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$.

They have displays for everything from music to animals to sports. They even have several interactive exhibits including a station where you can play Super Mario Brothers on an original NES.

It would be more interesting to flip through a Guinness Book of World Records. This couldnt have been more dull. HIGHLY recommend the wax museum and Ripleys museums instead. My 13 year old and I spent 5 minutes in here, got bored and bolted. I felt totally ripped off.

Quite honestly the worst museum I've ever been to, very expensive to read a few cards, very dated and dirty. Shut this place down or renovate, Guinness should be embarrassed. Not worth going even if it's free

Here is another one of those kind of attractions that after you have seen one Guinness museum you don't really need to see another. It has the same type of things at the others do so if you have already been to one, don't spend your money on this one. However, if you haven't been to one, this is a... More

Not updated for 15 years, it still shows records that don't stand anymore. Lance Armstrong most Tour de France titles?!? Good laughter... 47$ for two adults and a kid for something like that? No, thanks.
