The world famous Ripley’s “Believe It or Not” was created by American cartoonist
 Robert Ripley. As he traveled to 198 different countries throughout his life, he gathered unique items, which eventually became his huge fine collections of oddities.
In 1941, after the death of Robert Ripley, his colleague and a friend established the Ripley’s foundation, published a book, and built the first museum. This led Believe it or Not!
to become the largest franchise museum in the world.
The new branch in Jungmun, Jeju was opened December, 2010.
