Credit to Ripleys Believe it or Not – Branson
Connoisseurs of the creepy and aficionados of the awful on Missouri holiday will definitely want to visit the clearly cracked Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium in beautiful Branson for a truly terrible tendering of all things weird and not so wonderful! The building itself, one of the most photographed in the world, appears rent asunder by a massive seismic event-which is the whole idea! While it’s common knowledge that the Golden State of California holds the record for shakiest grounds, Missouri’s New Madrid Quake of 1812 actually caused the Mississippi river to run BACKWARD for three whole days and rang church bells in Philadelphia-believe it or not. This popular palace of the preposterous is open daily and treats groups on Show Me State excursion to an eerie eyeful with its hundreds of strangely amazing exhibits and artifacts- when was the last time you saw a genuine vampire killing kit, a human unicorn, authentic shrunken human heads or a playing card replica of the Roman Colosseum?
