Perot Museum presents U.S. debut of The Science of Guinness World Records exhibition March 6

How does one develop the ability to do 36 consecutive pull-ups using only their pinky fingers? What does it take for someone to create the world’s smallest stop-motion film? And what motivates someone to learn how to solve three Rubik’s Cubes simultaneously … whilst juggling?

Discover the marvels of GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempts and the science (and secrets) behind their triumphs when The Science of Guinness World Records exhibition, presented by Highland Capital Philanthropies, makes its U.S. debut at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science on March 6, running through Sept. 6, 2021. Guests 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. The Science of Guinness World Records™ is supported locally by the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District and, in part, by the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Cultures.
