"Walk through two small rooms where you can enjoy reading sign after sign of information, with many outdated Guinness world records.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!

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I was pretty excited to visit but there are so many outdated records and obviously they can't catch up with it.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
