It is worth visiting once. If there were more stuff to it then I would definitely visit for a second time. I have to say I think it is a bit over priced for a ticket here.

It wasn't at all what we expected! It is self guided and a little dated. It doesn't take much time to go through and some of the features are not in working order. A little too much money for what it is once you get inside. It's really not geared for younger kids, so it just really wasn't something for... More

For one adult, it is about 12 dollars. This isn't really that bad for what you get. There are some interactive stuff to do, you won't leave bored

Always wanted to go since I was a kid. Went and was not impressed but wasn't upset either. Interesting facts, Loved the motorcycle and old car exhibit. Price should be a little lower because of the age of the exhibits.

A lady was nice enough to give us two free tickets. So I separated from our big group and took my 9 year old son with me. It was a underwhelming experience. The facility needs to be remodeled and updated. It felt dirty and dark. There are some interesting things showcased but the presentation of it all was to be... More

We stopped in lots of little places on this trip as a family mostly tourist trap junk like all these places serve- good overpiced fun. World Records was actually a good deal. We spent an hour in here for about 40 bucks as a family of three which is tough to beat- lots of interactive exhibits took up a lot... More

Hubby and I visited on a date night during our holiday getaway. We've both been to Gatlinburg a million times but hadn't been here since we were kids, so we decided to go as adults. It was neat. We went late so it wasn't crowded. Hubby and I both like things like this so though it was cool, nothing seemed... More
