You enter to a replica of the world's tallest man, and move on to the world's heaviest as well as the shortest twins. Then to food and drink: the largest shot glass collection in the world (seems appropriate for Vegas), replicas of the biggest fruits and vegetables in the world in a giant fruit basket, and information on a variety of food eating records. Although in a different area, that might tie in with the world's largest "air sickness bags" gathered from airlines all over the world!
Other sections of the museum include graphical or interactive displays for tallest structures, highest mountains, entertainment and music, and space achievements. Of special interest were displays with videos of the world's largest domino fall records that were fascinating to watch as well as a video of the worlds longest rope slide (two guys strung a rope almost a mile up a mountain and slid all the way down together on a pulley).
A special Las Vegas entertainment guide section notes the records set by the Luxor Beam (strongest light -- can be seen from space), Stratosphere Tower (highest thrill rides), Fremont St. Experience light show, Hoover Dam, and others.
For sports buffs, they have an interactive sports record database where you can look up just about any record every set in any sport. This is part of a good-sized sports record display.
Las Vegas Guinness World of Records is located at 2780 Las Vegas Blvd. South (The Las Vegas Strip -- halfway between Circus Circus and The Sahara across from Wet N' Wild). Open daily, admission is $6.00 for adults, $5 for students, seniors, and military, and $4 for children under 12.
I was in Las Vegas 7-7-2011 and I tried to visit the Las Vegas Guinness World of Records, but soon found out that it was closed. The building now is home to a CVS pharmacy/store where I was told that people come in daily looking for hte World Records museum.
It was an amazing experience! ill never forget the time when a grandpa starts stripping in front of me!
