Expect to see all things weird and wonderful when Ripley’s rolls into town next month…

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is coming to the Middle East for the first time ever next month.

The traveling show by the iconic New York museum will open up a pop-up exhibition in Dubai’s Wafi from September 3, and will be free for all mall-goers to check out.

Whether you’re into art and sculpture, American history or animal oddities, the exhibition is promising something for everyone.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of weird and wonderful exhibits of all sizes, and a number of interactive elements at the exhibition, which will run for three months until the end of November.

“We are very excited to bring Ripley’s to the region for the first time and believe it is a great opportunity to partner with the popular brand especially since it is their 100th anniversary this year,” said Katherine Revett, head of marketing at Wafi. “Ripley’s is more than entertainment; it is a remarkable and inspiring form of education too,” she added.

The exhibition will run across the whole destination, and there will also be prizes on offer each week. Mall-goers simply need to collect a passport and collect stamps from each exhibit location. Once you’ve completed all exhibitions, drop your passport into a raffle barrel for the chance to get your hands on a prize.
