Ripley’s Believe It Or Not is a historic venue and the perfect family-friendly space to celebrate this NYE. Conceived by Robert Leroy Ripley, a baseball player, cartoonist and an obsessed collector of weird and wonderful oddities, he opened his first Odditorium at Chicago’s World’s Fair in 1933. His collections of artifacts from his travels all over the world since then, have sparked cartoon strips, multiple T.V series, and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not theatres all over the world. Each gallery from Niagara Falls to Kuala Lumpur houses its own unique collection of rare finds. Here in New York City’s Times Square location, you can explore over twenty galleries of incredible exhibits, interactive displays and even artifacts collected by Ripley himself! From the incredible Two-Headed Calf to the amazing Albino Giraffe, the world’s largest collection of authentic Shrunken Heads and more is all here to wow you. Ripley’s Believe It or Not on New Year's Eve is an experience that has to be seen to be believed.
