A small museum with some key records and associated stories. Some attractions require more money even after you have paid your entrance fee, which seemed exploitative.

Things got more interesting as we climbed the stairs. Upstairs had a few hands-on exhibits for the kids. Younger non-readers would be pretty bored downstairs.

It's something to do. We just enjoyed taking photos. Doesn't take up much time. My daughter had fun though

I recommend you take your money no do something else's. It could be amazing if they added some new attractions inside. We found it boring you could just look at the book and get the same information.

Looking at the exhibits they have out front, the kids and I were anxious to go inside. We shouldn't have bothered. It was not worth the money at all. It is primarily pictures and plaques on the walls listing world records. Want to learn more about Guinness World Records? Go to the library or buy the book. It would be... More

Went here with my wife. It's mostly just paper articles hanging on the walls. You would thing one of the biggest tourist spots would have more objects. Best thing in here was the NES. Played mario for a couple minutes.

There is nothing to see or do here. Save your bucks and just pass it by. All you see inside is a bunch of news clippings and posters of the record holders. This hasn't been cool since 1920. Such a HUGE rip-off.

Don't bother wasting your money. There are no real artifacts here unless you are impressed with the world's largest pencil and longest paper clip chain. There just words on cards with worn,dated displays. Looks like it was assembled by high school students.

Well worth a couple of hours browsing the very well displays illustrating lots and lots of Records in a very attractive walk through format. Return visits encouraged for a nominal 5$.
