  • I wasn't keen on the idea of going in here, but my dear daughter wanted to try it out. It turned out to be almost as cool as Ripley's believe it or not, but not quite. I am glad I went and will probab...  more »
  • We travelled over 400 miles and my son was super excited to go here. He loves all the world record stuff, and museums. We bought tickets online ahead of time. Had a block of our day planned out to go....  more »
  • 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 w...  more »

  • Not worth the money. Was basically like they took pages from the book and posted them on the wall, with an arcade at the end. The staff was all very friendly though! The wrist bands are made of fabric and only tighten! Very dangerous! When I tried to get it off it just kept tightening till my blood flow was cut off to my hand! The rubix cube solving robot at the entrance was the only neat thing.
  • Part of the Ripley package deal.OK in that case.Fun in basement with games.But would never pay just for it.Out of date stuff. You can look it up on web.
  • Everything could be seen online. Had ONE cool thing that was modeled to scale and you could see that outside. Don't waste your money.
  • Broken exhibits and some blatant falsehoods, like the age of the universe in light-years (unit of distance). Amusing collection of facts, but why bother stating the windiest place with a metric like max MPH as a place different than the highest land windspeed (also max MPH)? It's like this science centric museum wasn't curated by a scientist.
  • We had fun at the World Record museum. It was considerably shorter than the other Ripley's attractions we did though. Many of the interactive exhibits were down. Still, seeing the worlds fastest, smallest, tallest, biggest, and best was good fun.
