Interact with the strange, bizarre, and extraordinary.

All of the above and more can be seen and witnessed right now in San Diego's own Balboa Park.

The San Diego Air and Space Museum invites you to enter the shockingly odd world of Ripley in Ripley's Believe it or Not! exhibit. This self-paced, hands-on exhibit invites visitors to experience the strange and radical world of Robert Leroy Ripley through his artifacts and findings, stories and experiences. From prehistoric jaw castings to an enormous statue of the Incredible Hulk, this exhibit allows visitors to question, wonder, try, and most of all, believe.

This is a not to be missed opportunity, as this is the first time that Ripley's exhibit has been to San Diego since the California Pacific International Exhibition in 1935. At that time, Ripley had created an "Odditorium" to exhibit his findings. Today, the San Diego Air and Space Museum has created an odditorium of their own with this expansive and unusual exhibit.

Take a walk on the wild side and see for yourself. Ripley's Believe It or Not! exhibit is open daily. For current hours and pricing, see their website here.
