The largest Odditorium in the Netherlands!

When you think Amsterdam is not odd enough, you can explore the human and animal oddities in Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Most of you perhaps already know this famous attraction, since they have 33 locations worldwide. Amsterdam is the latest addition to the empire.

What can you expect at this remarkable attraction? You will learn everything about Robert Ripley’s travels to 200 countries in only 20 years. He was the most travelled man between the years of 1919 and 1940. On his journeys he, understandably, ran into a lot of oddities which are now all wound up in the Ripley’s Believe It or Not attractions around the world. Here you can see how tall the tallest man really was, see an authentic shrunken head, and mind-boggling visual illusions. In short, 5 floors of weirdness that will make your jaw drop.

Are you completely into oddities and other exciting shows? You could also try the Amsterdam Magic Show! See if you’re in town for one of their shows here.
