Expensive and a Waste of Money!

It's expensive and a small museum. Took us maybe 30 mins. to go thru whole thing and we stopped to read! Many of the record listings are out of date so they were not accurate... read 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

There were some interesting exhibits in this "museum", but to be completely honest my family and I didn't feel that this one was worth the price of admission.

Guinness Museum in Niagara is a big waste of money. Outdated and in desperate need of updates to the information and the whole inside of the building/ exhibits. Don't waste your money here, go to Ripley's. Ripley's was much more fun updated and interactive.

Expensive, very small museum, not worth it, skip it and go to Ripley's which is much better! We were there maybe 15 minutes. Also, NOT wheelchair accessible!!

We bought a combo pass. It was marginally more to go to 4 attractions, rather than 3, so we bought the combo 4 pass and went to this museum. There are only a few interactive items which are free. There are a couple more interactive ones if you pay additional. This is mostly just walking through and reading plaques on... More

Enjoyed strolling through a piece of Guinness History recently! Although they have up to date Records they are missing my friend the Illusionist Lucas Wilson who has racked up an impressive 5 Guinness World Records!!!! Plus the fact that he is fairly local he should have his own exhibit!

We had some time to kill so we decided to go in to the Guinness and we entertain ourselves with the self guided tour . If you take your time and go through the Museum you can learn quite a bit that you didn't know .Most of it would only be good for trivial pursuit though . But I thought... More

Best to go alone so you have time to read all the stuff that's written there. If you want to just rush through, then waste of money. You can as well browse on the net and get the details.

I hadn't been here for 18 years, and after visiting now in May 2016, nothing has changed. If I had remembered the catch of having to buy tokens once inside I would not have wasted the money to come here.(The kids were interested each time we passed by the huge marble ball out front floating on water. Since Ripley's was... More
