This is a good place to visit if its a rainy day or if you are need to kill time. I give a 4 out of 5 because some of the exhibits are older, and because some of the interactive game displays do not work. Overall, you can learn some stuff and have fun here at the same time.

Thought this was going to be a cool exhibit with more things to see. It took maybe at tops 10 mins to see the exhibits and then it takes you to a game room to see how you do against world records, which was just as boring because half the stuff was broke or didn't work correctly. Was a waste... More

There are plenty of noteworthy Guinness records to read about and see; but there are also many records you can try and break yourself. However the people that have set these records are safe after my futile attempts. Give it a try.

A good thing to do when the weather is bad. I learned a lot from this museum. I always loved the Guinness world record books, so this was a definite must to visit while in Gatlinburg. A lot to see and a lot of things to take photos of.

Average sums it up with this venue as well... Was disappointed. Not knowing what to expect I guess I thought it was going to be more than what it was. If you have kids with you they will enjoy it but if going for a couple getaway I would advise to opt for something else.

Me and my fiance had so much fun especially on the games. When you go in you register a wrist band and play games and try and beat records. It was awesome. Defiantly will recommend and come back. 😆

This was our (me, my husband and our 4 yr old son) 1st time here and we were a bit skeptical after the experience we had just had at Ripley's Odditorium. However, the attendant here told us that we would be pleased with this attraction...the price was good so we decided to check it out. I must say that some... More

We got the special where we can do several things for one price, and after spending the day walking around. This was interesting. Take your time to read all the facts, it's not large so you won't spend more than 30 minutes in here. Also there are games that kids can play at the end but you need a bracelet... More
