Are you traveling with a large group?
