It is possible to buy combined tickets to two or three museums besides Ripley’s (Guinness Records, Believe It or Not! and Andersen’s World of Wonders) at a lower price than to buy a single ticket in each of the museums.
Here you will be able to see only extraordinary, illogical and unclear things: a harp without strings playing nice tunes, Taj Mahal made of matches, as well as a portrait of queen Margrethe created of 300 thousand sulphur covered chips, mammoth skeleton, an incredible robot and even a convict, who survived after 13 bullets shot in him during execution (who was by the way released from custody after this wonder).
You will learn what Scotts have under their kilts, how to write a letter on a rice grain, whether it is possible to keep balance in a rotating tunnel, how to kill a vampire and lots of absolutely useless but unbelievably amusing items. And in the room entitled ”Three Ball Charlie” you will meet Charlie, who demonstrates the ability to whistle tunes with a billiards, tennis and ping-pong balls in his mouth.
