The Guinness World Records Museum on Clifton Hill is another cheesy, cheap attraction that is over-priced and under-thrilling. The 'museum' is just a few rooms of displays with signs that tell you about World Records. The worst thing is that many of the records are outdated, so the signs aren't even accurate. There is nothing to see here that is... More

We expected to be amazed and see more 'real' artifacts or replica's of the records. This was sorely lacking with it pretty much being plaques on the walls to inform of various records. There were very few video's replicas that were worth seeing. In one of the displays the doll had fallen over making it irrelevant, we expected more care... More

We took 3 kids ages 6-8 here and we had a great time. Many attractions at Clifton Hill take 5 minutes however we spent at least a half hour here. There certainly could have been more actual physical items on display versus photos and little write ups.

We went with two teen girls and they wanted to go in here - we thought it would be mildly amusing. We where pleasantly surprised. There was so much packed into here that we spent lots of time - which was great because it was cold outside!!!

Should have believed the reviews but my 10 year old wanted to go in it. Cost us $50 with a coupon for 4 of us. My seven year old was board. It's all reading. Not much interaction.

This place isn't bad for the price, but it sure could use some updating and repairs. Some of the interactive displays were not working properly and there really isn't all that much to see in the first place. I would have expected a museum to have a lot more exhibits, but it was a lot of facts printed and framed.... More

SOOOO disappointed with this attraction, exibits falling apart (held up with scotch tape) and lights not working for some. There was nothing inside we couldn't find on the internet. The best part was the giant ball spinning on water in front. Don't waste your money here, enjoy the free ball and spend your money somewhere else!

This place is very dirty and rundown all you're really doing mostly is reading so you might as well just get the book

The premise for the museum is good, and world records are quite an interesting topic. But besides updating facts and records, this museum has been needing some serious renovations. It isn't much interactive, which could be worked on with new technologies, and that lack of interaction made the whole exhibit too short to be worthwhile. Still, make sure to visit... More
