It was just called the "Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum". I remember there was a model of a ship made out of toothpicks and a ferris wheel made out of sugar cubes or something like that. Lots of bizarre & kind of creepy stuff. My best friend & I had a blast checking the place out.
Different museum. Not sure when the Believe it or Not Museum opened, but the museum the OP is referencing was a different attraction altogether and was long gone by the early 90's.

They rebuilt the museum after the big fire in a new location. It is now one block down from where it used to stand if I remember correctly.
