The Exhibition

Be amazed. Be amazing. Come to our newest exhibition, The Science of Guinness World Records. Discover the world’s great record holders, and what it took to cement their names in the history books and potentially become a part of history yourself!

All around the world, people are pushing themselves to achieve new and amazing things. From the world’s longest mustache (14 feet!) to the most drum beats in 60 seconds (over 2100 beats... or 35 per second!), to the most consecutive pinky pull-ups (36!), the world is full of fascinating people achieving strange and incredible feats.

Now, for the first time ever, we’re looking into the science behind these mesmerizing accomplishments with our new The Science of Guinness World Records exhibition.

Go behind the scenes and see what it takes. Hear the stories of those who set out to break new ground and succeeded. Learn the secrets, then try them for yourself. Challenge your friends, your family, your classmates, or even other visitors.

Can you set a world record?

Set new records. Challenge old ones. Make the history books.

Fame and glory await those with the talent, courage, and tenacity to become #1. Be sure to check the event schedule for your opportunity to impress actual GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicators and become OFFICIALLY AMAZING.
