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 Some of the information displayed is out of date (the tallest roller coaster listed inside is now only the 4th tallest, and was in fact overtaken within months of opening in 1997!)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

This museum is not spectacular but I have to say it appeared at the right moment and we did enjoy it. More for the younger kids as far as the interactive displays, but it was an hour well spent. The haunted part was fun too. We went as a family of four with two older children. Our 12-year-old enjoyed it... More

For a long time I wanted to visit this place. I had read many negative comments here about it, but still I wanted to create my own experience and opinion about it; and I have to say it didn't disappointed me as I was expecting after reading the other posts. The tour takes ca. 1 hour, and most of it... More

This museum needs some TLC, but is still worth visiting if your children are Guiness World Record fans. There is a separate exhibition area with some gruesome hands-on exhibits such as a lightning conductor chair and an electric chair that visitors can operate. A little odd, but will fill a good hour and a half with both exhibitions.
