Inside a Typical Odditorium

Housed in very unusual looking buildings, each Ripley Odditorium is typically around 10,000 square feet and offers a self-guided tour through 300-500 exhibits.

Each Odditorium is unique in its architecture and in its collection of oddities and their presentation. There is a careful balance between the strange, the shocking, and the beautiful.

In the Odditoriums there are works of art made from everyday objects, incredible collections, and strange hobbies. 

There are exhibits from the worlds of science and illusions, hands-on interactive displays, videos, wax figures, cartoons, photos, rare artifacts, and state of the art special effects, all set in exotic themed surroundings, including spooky graveyards, lush jungles and scenes of natural wonder.
