March 6 – September 6, 2021

Discover the marvels of GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempts and the science (and secrets) behind their triumphs when the Science of Guinness World Recordsexhibition, presented by Highland Capital Philanthropies, makes its U.S. debut at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

A Family-Friendly Experience

You and your family will learn what it takes to crash through these seemingly impossible ceilings, the physical and mental thresholds humans possess, and the scientific principles that explain their awe-inspiring feats. Dozens of engaging exhibits – from the largest Pac-Man videogame to reaction competitions, speed drumming, and a dance-a-thon – will challenge and encourage all ages to go behind the scenes and discover the discipline driving these fascinating accomplishments. 

From the smallest stop-motion film (hint: it’s measured in nanometers) to the most drumbeats in one minute (2,400 beats or 40 beats per second!) to the longest mustache ever (14 feet) and the most consecutive pinky pull-ups (36), exhibition goers can discover some of the most astonishing record titles with opportunities to challenge themselves and others in pursuit of their own GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS glory.
