  • 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.  more »
  • We visited as part of a deal where we won tickets to this and the two attractions next door (Tomb Rider and Haunted thing.) Otherwise I would not pay to go to this attraction. It is pretty small on th...  more »
  • 1st., go to ttia.org for discount tickets, then go. Lots and lots of educational facts as well as hands on experiences. They had more modern exhibits in and a lot more categories. Overall, this is a g...  more »

  • Pricey and outdated! It appears the whole place has not been updated for the last 20 years both the way it looks and the content. It doesn't have any newer Guinness records and all pictures etc made me feel like I am in 1990s. Even the loud music inside is 90s music. I can't say my kids learned much of anything. On the way out, there was a sign that said "please give us feedback" but when I asked where I could write my comments, the girl working there told me there was no place to leave comments with a smirk. Not professional at all. We won't be going back. I think the only reason this place is alive is because it's right next to the Alamo.
  • A great museum that can very easily be my favorite museum I have been to. Great things to look at and very well decorated and designed. Walk in and enjoy the amazement of the world records. You can try to beat them on the way through the exhibit. There is facts, things to look at, funny try it things, and even facts with answer choices to guess. A really fun place for any age.
  • Hasn't been updated in years. Almost all record information was from 2012 or older. A lot of the interactive elements were broken. Honestly, not worth the discounted price I paid. It earned two stars for having at least some interesting information and being somewhat entertaining to my young children.
  • Although I enjoyed the wax museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not next to this, I must say that the Guinness World Records Museum was a complete ripoff. Very highly priced (we spent $100) with nothing more to do inside than read captions underneath photos. Even my 13 year-old brother was bored and didn't want to stay. I won't be visiting again.
  • Almost every interactive display was broken and most of the “records” are outdated. I spent $100 for my family to walk through broken displays and read outdated facts. It would have been equally as entertaining to buy a world record book from 1995 and read it as a family.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
