Museum boasts only a select number of records that pretty much could be learned or studied by a simple Google search. Glad someone else paid for it.

I didn't go but my hubby and two boys 11 & 8 went. They were in there for almost two hours. Husband said it was a little outdated but fine. Boys loved it!

The exhibits are more than a decade old. It's mostly posters on the wall with some exhibits. The highlight is a room where you can see how loud you can scream. Other than this, it's about as exciting as reading the actual book. Save your...More

It is very historic and a little boring. The interactive games at the end made you forget about how boring it could be. Thought it had 3 floors but it was really 1 floor. I would have rather go to the wax museum. The Hands...More

Most of facts are from mid 90's early 2000's. Needs tons of updating. Mostly reading facts off of walls. Save your money and give it to Wikipedia.

My family loved the Museum. You could honestly kill 2 hours in that place. Has a bunch of info and hands on things to do, touch, play with. We can't wait to go back! Worth the visit.

I took my 12 and 11 year olds. We all had fun. There were lots of interactive activities that challenged you to beat the world record. Also the room dedicated to video games had some of my favorites, including Ms. Pac-Man, Centipede, and Galaga, which...More

The first level is underwhelming, just reading a lot of posters about incredible things. Once you go up in the elevator the fun begins. The Guinness town layout of the second level is really clever. There are tons of photo opportunities. As some reviews have...More

So, this was super lame. Some of the facts were cool. But no joking, EVERY interactive thing was broken. It was beaten up and dirty. They had a room dedicated to video games and you could play for free, but they were all broken. They...More
