Fastest, biggest, strongest, wildest, wackiest, oddest and weirdest. Guinness World Records honors record-breaking human feats such as performing the most drum beats in one minute and growing the longest mustache ever. And this new touring exhibit at the Perot Museum showcases these accomplishments and shows the science and secrets behind them. In addition to learning about other people’s achievements, families can test their own skills by creating accounts to track their skills across multiple interactive challenges such as games testing their reaction times, strength, speed and more. Children can work puzzles, shoot hoops, stack cups, punchpads, show their fancy footwork in a Dance Dance Revolution-style game and compete on the world’s largest Pac-Man video game. There is also an exhibit of quirky creations such as the smallest handmade chess set and the largest bubble bottle and wand.
Capacity is limited; purchasing timed-entry tickets in advance is encouraged. Museumgoers 3 and older are required to wear masks.
Admission is $20, $18 for ages 65 and older, $13 for ages 2-12. Entry to “The Science of Guinness World Records” is an additional $6-$8. Children under 2 are admitted free.
