Catch “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” Exhibits at WAFI Mall for FREE

Aside from the much-awaited Museum of Illusions that’s opening at Al Seef, there’s another famous new attraction in town — Ripley’s Believe It or Not — believe it or not!

You may have heard about Ripley’s, a worldwide travelling show that features unusual exhibits. Well, for the next three months, you can get a glimpse of the popular attraction at WAFI Mall, according to the mall’s official website. And it’s absolutely FREE!

Worldwide Travelling Show Now in the UAE

Founded in the United States by Robert Ripley, the show started out as a newspaper panel. In fact, many periodicals still publish it today — featuring unusual feats, amazing people, and bizarre happenings. Since then, it has been showcased in radio shows, TV shows, comic books, a book series, and in a chain of museums around the world!

And now, for the first time ever in the Middle East, Ripley’s Believe It or Not has arrived! What can you expect to see at WAFI Mall? There are 75 exhibits all in all, including:

  • A five-legged cow
  • A mastodon’s skeleton
  • A robot made of car parts
  • A Van Gogh image made of post cards

What’s more, the show includes interactive exhibits, along with themed displays about recycling, transportation, and other interesting subjects.
