Weird and wonderful at Ripley’s Believe it or not museum, London

Last month during our family time in London, we were invited to see some weird and wonderful exhibitions at Ripley's Believe it or not museum. Both C and I had visited Ripley's before, but our little man was super excited to be making his first visit.
