See that headline there? That’s what you call Search Engine Optimization folks! Welcome all you teenage girls looking for the Biebs, as promised, here he is…
Yep, that right there is a portrait of the teen heartthrob made entirely out of candy. I told you it was sweet. Now, onto more important business…
Last week, I took a few days off to celebrate the 4th of July in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. One of the newest attractions at the Harbor is the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum. I love strange, weird stuff, and this museum delivers weird by the truck load. I’ll highlight some of the pop culture items on display, but believe me, there is plenty more to see.
This Bumblebee Transformer made from car parts towers over you as you buy your ticket in the lobby.
Also in the lobby, is this full wall-sized rendering of the King of Pop — Michael Jackson’s portrait constructed from soda pop cans. Awesome except for all the idiots who crushed the cans within their reach. This museum has only been open since last month, so this particular exhibit might not last very long.
You can’t really see it in this photo, but this portrait of Heath Ledger as the Joker is made up entirely of the words “such a shame.”
How many musician does it take to make this Elvis? A lot!
This was by far my favorite exhibit–Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry made out of 500,000 matchsticks! This thing is huge, and incredibly detailed, and I want it in my living room! So cool!
This tapestry looks like green and white stripes from the front, but when you move to the side, Hagrid appears. Freaky deaky.
Why should Justin Bieber have all the fun? This portrait of Harry Potter is made entirely out of black and red licorice! Swee–oh, never mind.
“I wish I was big.”
The Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum was an absolute blast, and there is a ton of weird and wild items to see, so if you find yourself in Baltimore, this museum is definitely worth a visit.
Baltimore? I didn’t realize you were close to my neck of the woods. Awesome pics! There’s a Ripley’s Believe it Or Not museum in Myrtle Beach that I’ve been to, but it doesn’t contain anything nearly as cool as what you just posted. And A+ on the SEO!
Baltimore’s only an hour or so from where we live here in Virginia. We went up for the 4th of July and had an awesome time watching the fireworks from the air-conditioned comfort of our hotel room. 😉
I would so love to go there!
There’s a Ripley’s here in NYC, in Times Square. Haven’t been yet. Hope it’s as cool as the one in Baltimore.
Is it creepy or could I take my 7 and 4 year old girls there?
I took my 7 and 4 year olds and they survived. There are creepy items but it’s all fairly “fake” so they were okay with it. There are a lot of fun hands-on activities for them to play with. We did the mirror maze too, which was probably the most intense aspect of the visit–lots of loud music and lights.
