To be completely honest, I really expected these museums to be more fun for the kids but there was so much in these museums that was interesting for me to read and learn too. Not to mention, we homeschool our kids and both these museums were extremely educational and factual too! We actually spent about 2 hours in the Guiness World Records Museum reading all the facts and seeing the exhibits. We spent about an hour and a half in the Odditorium so if you plan on visiting these museums, make sure you plan for adequate time to enjoy them. It would not be fun to have to rush through them.
The funniest part was after we got off the elevator and stepped into the first room, none of us knew where to go and there isn't a tour guide...you're on your own. So we all stood there trying to figure out what to do (seriously, we stood there talking with this other family about 3-4 minutes) before David finally said "Oh, I bet we have to go through that door over there!" HAHA Once we went through the door, it was an easy path to follow after that. It was scary, you never knew what was going to pop out or be behind you, and it had some awesome effects throughout the house too. My favorite was the rotating tunnel where you had to walk across a bridge but it looked like the room was spinning. I knew the trick to get across but it was hilarious to watch the kids try to get across it. We laughed SO hard at them. In the end, we were all thankful to get on the elevator...well, we thought we were...you'll understand that if you visit the Haunted Adventure. The kids and David loved it and said they want to go again soon. Me, it's a haunted house....a great one...but they just aren't my thing!
