Museum is very small. Boring... All exposure is old and dirty. I will not recommend this place. Save your money! What I didn't expect was that it seemed like some of the "records" were outdated along with the rest of the museum architecture. Small and kind of a waste of time if you ask me for the price. Yes it's... More

Too little pictures showing the actual records, overall outdated design, info shown is not accurate (anymore), not all info is shown in English/German, some of the interactive parts don't work, we details are shown in feet and not metres, some info is given in DM (old German currency before the Euro), some parts are under construction,.... I could go on... More

This was the least impressive museum i've ever visited and can't recommend it to anyone. It was small and dusty. The text on the wall tells about the world's largest kangaroo which is 3 meters tall. The dusty old kangaroo next to the text is one meter tall. Same goes to almost everything in the museum.

the museum is a little over priced for how small it is, but it is denmark where things are usually quite expensive. Its great for a rainy day or a time filler, taking around a couple of hours to walk around and be in awe at the weird and wonderful things around the world. There are also some great photo... More

This museum is a bit outdated and tired but still had a quirky charm about it. We had a discount with the Copenhagen Card so not too expensive for two, and the man on reception was very helpful. All in all a diverting hour for me and my son. The exit is bizarre, you come out onto a stairway serving... More

I expected the museum to be a little bit bigger. There were a few things that attracted my attention especially the competition with the machine to practice reflex, you have to push buttons with flashing lights as quickly as you can. The record-holder is Jenson Button with 67 hits I suppose. You can stop and enter the museum if you... More

We got this ticket as a c9mbo tocket with 4 other places. Some of the exhibits are very similar to the Ripleys believe it or not museum. Still somewhat interesting.

I have visited Ripleys locations before in San Francisco and New York and was expecting something like that. I don't think Guiness has anything to do with operating this museum because I think they would do a better job. It was fun, it was interesting but most of the exhibits were worn out and some just needed to be refreshed... More

On our last day in Copenhagen, we decided to head to the Guinness World Records Museum as we had seen in advertised in many of the booklets we picked up. When we paid for our tickets the gentleman at the counter had said for an extra 10DKK we can then enter The Mystic Exploratorie after the museum. We agreed and... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
