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!

Another really old attraction in Niagara Falls. Straight out of the early 1990's, I really question if Guinness has updated this showcase in the past five to ten years. What was present was cool, but it needs some TLC. One saving grace was the layout. It led us throughout the building, allowing us to take in everything without being crowded... More

You pay to enter the Guinness World Record Museum expecting to see a lot ... Unfortunately, you have to read everything since most of their exhibits are pictures with the book page beside it ... You should buy the book instead, it will do the same!

My girlfriend and I paid $18 a piece to get into this hot box. It was fall yet we were sweating bullets in this place. It does have 2 levels, but honestly it was nothing more than pictures of guiness stuff. We were not impressed. Find something better to do than this, like the Ripleys across the street.

Fun to visit but there is more reading than actual "things" to see. Kids got bored but if you like trivia, this place is great.

I see a lot of bad reviews, but my wife and I had a good time exploring the museum. I enjoy these types of museums. If you are visiting niagra falls it is worth a check out. I am sure kidswould love it here.

I was pretty excited to visit but there are so many outdated records and obviously they can't catch up with it. $13 to get in.... don't waste of your money. Only reason I gave 3 stars is I had never been to this place before and I somewhat enjoyed some of the records. But I imagine if you've been before,... More

I visited this as a kid, literally 15 years ago. And nothing has really changed during my most recent visit in August 2014. The exhibit has TV's discussing Bill Clinton becoming president, old sports icons on the wall such as Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa. The records themselves are interesting, but I can't help but wonder if the records showcased... More

This attraction seems like it hasn't been updated since they built it. I wouldn't be surprised if you went through there and googled these records and discovered that half have since been broken. Not very much to interact with and no attractions really. It was basically just a bunch of typing and pictures. Is worth seeing if maybe it cost... More

This place has lots of framed pictures/posters on the walls with descriptions and doesn't have a whole lot to see. It definitely is overpriced and, for the money we paid, is not at all worth visiting. Upon entering, we saw right away that it wasn't worth the money we paid because it lacks interactivity and just requires you to read... More
