A museum for the weird & wonderful… | NinkComPoop

Before you read on, there is a video version of my experience at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum. You can view that by clicking here!

I was invited to London to celebrate Alien’s new film coming out in cinemas this month. While I was there, my boyfriend and I figured that it was probably worth while to visit Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum in Oxford Street. If you’ve never been before, expect to see a museum filled with all sorts of weird and wonderful facts. It’s pretty much the equivalent of opening up a Guinness World Record book and stepping inside. The museum is not your average, so prepare to learn about the weirdest kinds of people and some crazy achievements/creations they have produced…

This guy is famous for being the tallest man in the world. Don’t let my heels fall you for my height by the way. I am most definitely not 170cm…

I found the infamous blue and black dress!… I can confirm it was in fact blue.

They had so many different unique portraits that were individual in their own ways. Most of them were made from unusual items. One of my favourite portraits was this one made from cassette tapes.

This portrait was made entirely from cooking specific sections of toast…

I didn’t know it was possible to make my nose look any smaller until I compared it to this guy…

One of my favourite parts of the museum was this upside down room where everything was… well, upside down. The tea in the kettle was even pouring upside down!

This trip was honestly even better than I had hoped. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not kept it fun and exciting yet you’re still learning about interesting people along the way. One of my favourite sections was the mirror maze, which I am sure took my boyfriend and I even longer to accomplish than your average child…

If you are visiting London sometime soon, I would definitely recommend this museum as one of my favourite places to try. If you’re anything like me and the unusual fascinates you, then you’re in for a treat.
