Housed in a western-style facility befitting of Jackson Hole, WY, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! - Jackson Hole contains more than 200 strange exhibits. Some family members may be grossed out while others are intrigued, but all will be entertained with the museum’s oddities such as, the world’s largest barbed wire ball, a real shrunken head, a bison made completely out of nails, two- headed creatures and more. A vampire gallery made tastefully to display some of the mysteries of these nighttime creatures is the newest addition to the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! - Jackson Hole. Families who are in town during the month of October can experience Fright Night, an evening event that takes place with the lights out. The gift shop has some interesting products that are fun to peruse. Robert Ripley, founder of the worldwide chain of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, acquired his collections of oddities throughout his world travels before his death at age 58. The cartoonist, illustrator, reporter and collector was described as an eccentric by people who knew him. Certainly this was reflected in his choice of museum collections. The exhibits are tailored somewhat to the museum’s location. Thus, some of the exhibits at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! - Jackson Hole have a western flair.
