The greatest museum in the greatest city
London boasts the world’s largest Ripley’s museum, and with over 700 exhibits spread over six floors a visit here is sure to be a memorably weird and wonderful part of your trip!
Set in a fabulous Regency-style building amid the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus, a visit to Ripley’s is a journey through the world’s bizarre history, objects, achievements and curiosities.
Like art… but different
Art fans will love Ripley’s unique selection of por-traits and sculptures, with Michelle Obama composed entirely of bottle tops, Tower Bridge and the Titanic made out of matchsticks, and a depiction of the Last Supper on a single grain of rice!
The tallest, smallest, hairiest people
The museum’s namesake, Robert Ripley, described humans as the strangest thing he encountered while visiting 201 different countries, and the ‘Remarkable People’ section doesn’t disappoint - measure yourself up against the world’s tallest man (and his shoes measuring nearly half a metre!), see the ‘Cuban eye-popper’ and the exceptionally hairy person unkindly known as ‘the dog-faced man’.
Some things are just plain weird
Some things are so bizarre they just cannot be categorised, and Ripley’s has these in abundance! A wedding dress made from toilet paper, the Beatles in sculpture form made out of chewing gum, an 8-foot tall Optimus Prime made out of car parts, and an item of footwear belonging to King Henry VIII himself are some of the crazier items on display.
Get lost in the maze and see if you’d make it as a jewel thief
Take on the challenge of Ripley’s Mirror Maze, a hall of mirrors sure to leave you dazed and confused! The museum is also home to a tantalising challenge - take on the Impossible Laser Race to see if you can make it through a labyrinth of laser beams and make it to the top of the day’s leaderboard.
