The Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum at Fisherman’s Wharf is big, bright, loud, ridiculous, and full of bizarre oddities. While exhibits seem incredible, when given the choice, you and your children will probably opt to believe them. On display are the two-headed calf, the eight foot cable car made of matchsticks, and the shrunken corpse. The museum doesn’t really have a unifying theme and its only underlying message seems to be that the world is an exceedingly strange place. Still, it’s great fun, and you can have your future told to you there by a mechanical man — what other place on earth can you say that about?
