Ripley's Believe It or Not! returns to San Diego for the first time in nearly 80 years—new special exhibition at the San Diego Air & Space Museum

Escape from the ordinary and step into the shockingly odd world of Ripley at Ripley's Believe It or Not! at the San Diego Air & Space Museum! This is the first time a Ripley’s exhibition has been 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 for you to see, hear and touch.

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)
  • Vampires & Graveyards (view an original vampire killing kit)
