Groups will be greeted with a glass of Champagne before exploring the world of the wonderfully weird with one of Ripley’s leading adventurers – characters in full costume taking on roles such as Robert Ripley himself, his butler, fellow explorers and many more.
The character guides will offer stories, secrets and anecdotes as they lead the exploration through the remarkable collection of curiosities.
Whilst sipping on the bubbly visitors can mix with the rich and famous as they get up close and personal with a portrait of Hollywood hunk, Brad Pitt, created using cigarette ash or mingle with royalty in the shape of Kate Middleton depicted using lipstick kisses. Continue the opulent theme with a rare solid gold signed Cartier foot, a replica Chinese pagoda carved from jade and come face-to-face with Tycho Brahe, who lost his nose in a sword fight and replaced it with one made from real gold.
