Nice for kids, but not for adults Museums is very small; In 25...35minutes you will be finished with round trip, so depend from which country you are, it could seems expensive for what you can see there inside. Inform first about the price.

If you have to choose between this and Ripley's Believe it on not, choose Guinness World Records. It is only GWR museum in Europe. It is also more interactive. You can try to beat record holders for example in solving Rubik's cube.

Our child was fascinated by some of the exposed records and loved doing the active parts e.g. to touch lights at maximum speed, test how fast to drum etc. The exposition itself is indeed in urgent need of a "brush up" including cleaning and exchanging/updating exposed information - that is what we adults think. A "no go" both in our... More

Our son wanted to visit this museum when we were in Copenhagen, but we managed to avoid it. However, when we found ourselves back in the city early, we decided to let him go. Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, that's all I can really say. It is quite small, many of the... More

Boring, unimaginative and outdated. Copenhagen is a fantastic city - don't waste your time in this museum! Entirely overpriced.

Not much to see and very outdated. The presentation is very old fashioned. Mostly pictures or videos. It takes 20 minutes to see everything. Avoid.

To be honest, I quite enjoyed the museum. I liked the feel to it (although outdated), children would like it. However, most of the interactive games are not working, the world records are poorly presented on the wall and the replicas to illustrate them are even worse (not accurate at all). On the top of that, you have the option... More

Awful but I can't remember when I have laughed like that last time. For the kids the museum was OK but can't recommend for anyone.

Too little pictures showing the actual records, overall outdated design, info shown is not accurate (anymore), not all info is shown in English/German, some of the interactive parts don't work, we details are shown in feet and not metres, some info is given in DM (old German currency before the Euro), some parts are under construction,.... I could go on... More

This was the least impressive museum i've ever visited and can't recommend it to anyone. It was small and dusty. The text on the wall tells about the world's largest kangaroo which is 3 meters tall. The dusty old kangaroo next to the text is one meter tall. Same goes to almost everything in the museum.

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.
