It isn't as good as the one I saw in Florida, but still, for a family it might be quite entertaining. A bit of a facelift to the signs next to every object, they are now faily hard to read even if your eyesight is good.

We went with our toddler and 4 year old. What a waste of money! The exhibits looks old and information was not engaging. Rather than visiting this crap, I suggest to use the money to go to a cafe with free wi-if and do an online search while enjoying a coffee. That would be so much better.

The exhibition is a bit outdated but very good for kids. A good addition was a mystery hall (or something like that as I don't remember exactly the name.

Even if you're interested on the subject, this is a very poor place to visit. To much information to read in small posters near objects that try to represent some records. Copenhagen has a lot more to see and entering this museum will make you spend an hour of enjoyable moments outside.

To be honest we didn't even know about this place but as we were looking for the new harbour we walked past the figure of the tallest man in the world and got a quick photo, then headed to the new harbour. On our way back we had time to kill before getting back to our cruise ship and seeing... More

There is nothing interesting inside museum. Just few poor interactive games, few requisites and figures (i.e. tallest, fatest, smallest human ) and lots of tablets informing about particular records. Waste of time and money.

Wouldn't recommended you go out of your way to go here or put on the top of you intinery. But if you do have a few spare hours or the weather is bad, it is a fun and intestering museum. Lots of interactions, and good for children.

I was very disappointed. The exhibition is out of date and not impressive at all. Almost all of the interactive games didn't work. It's the only Guinness Worlds Records Museum in Europe but that doesn't make it extraordinary. I left with the impression that I wasted my money and time there. You just walk around, read info about particular records... More

This tired old attraction needs a good dust and update. It's quite tacky and although there are many different rooms with some hands-on stuff for kids, you still find yourself at the end thinking 'really? That was it?'. We went at 7pm (it's open until 10pm) and we were literally the only people there apart from the bored guy on... More
