Ripley Museo de lo Increíble - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

Anyone familiar with "Ripley's Believe It Or Not!" will not be surprised at the wackiness here in the Mexican branch of Ripley's "¡Aunque Ud. No Lo Crea!" museum. In this fantasy "medieval castle" are 14 rooms full of bizarre specimens including toast art, shrunken heads, African sculptures with apparently potent powers, and even a wax figure of the world's tallest man. (Wait, shouldn't he be in the wax museum next door?) Even the lobby of the museum has a plethora of oddities, such as a "human jail," a giant tire, gargoyles, and a 230-kilogram jade coin that supposedly brings wealth to those who touch it. The gift shop sells, among other things, replicas of the shrunken heads ($11/150 pesos). There's also a colorful candy shop and a modestly priced café.
