Fun and interesting for a look, good reads through out also. Buy the pass which give you access to all 4 places under the company so that you get som decent value for money.

Can understand the average or negative reviews but ok for the money to me. Lots to read and some fun and odd categories that make up the world records book to hear about. Doesn't appear to have been updated for a while but that adds to the charm. Quite a few things to interact with and some records to try... More

If you have kids around 5 and up this is a fun thing to do with them...they get a little scared, amazed and baffled. I recommend buying tickets online (cheaper) and to get the double entrance, World record museum and Ripley´s believe it or not...the two museums are on the two different ends of the "Stroget", which is the main...

I visited this place with my mom and brother. Even though there is some interesting information, this place needs an update. Many of the electronic devices which were meant for customers to use did not work. A larger variety of world records would be appreciated, as well as more updated ones.

I visited with my two kids at ~11 years. They had fun trying different stuff and were well entertained. It's was ok for me as well since my expectations were not that high. For the 3 of us it costed around 190kr which seems reasonable. It took around 1.5hour to go through the "maze" and I would recommend it on... More

This was a very good museum and we got a discount with the Copenhagen card there were four different sections, the first one you could interact with it a lot my kids loved, This was a little dated on the information but after all it was great

What a huge disappointment & total rip off this museum was! It was actually an insult to call it a museum! Here's how you save a small fortune & save yourself an hour of your life that you will never get back!! 1. Go to eBay & bid on a copy of the 1978 Guinness Book of Records! The 2017... More

Nice for kids, but not for adults Museums is very small; In 25...35minutes you will be finished with round trip, so depend from which country you are, it could seems expensive for what you can see there inside. Inform first about the price.

If you have to choose between this and Ripley's Believe it on not, choose Guinness World Records. It is only GWR museum in Europe. It is also more interactive. You can try to beat record holders for example in solving Rubik's cube.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood 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.
