First visit, while I'm not one to be intrigued by past facts and records,this was still a pleasant visit. Smaller children would mostly likely become bored very quickly.

We visited this location recently and if I were asked to describe our experience in one word; lacking. When first entering the museum you're given a wristband that helps record your own records that you get to try to trial in the end of the museum. Before you can even utilize the band you have to personalize it to yourself... More

We went this past week with a 15 year old and 10 year old twins. We all enjoyed it, though many of the displays were duplicates to Ripley's Believe It or Not. The games at the end were a lot of fun. I see there are a lot of reviews they were not working, there was only one that did... More

The best part of this attraction was the games at the end, however, many of the games were out of order. We also had a very bad experience with one of the workers there. I don't think that we would ever go back.

On a hot day, it might be good to get off the strip. Lots of interesting records to see. Fun for the family.

Only part of this was very interested and worth going for. The interactive games you see advertised on TV that look so fun and appealing to young teens weren't working correctly. Several weren't working at all. Very disappointed in this attraction as a whole. The statutes of tallest man/woman were some of the main things we enjoyed.
