New Addtions to Ripley's Exhibit

New Additions to Ripley's Believe It or Not! Exhibition

The Museum recently added a few new exciting items and displays to our Ripley's Believe It or Not! exhibition. Be sure to visit this summer and check them out!

 

Tallest Man Who Ever Lived--Robert Wadlow

Born of normal parents, Robert Wadlow started his abnormal growth at age 2, following a double hernia operation. At age 8, Robert was already 6 feet tall; by the time he was 13, he was over 7 feet tall! When he died in 1940, at the age of 22, Robert Wadlow wore a size 25 ring, had an arm span of 9', weighed over 440 pounds, wore a size 37AA shoe, and was 8 feet 11 inches tall.  Believe It or Not!

 

The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss 

Believe It or Not!, Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka “Dr. Seuss,” created a body of artwork that most readers, familiar with him through his classic children’s books, have never seen. This collection, known as The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss, was created over a period of more than 60 years and encompasses the entirety of Seuss’s multidimensional talent. The original artworks were rarely, if ever, exhibited during his lifetime and to this day are archived at Dr. Seuss’s home in La Jolla California. Exhibited in Ripley's are authorized Estate Editions adapted and reproduced from Ted Geisel’s original artworks. These works highlight Geisel’s profound artistic talent and important position within 20th century American art. Works from The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection have traveled to museums and are exhibited at fine art galleries around the world.

 

Lawn Chair Larry 

In 1982, 33-year-old truck driver Larry Walters attached 45 weather balloons filled with helium to his lawn chair, slashed his tether, and lifted off from his home in San Pedro, California.  His flight took him to an altitude of more than 15,000 feet but not before he entered controlled airspace surrounding the Long Beach airport. The authorities had Walters arrested and fined him $4,000 for his transgressions. Mr. Walters took a pellet gun with him on his adventurous flight to relieve the gas from the balloons, one at a time, to lower himself gently to Earth at the appropriate moment. Conversely, the milk bottles strapped to the chair were filled with water and used as ballast. They could be released one at a time in the event the pilot needed to gain altitude.
