Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum Buena Park Closed
Ripley’s “Believe It or Not!” Museum in Buena Park has quietly shuttered its doors for the last time. The 10,000 square foot “odditorium” housed Robert L. Ripley collected treasures. Among the many unique objects on display wee a work of art made entirely of clothes dryer lint, a flea circus with fleas in costume, shrunken heads. The more than 300 exhibits at the Buena Park location have been moved to Florida, where they will be refurbished. For sale signs are up and the huge sign along the Beach Blvd. has been covered up. All pre-purchased discount tickets, gift certificates or coupons for the Buena Park location will be honored at the Ripley's Believe It or Not in Hollywood.
