Ripley’s will awe you with amazing displays of eccentric art, meticulously detailed sculptures constructed from used car parts, as well as many extraordinary animals that greet you as you walk through the Ripley’s courtyard. There are over 500 rare and unusual artifacts from 200 countries around the world, collected by Robert L. Ripley himself.
Most recently, the exclusive Cheetos Museum has been constructed within the walls of the New York location, and it’s only here through August. It is a must-see (and smell) for anyone who loves the crunchy, cheesy snack. There are larger-than-life size sculptures of Chester the Cheetah, along with a collection of Cheetos that resemble everyday objects, ranging from cats stuck in trees to wishbones. Cheeto-eaters can submit their own specially-shaped Cheeto photo on the Cheetos Museum website through August 8 for a chance to win $50,000! The New York gallery is great inspiration to get you into a cheesy state of mind!
The New York attraction is the largest Ripley’s museum in North America, complete with over 20 galleries. This summer is the perfect time to keep cool in the company of the unusual, the unexpected, and the unbelievable, right in the heart of Manhattan.
