On January 25th Telus World of Science in Vancouver became a bit more wacky with it’s newest exhibit Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Unlock secrets of Robert Ripley at Vancouver’s favourite science centre, TELUS World of Science with this new interactive experience from January 25th until April 22nd.
See, touch, hear and experience this new interactive experience bringing the weird and wonderful world of Mr. Robert Ripley to British Columbia. TELUS World of Science is hosting the celebrated traveling exhibition, The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Growing up, I recall seeing Ripley’s Believe it or not and being in complete wonder. I caught wind of the new exhibit and I knew the girls had to see it in person and see if we could unlock secrets ourselves
Sometimes things are not always exactly what they seem and it was Ripley’s Believe it or Not which truly got my inner scientist intrigued. This exhibition reveals how science can unlock secrets and explain the unexplainable. Not to mention this exhibit also includes real artifacts, experiments, touchable specimens, along with computer interactive and multimedia experiences.
The girls were so excited to crawl through a life-size replica of Titanoboa, the largest species of snake to have ever lived. This prehistoric snake is as long as a school bus at 50 meters long and as heavy as a car.
You can even check out Robert Wadlow, who grew to 8 feet 11 inches (2.7 m) tall. Gain an entirely new perspective as you stand beside the replica with measuring stick! Believe it or not, when Mr. Wadlow died at the age of 22, he was still growing. Explore the science behind the unusual growth in people such as Robert Wadlow.
