  • All in all an interesting and also very fun museum with many stations to try out and participate. A few attractions could be revised and modernized. There is a combined ticket with the Creepy Museum, which has already had its best days and is also quite small - so it's not really worth it. But the Guiness World Records Museum is a fun program item for Copenhagen, especially with children! Descriptions in Norwegian and English, some are also described in German.

  • We entered this museum, just because we had free entry with the Copenhagen Card, if you have to pay neither is it worth it, the ticket is too expensive for what it offers.

  • Youngest grandchild (10 years old) wanted to visit here as he has lots of the Guinness World of Records books. The statur (?) of the world's tallest man, outside, is quite a big draw. But inside we were disappointed. It's all very tired looking. Several displays were not working. There were some games that related to world records for children to play. At the end was a creepy area of sinister things, but I thought they were pretty amateurish. And my grandchildren were not overly impressed either. So, if you are a fan, then by all means give it a try. I think we got more fun in the free Lego shop just down the road. Please see what others say - perhaps I am being a bit hard on them. One great thing is that we walked about an hour from our hotel to see the little mermaid and the expectation of going into the Guinness World of Records kept our 10 year old enthusiastic on the walk back from the little mermaid to the exhibit.😁
  • For people who are willing to read a lot to understand what everything is about, it might be worth it. Otherwise, I would skip this one. It is much bigger than what one may think from looking from the outside. It is very well taken care of and has a few games people can play inside.
