This place is just so outdated and silly. It just seems like one of those old roadside attractions that refuses to let go. It’s holding on to the carnival side show days that are long gone. In a day when most “world records” are nothing...More

The Guinness museum was full of interesting "records" and fun to visit, but the majority of the interactive displays were broken and could not be used. It was disappointing for a nine-year-old who is tech savvy and wanted to use all of the displays. I...More

This might be fun for kids, but its extremely over priced for what it is. We were a group of all adults and didnt enjoy this and found it was a total waste of money

I never write reviews, but I feel it is my duty to warn anyone considering spending their money on this joke of an “attraction.” The rooms literally have deteriorated posters on the walls explaining various records. I can see that on the internet for free....More

Very shabby and worn out exhibits. Interesting and fun facts but this location has seen better days. These types of places are meant to be bundled with the other stuff in the area like Ripley's Haunted tour or the Tomb Raider ride. Neither of which...More

I walked into this museum having really high hopes and having been a fan of the Guinness world record books my whole life. The statue of the world’s tallest man out front was cool. The displays illustrating the size of the heaviest human were sort...More

While on vacation on San Antonio, we took our 6yo here one evening. Lots to look at and experience. Fun time, but a little pricey.
