We got the special where we can do several things for one price, and after spending the day walking around. This was interesting. Take your time to read all the facts, it's not large so you won't spend more than 30 minutes in here. Also there are games that kids can play at the end but you need a bracelet... More

It's not worth the money. It is old and outdated. The games in the basement barely work and I think you'd learn more from the actual book. Pass on this one.

It's nothing special. Just like the other "spend your money" attractions. See it once, then be done with it.

Quite informative. There are even interactive things there that you can really have fun doing. I enjoyed that part the most. I had a fun time competing with my friend.

If you really like Guinness records, it is okay. Not much there except the activities close to the end of the museum visit. It will keep the kids busy and happy.

Interesting place that could be much better had it been updated. Lots of interactive exhibits at the end of museum are not functioning. With that high price of admission someone should invest a little for the upkeep and much needed update.

First visit, while I'm not one to be intrigued by past facts and records,this was still a pleasant visit. Smaller children would mostly likely become bored very quickly.
