It is a small location with a lot of reading materials. Most plaques didn't have a picture or display to match up to them. I didn't see an elevator for wheelchair access but guessing they would have to have one. When you first enter the building you see a few displays then you must immediately have to walk down a...

MIMomTraveler, Thank you for the review! addressing your concern, we certainly are wheelchair accessible. We don't have an elevator, but we have an alternate path that still allows you to see everything. I'm happy you and your children had a great time! We hope to have you back! More

The title pretty much sums it up... We purchased the combo passes with our aquarium tickets and this was one of the other attractions that we visited and this was extremely disappointing... It also had a weirdly unpleasant smell :(

Not really much to see or do and most of the place looks very worn. The cost for two adults and three children was about $50. Not really worth the visit. There were a few exhibits some may find interesting, but most items were either fakes (like large jewels) or simply pictures. Certainly not worth it for very young children.

My son (9) is a big fan of the books so he wanted to visit this on our trip to Gatlinburg. It was ok, not as good as Ripley's or anything. We had a good time and that is all that matters. This was like a one trip thing though.

Brought the family as we had purchased a combo ticket with the aquarium. Everyone found some very interesting things in the museum that they were impressed with. The kids especially loved it. I would return again as it was a great time.

So we stopped and took pics of the kids standing next to the Robert wadlow exhibit. Great pictures. However we got sucked into believing everything else would be just as good. The place has pictures and replicas of world records. You can find all if these records online or in the Guinness book of world records book that u can... More

Most interactive exhibits did not work. And a lot of the records need updated. Buy the book instead of walking through it is more interesting in my opinion.

This is a neat place. The only negative I can share is that it's aged. Many of the pieces are in less that satisfactory condition...otherwise, I would recommend this as a definite stop!

What kid does not enjoy thumbing through the pages of a Guinness Book of World Records. As a teacher I know that this book is one of the hottest selling items when book fair rolls around!

We went roughly 5 hours ago and it was the worst activity we've done since our visit here. There were just 2-3 fun interactive exibits, the rest wasn't that interesting at all.
