Starting on Tuesday, Sept. 2, educators will receive free admission to all Ripley's Believe It or Not! locations in Florida. To take advantage of this offer, teachers, administrators, counselors and support staff just need to present a photo ID along with a current pay stub. In addition to one free entry, educators will also receive a 50 percent discount on admission for up to five guests.
A visit to Ripley's includes more than 10,000 square feet of unusual exhibits, from fertility statues that thousands of women credit for their pregnancies to an authentic vampire-killing kit, a seven-legged sheep, a portrait of Beyoncé made entirely out of candy and other, like, really weird things.
The Orlando location of the Odditorium is at 8201 International Drive, but the free admission can also be taken advantage of at the museum's locations in Panama City Beach, St. Augustine (which is the oldest Ripley's location) and Key West. The promotion ends Oct. 19, so you've got some time to get weird.
