I have been in Panama City Beach five years now and until Saturday I still had not entered the big ship that is Ripley’s Believe it or Not! In fact, I’d never been to any of them around the country. So, on Saturday, my husband and I decided to go check it out.
We got the combo passes, which gives you entry into the “odditorium” and also the 4D movie.
There was so much to see and do in the Odditorium. I had mistakenly thought that this was an attraction designed for families with children. And though there is much for children to enjoy, curious adults will also have fun exploring the exhibits.
Even before walking through the turnstiles, we were greeted by a huge, 24 karat gold coin plated limo.
Across from the limo is a matchstick replica of the Eiffel Tower.
Inside, we saw more incredible replicas and some items behind glass that appear to be authentic. From unusual animals with two heads to unusual humans of incredible heights, weights, and even extra legs.
There are artifacts from all over the world inside the Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Odditorium. You will see a piece of the Berlin wall, money from ancient China, a Tibetan drum made from a loved one’s skull, a model of a tribe woman from Chad, Africa, with plates inserted into her lips to protect her from raiders, effectively making her unattractive. There is so much to see inside of the museum that will interest all ages.
