From the world’s tallest man to the longest jump taken by a human, Guinness has tracked the most significant, interesting, and strange world records year after year. The interactive Guinness World Records Museum in Hollywood brings many of those records to life in a way that makes them seem even more real. The facts and figures here range from pop culture and technology to nature, sports, and space. The experience is much like a walk through a fascinating, interactive reference book.
Exhibits are spaced out over two stories and include touchscreen and video, holographs, animation, and other immersive media. There’s a section of the museum dedicated to the records of the entertainment industry, which fittingly includes a theater show. The family-friendly museum even offers visitors the chance to break one of its world records. It is often visited in combination with the Hollywood Wax Museum, which is next door.
The museum is located in the center of Hollywood, not far from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Plan to spend at least an hour exploring the exhibits. Admission costs $20 for adults and $10 for children. It is open daily from 10 am to midnight.
