It would be more interesting to flip through a Guinness Book of World Records. This couldnt have been more dull. HIGHLY recommend the wax museum and Ripleys museums instead. My 13 year old and I spent 5 minutes in here, got bored and bolted. I felt totally ripped off.

Quite honestly the worst museum I've ever been to, very expensive to read a few cards, very dated and dirty. Shut this place down or renovate, Guinness should be embarrassed. Not worth going even if it's free

Here is another one of those kind of attractions that after you have seen one Guinness museum you don't really need to see another. It has the same type of things at the others do so if you have already been to one, don't spend your money on this one. However, if you haven't been to one, this is a... More

Not updated for 15 years, it still shows records that don't stand anymore. Lance Armstrong most Tour de France titles?!? Good laughter... 47$ for two adults and a kid for something like that? No, thanks.

I became a Guinness book fan as a child, so I had to stop in. Lots of information here; some of it is dated. Could use more updated information as well as artifacts and interactive displays not requiring tokens. If you're a AAA/CAA member, you will get a 25% discount on admission.

Great street side displays drew us inside, but once inside, the displays were mostly wall plaques and things to read on museum walls. I personally didn't care who ate the most worms in a minute, but maybe young children would be interested.

Not only is this one of the more expensive attractions but probably the worst attraction in Niagara Falls. The most interesting things are on the outside before you even pay. Once you're suckered out of your hard-earned cash and enter you are greeted to old, dusty and outdated listings. Anything that looked like it may be fun and interactive required... More

Our 8yo daughter loves the Guinness Book of World Records, so we had to stop here. This place is definitely dated and a bit cheap, as many of the exhibits are simply pictures or plaques on the walls, but definitely fun for an 8yo. Everything except the electric chair exhibit. Why is that even there? It's behind a curtain, but... More

Some interesting facts and records that anyone with a smartphone and Wikipedia could look up - and, at the same time, help the staff make lots of updates and corrections along the way. Like the one that Gordie Howe has the most number of career goals (hockey) - a record that was broken by Wayne Gretzky more than 25 years... More

We went here as part of one of the passes we got for the area. Really small and not much in the way of things to see but a few little interesting records here and there. Not what I would have expected for a GBoWR museum and not as much as I would have liked to see but it was... More
