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.

Went here because we thought it would be fun. It turned out to be dingy, dated and depressing. Had the entrance fee been much, much cheaper I wouldn't have been so disappointed. But this museum is expensive! Visit the fantastic Glyptotek and the Designmuseum, just don't waste your time here.

Back in the days, this small museum was maybe okay. Neither the presentation nor yet the records are up to date. The price even with the copenagen card is too high. If you think of adding the "mysterical something addition to your list, don't do it. It is even more worse and out dated then the museum itself. - No... More

It's a long walk of about twenty minutes from the City Hall. There is entry ticket for the museum however you can buy combination ticket with Ripley's believe it or not and H C Andersen museums. There are interesting things to know inside and you will need at least an hour to see all the items inside.

Although some of the attractions/ activities were actually quite fun to particitie in, togheter with our children, the all over experience was dissapointing. The interior, exhibitions/ activities are for the most part old/ worn, and the museum much smaller than expected in terms of activities and size. You can easily walk through in an hour, without feeling you have misses... More

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The exhibition is a bit outdated but very good for kids.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.
