Ripley's Believe It or Not has partnered with Science North in Sudbury to create a new global travelling exhibit, showcasing some of the strangest items in the world.

Visitors to the Science North show can expect to see things such as life-sized insects created from human hair, or artwork on the pin of a needle too small for the human eye — or the longest sword that can be swallowed by a human.

One human who does that sword swallowing as a sideshow performer with Ripley’s is Tyler Frye. "It's a really exciting job entertaining people for a living and showing people how the humanly impossible is really possible," said Fyre.

"And how is it possible? It's all possible through science."

Students from College Boreal will be designing and using their carpentry skills to showcase the collection.

It will be at Science North in March and then will spend the next 7 years travelling the world.

The Ripley's exhibition marks Science North’s ninth travelling display
