There are 95 Ripley’s attractions all over the world. Each one holds collections of oddities from around the world. The buildings are designed in unique architecture styles just like the collections themselves.
The collections are made up of hundreds of oddities. Visit one of the locations and you could see anything from spooky graveyards to a 22 foot tall car part robot. Or you could learn about such oddities as Britain building a nuke filled with chickens.
So how did these odd attractions begin? They were started by Robert Ripley, a world traveler and adventurer. Ripley was a cartoonist and reporter by trade and his travels took him to more than 201 countries in search of finding unbelievable stories for his newspaper cartoons. As a result, he discovered hundreds of odd artifacts all over the world. He opened “odditoriums” to house his collections and they were usually open for World’s Fairs.
Ripley was a pioneer during his time. He was the first person to broadcast from London England to every country in he world simultaneously using a group of translators.
