We bought combi ticket to both Ripley's Believe it or not and Guinness World records. They are both interesting places but if I had to choose, I would prefer Guinness because it is more interactive place.

Lots of fascinating stuff, including some good illusions, but principally this is the 'Barnum and Bailey' experience. Enough to keep you business for a couple of hours wandering throughout your leisure. Right next door to the Scandic Palace and 5 minutes from Tivoli Gardens

A very well made up museum with lots of interesting facts and things to look around. It's near to the square and you also get to walk around looking at other things around the city as well. The museum has an option to visit 3 museums. But we did only the Belive it or not museum. Worth the time.

Okay pastime if you have purchased the Copenhagen Card. Not worth buying full-price ticket for. Too scary for very young children, especially when you get to the room with torture equipment.

we didn't do Ripleys but the lesser known museum adjoining it the Hans Christien Andersen is enchanting. you pay separately for this and it is well worth a visit

I've read the books and was interested in seeing the museum. The price wasn't too steep and probably about right for the attraction. Very quirky museum that tries to entertain you all the way through. Enjoyed myself looking at some very peculiar displays and would suggest to anyone looking for something different to do around town center.

Interesting visit. Paired up with Hans CA museum. Lots of interesting things to see. The story of the little match girl was quite traumatising having not heard it before

We went on a rainy day. Not every thing was super 8nteresting but enough was. S9me of the attractions and exhibits are very similar to exhibits at the world records musuem. We bought the ticket that allows us into both.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
