It cost my family of 4 (two adults, a student and child) almost $60 and it is only a small section on ground floor and a bit more upstairs but it is mostly pictures and info on the walls. There isn't much to see. They have some things that you can try but you need to buy tokens (more money).... More

For 40$(2 adults and 1 10 yr old) not worth it at all. Just room after room of facts and fakes - fake ruby slippers is the one that stands out for me. Tried to keep the enthusiasm up for the 20 minutes it took to go through the attraction but unless you like to read in the dark it... More

This is a site worth not seeing because there is really nothing to see. as other reviewers have said the information is inaccurate and outdated. A total waste of time and money.

Buy the book, it is cheaper then the admission and the same thing. They have signs all over the walls that you read so again...buy the book. The place is so outdated, for the amount of the admissions you would think they would invest back into the place but it looks the same as when it opened. they should get... More

Unbelievable guinness record for biggest rip off. Takes 5 min to walk through and you have to pay to play inside. This is ontip if the 16.99 per person.

"Walk through two small rooms where you can enjoy reading sign after sign of information, with many outdated Guinness world records. It will take you right back to your grade six research project where you had to type information on pieces of paper and then glue them down for display. Some of those tidbits of information, may or may not... More

If you are interested in records, it is better to look them up online to invest in the annual record book. The displays are not very interesting.

I have been to this exhibit at least three times. The most recent was February of 2013. Let me tell you this "museum" has not been updated since I was in elementary school. This is not worth your money. It was fun the first time and funny the second but the third time was lame. If you're in to museums... More

Not worth the money, the kids hated it, adults couldn't even tolerate it and it wasn't cheap! Rip off! Keep the money and buy some fudge! Or buy the actual book and get more enjoyment out of that!
