Niagara Falls’ Guinness Museum Is Closing And You Can Own Some Of Its Stuff

Own a memory from the museum!

The famous museum closed its doors for good in September and is giving people the chance to own a piece of weird history!


According to CTV, Guinness World Records Museum in Niagara Falls is auctioning off Wayne Gretzky memorabilia, a miniature Koran, a giant Atari Hercules pinball machine, and more, as it clears out its inventory.

The fun and wacky museum have been a Clifton Hill landmark since 1978.


Other items going on the auction block include:

  • A Japanese-made Petal subminiature photographic camera from the late 1940s;
  • a metre-tall Gordie Howe sculpted caricature;
  • NFL legend Dan Marino’s memorabilia;
  • a miniature bicycle, which was once one of the smallest bicycles in the world; and
  • a Wurlitzer OMT Vinyl 1015 Jukebox.

The auction opened last Friday, but a live-streamed auction will take place on Feb. 12 — an event Ripley called a “must-see for any enthusiast.” There’s a full catalog of items up for grabs on the website!
