Check Out the Believe It or Not! Odditorium in Branson

August 21, 2013 by


Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Odditorium is the most photographed building in Branson, Missouri and for good reason. The cracked exterior of the building reflects the 1812 earthquake the struck the area measuring more than 8.0 on the Richter scale. The quake caused the Mississippi River to run in the opposite direction for 3 days and was strong enough to ring church bells in Philadelphia.

More than 400 Exhibits and Artifacts

Inside the Believe It or Not! Odditorium, kids of all ages marvel at the large number of mind-bending exhibits of the odd and unique. Families can spend hours working their way through the displays which are fun, educational, and interactive.

Oddities like the two-headed calf are among the favorites, along with the human unicorn from Manchuria, and shrunken heads. Themed galleries include world records, amazing illusions, pranks of nature, interactive activities, unbelievable artifacts, and works of art.

Some of the newest additions include things like a full-sized stagecoach constructed with 1.5 million toothpicks pulled by a pair of horses created with welded horseshoes, African fantasy coffins, a laser shooting gallery, and a spinning vortex tunnel.


Recently Renovated

The 12,000 sq. foot Odditorium has recently undergone extensive renovations so they can cram as much fun into one building as possible. It’s not only an interesting place to visit, it’s also provides a great place to get cooled off on a hot Branson summer day.

On average you can expect to your self-guided tour to take 1 ½ – 2 hours. Be sure to bring your camera, too. Pictures are allowed.

Buying Tickets

Tickets are a bit pricey, so consider bundling your hotel and attraction tickets so save. Branson vacation packages let you customize the vacation right for you and save money at the same time.
