We used our AAA discount, which gave us 25% off. I am glad, because the museum was small and used tiny props to demonstrate things

The Guinness World Book of Records Museum at Niagara provides lots of detailed reports which you have to read and review during your visit. The museum lacks interactive displays to see actual components of the records. There are some pictures, but no artifacts to see. The museum is very small and is on a few floors with limited space to... More

Over $60.00 for 4 people with a coupon. Terrible and boring exhibit. You can read all the same online or in a book. Huge waste of money !!

I am a big fan of Guinness World Records. I've owned over a dozen of their books, watched their programs (back when they still existed on TV), and have visited two of their museums. This museum was a very thorough disappointment. It has a very appealing front entrance with a giant granite ball that is kept a float by a... More

The lobby of this museum (which is free) is way better than the museum itself (which is pricey). I didn't enjoy anything there, I think my kids didn't too.

It was $60 for our family of 4 to go through. If you enjoy reading a bunch of little cue cards under pictures, then this is the place for you. Only a few actual displays to see. Everything else is photos. Not really entertaining. Do something else with your time and money. The coolest thing is the large marble that... More

We didn't bring our kids but if we had they probably wouldn't enjoy this. There was a whole lot of reading and even we weren't in the mood to do this. The museum is small and not a whole lot to see. We went as part of a package deal and most likely wouldn't return if we had to pay... More

We went with 3 adults and a 10 y/o. We found it very interesting. Yes it's almost all reading but even my dad who doesn't like reading enjoyed it and was interested. The 10 year old in our group also stayed interested although I wouldn't recommend it for children any younger. Could have been a little cheaper for what it... More

So, I saw the reviews and went anyways. I did because my son is learning all about these records. And it is interesting but I could have read it all online. It wasn't highly interactive. Boring for a 6 year old. And get this, the gift shop had NOTHING related to this in it. I was really hoping at least... More

Definitely not worth visiting - mainly just posters telling you about records - buy the book instead! Very small.
