Youre better off just checking out the Guinness Record book at the library. Just visited today (7/14/17) and both my 9 year old son and I were both disappointed. Old outdated facts. Most of the displays look like an elementary school science fair display. Poor lighting, interactive exhibits were broken and missing pieces. Overall, just seems they want your money then say screw everything else. Cost me $38 for an adult and child ticket. Very disappointed in this. Save yourself the frustration and just see the Ripleys Odditorium. Much more interesting and well put together, cheaper also. Will never be back to this place again.
So, this was super lame. Some of the facts were cool. But no joking, EVERY interactive thing was broken. It was beaten up and dirty. They had a room dedicated to video games and you could play for free, but they were all broken. They mostly had outdated Styrofoam plaques on the wall with what records were what and TVs from 1997 showing new hire-type training videos with random facts. Do not waste your time. The best part was at the end. I wanted to write on a comment card about everything being broken, and the pen was out of ink. Making literally everything broken.
My son really loves Guinness World Records and was dying to see this museum. Although it is touristy and pretty expensive (better deal if you bundle with other places), it was a decent set up. There were places to watch videos about records and tons of displays showing different records. The best part was that the whole museum was fairly interactive, at the end there is a room with tables where you can try to beat a few different tasks. My kids really enjoyed that part.
To be fair, our family did enjoy this place. However, I was very disappointed overall. The venue was dirty, many of the hands-on activities did not work. It was one let-down after another as my young kids got excited to try something, only to have it be broken. Beyond that, several of the displays were out of date. I would not go back for how expensive it is.
This is a fun place to at least visit once in San Antonio. I agree however that the price of admission is greater than what you get in return. Nonetheless this is a great family experience. There are a lot of cool and unique things to see here. It may not be a place you choose to visit everytime youre on vacation in the city but, it is something fun to do!

I personally thought it was really fun. It was way to over-priced, but it was very enjoyable. I dont think that everybody would have fun, because it isnt the most intense haunted house ever, but its great for families and haunted house beginners. In the end its up to you whether you want to spend money on it or not.
Overpriced (about $20 per adult) and most of the time youre just looking at very outdated pictures on the walls. You can tell most of the facts havent been updated since maybe 2001. They have a couple facts at the very end that are from this century. Do not waste your time!

Overpriced not scary, horrible customer service took forever to go up into the actual haunted house dont waste your time and the tomb rider 3D is the ultimate rip off my kids did not enjoy it at all
Neat information there but not worth paying for. All info you can get on a website. Nothing but pictures and arcade games. With quiet a few items not working. Dont waste your hard earned money
Not worth your money!!! I agree with every one elses comments! Everything was broken and mostly pictures on the wall.
Way to expensive for the quality of content. Outdated information, mostly pictures on the wall. Very disappointed ☹️
The museum is not what you expect. Most of the items are photos on the wall. I would not waste my money.

I highly recommend this as a great stop for families and singles. Lots to look at, and interact with.

Fun, but better value to do the combo with the other Ripleys activities nearby by.
Pricey but fun. Great pass time if youre in the area and never been.
Not worth paying for. Evey is available on the internet.
Interesting but not worth the price of admission.
My 8yr old son loved it, it was alright to me!
I liked the wax hands they had last summer
Good place. Expensive at $25 per person.
My son had lot of fun at this place
