    Robert Ripley traveled to 190 countries collecting the odd and macabre. 300 items from his collection are represented at this museum in Hollywood. It is well worth a visit for the curious. I have included a picture of the piece of the Berlin Wall on display here.

    We ventured into here and bought the package to see all three museums for $30, which was well worth the money. As you enter, there is a robotic figure of Robert Pershing Waldow, was 8ft. 11 in. and sadly only lived to be 18 years of age (1922-1940) . He sits down and then he stands to show his full height.(first photo) There is even a copy of his shoe. We a great time exploring and learning a thing or two. These are such fascinating places and a little spooky too. Yet there are some oddities that can upset some folks so be prepared. There are two floors filled of some interesting facts and exhibits. Another fun place to checkout! Wow, the kids just loved this place and well, some adults that are kids are heart had a great time too..wink..wink;^)

    Second: Neon lights outside get your attention.
    Third: Lui Ch'ung was a Chinese Minister of State 995 AD that had double eye pupils.
    Fourth: I called the Go Go room. Just a fun room you can dance too.
    Fifth: 17 Century German Dog Armor from Wartburg Castle in Germany. Usually worn by Great Mastiffs wearing the body armor along with a sharp spear and a burning sponge to set things on fire.
