A bit boring and oldfashioned and quite a few errors (false information).

It's not really bad. Could have been an OK museum provided all the information was correct. I discovered several pieces of wrong information when I visited. I wrote to the museum... read more

The children were totally amazed by this place and really enjoyed. There were lots of records on display, some of them really weird and seemingly impossible. There was a good mix between things to read and look at and interactive exhibits. Definitely worth a look,especially if you have curious children!

The kids enjoyed it, but the place needs to be reorganzed. Average is not enough on such an intetesting topic. A clear example of a management not listening to the custumers.

The museum looks old and smells really bad. The screens have a really bad quality and the records sometimes aren't accurate anymore. Maybe fun for kids, but doesn't worth 90 DKK for an adult. There is a basin of 1 meter long and 1 meter large, maybe 40 cm deep with two big fishes. Definitely too small ...

Not worth to go or to pay money for ticket. Everything is really old, some things are just broken... Better choose any other museum.

We tried it out and found it very anoying. Maybe kids can have fun here but it was nothing for a couple like us. Also it looks a little bit aged. However it's not very expensive and as such an easy passing hour.

Not worth the money! The kids likes some of the things but the place is old and uninteresting. Not worth a visit.

This place is hilarious! The exhibits are so bad they are funny! We had a great time here, but be prepared to keep your tongue firmly in cheek as you look around. Lots of photo opportunities and there are exhibits you can have a go at, which is nice. The Harry Potter section is just hilarious!!!!

I was expecting more from this place, mostly because I read that is the only in Europe. It is funny because that are some places you can play trying to overcome the record. If you have the book, do not waste your time there.

I'd been to Guinness World Record museums before so knew what to expect. Copenhagen's version is a little dated. Some of the information displayed is out of date (the tallest roller coaster listed inside is now only the 4th tallest, and was in fact overtaken within months of opening in 1997!) The displays are reasonably interesting, but you could find... More
