You queue outside the building to gain entry, so not great in the rain. The 'skip the line' was a joke as they couldn't find my online booking! When I produced the emails of the booking and 5-10 minutes later we got a printed ticket at the desk.

You are asked to get a photo taken against a greenscreen when you enter through the double doors. You go down and upstairs to get to different sections, so its not great if you have any mobility issues. The wax replicas of Jedward, Trump and many of the models weren't very realistic. I know Deadpool has his challenges, but he looked like he could have done with a few christmas dinners to bulk him out! Many of the models were tiny, I mean Michael Collins has to have been taller than most 10 year olds. Tina Turners wig looked like something you would get in a Joke shop. The lighting was bad so selfies werent the best, even with flashlight on.

The ticking clocks all the way down the stairs was nice, as eas the enchanted forest. But the 'house of horrors' is for over 16s only. It had lots of anamatronic models jumping at you. Back up the stairs again, at the end is the shop (very basic) and the desk where you pick up photos, one photo costs €10. Its a glossy A5 size printed out under the desk. There are 10 backdrops to choose from. Our photo was printed off-centre, so most of the photo is of the background.

It was nice to visit as I hadnt been there before, but if a bit more effort was invested in models structure, clean costumes etc. they could make a fortune.

Hi R O Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Due to Covid-19 restrictions we do have to manage the capacity and flow of visitors throughout the building hence there may be extended wait times. We know it can be annoying to wait in the rain but unfortunately the weather isn't always our friend. In regard to the stairs, we do have a lift that visitors with mobility issues can request to use. We're sorry you felt the wax figures were not very realistic and that the lighting wasn't suitable for selfies. We appreciate your feedback and it will be taken on board. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit to Dublin. Kind Regards The Management National Wax Museum Plus

Really enjoyed the Dublin Wax Museum, lots of different wax figures and sets for photo ops, a fantastic chamber of horrors and some interesting Irish historical figures. Would definetely recommend and is a great way to pass some time when in the city. Can't wait to bring more of my family and pick up some more €1 vintage comics in the gift shop!

Lovely place with plenty to see. Wax figures were very well done and also showed the history of Ireland and our great celebrities both at home and across the world. Went with someone who is visually impaired and they were very obliging allowing her to gently touch the face so her experience was special too. Sound effects also brilliant and the house of horrors was a bit of fun. Plenty to laugh about too, thanks Mrs Brown-so hilarious! Thank you Paul our tour guide who is from France. So friendly and helpful to us, even taking photos.

Visited with my mum,
I believe we set the bar too high after visiting wax works in other locations like London, Blackpool we were shocked at how little some off the appreances of the wax works didn't look like the people they were meant to be!
The staff however didn't make the wax works I understand and were lovely on greeting us in and taking payment,
The horror bit did make me jump a little but for 16 euro I think I could off used my money elsewhere as it was over and done with in 15 minutes.
The few models in the Disney shop in the shopping area are worth more to get photos with than some of the ones in this building.
Also I think a great idea is if you had a orange colour paint for the wax hand at the end in the shop as I was going to pay €11 for one and wanted orange white and green for the Irish colours been a tourist i think it would be good to do this

I went with a friend and we had such a wonderful time. I really can't fault the experience. It starts the moment you enter the building with the customer service from their fantastic staff who I am sure don't receive enough credit.

Unfortunately in these times it lacks the q's and buzz that usually fills the place. On the bright side you basically have the place to yourself!

It's organised into different categories. Wax figures range from famous characters, celebrities and past figures.

Take the time to read the plaques and listen to their audios as it really broadens the experience.

The horror section was something I wasn't even prepared for. It made the experience well worth while, definitely a few unexpected scares along the way.

To round the experience when you think your leaving there's a little surprise to end your tour!

Thanks for having us.

To facilitate social distancing we are operating at a reduced capacity so the museum is quieter but we still strive to make sure everyone has the best experience possible. Our horror section can give quite the scare but we're glad you liked it. If you took any photos of your visit we'd love for you to share them with us online.

Looking at the website I thought we would be amused for a couple of hours… 45 mins if we were lucky. Could do with some refurbishment which would be fine if it wasn’t €45 for a family ticket. Horror stuff was pretty horrifying - not for under 8’s-10’s

Hi Vickymcdcal Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear you felt the visit was too short. An average family visit usually lasts between 45mins and an hour depending on how much the kids engage with sections such has the history of Ireland exhibits .Our horror section does come with a parental advisory for under 16s. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip to Dublin. Kind Regards The Management National Wax Museum Plus

.....and fun for the entire family!
This place is really great and all the figures appear "near-to-real"! There is even a horror section which is great for a bit of a scare.
Lots of cool wax figueres - not just only of historical people, but also characters from famous movies e.g. Harry Potter etc!
There is even one of Michael Jackson.
Though it was a good experience, I doubt if I would go back again in the very near future.

We came here for my daughters 12th birthday party. It was great fun.
It was a great mix of science, wax figures and the scary basement was very popular. Scared them silly, but not too much.
We got the wax hands made as part of the deal, which was something different.
It's great value for a party, and perfect for that age group.
