The Ripley's Museum in Amsterdam offers its visitors a journey of discovery through extraordinary, frightening or exciting stories and art objects. The Museum is a tribute to the cartoonist and explorer Mr Robert L. Ripley. He travelled around the world and discovered many strange stories and objects during his unusual adventures.

He decided to start collecting them in his own cabinet of curiosities. His collection started to grow rapidly whereupon he started the Ripleys foundation to ensure that everyone could enjoy his own cabinet of curiosities. 95 years later the collection contains over 25.000 pieces with their own history. His stories and adventures can now be admired in museums and books all over the world. And each story is always ended by the now widely known and used quote ‘believe it or not’.
