“Ripley’s Believe it Or Not” at SD Air & Space Museum
Escape from the ordinary and step into the shockingly odd world of Ripley at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! This is the first time a Ripley’s exhibition has returned to San Diego since the California Pacific International Exposition in 1935.
For over 40 years, Robert Ripley – a real-life Indiana Jones – traveled the world collecting the unbelievable, the inexplicable and the one-of-a-kind. His vast collections, praised as “amazing,” “ludicrously strange,” and “extremely amusing,” will be on display at the Museum beginning February 1st, 2013 for you to see, hear and touch, Believe It or Not!
See in person the incredible “Believe It or Not!’s” you’ve read about it in the Ripley books and cartoons and watched on television. The Ripley’s Believe It or Not! special exhibition is a self-guided, self-paced interactive tour that is fun for the whole family and allows guests to fully enjoy San Diego’s most bizarre attraction.
Some of the many interactive galleries include:
Aviation & Space Oddities
Unusual Modes of Transportation
Strange People and Odd Animals
Weird, Wacky, and Unusual Art
The Robert Ripley Story
Tribal Artifacts collected from around the globe (including an authentic shrunken head)

The Man Behind “Believe It or Not!”
Robert Leroy Ripley, the cartoonist, the explorer, the reporter, adventurer, illustrator, collector and seeker of the odd and unusual, is a man who lived a life that can only be summed up by the statement he himself created; “Believe It or Not!”
His life’s work, his discoveries, his artistry, the tales he told and adventures he lived will forever be the foundation of all that Ripley Entertainment encompasses.
