Most people are already familiar with the Guinness Book of World Records, which for more than 40 years has been documenting the biggest, smallest, longest, shortest and every other kind of "est" of everything that's been accomplished in the world. Now this Gatlinburg museum attraction takes things a step further, bringing to three-dimensional life many of the amazing accomplishments that are in the book. Throughout its two floors of exhibits, the Guinness World of Records Museum shows of superlatives in the worlds of art, sports, music, television, human nature and more.

The Guinness World of Records Museum tour starts when you step through the giant mouth of a whale as you enter the building. From there, hundreds of exhibits and even dramatic re-creations depict all kinds of amazing feats, facts and records. For example, you can explore the natural wonders of a cave, board Noah's ark with the animals or encounter some unusual circus folk. Also on hand are memorabilia from celebrity record holders, such as Elvis Presley's Hound Dog boat, or you can check out the famous Batmobile from the 1960s TV show, displayed in a replica of the Bat Cave. You can even compare your height to that of the world's tallest man and much more.
