Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walking from Palace Square, through the arch, to Nevsky Prospekt you will no doubt be accosted by someone offering discount coupons to visit the Wax Museum - the one with Gandalf standing outside. At least, I assume it is Gandalf by what he's wearing as it looks nothing like Sir Ian McKellan. This is a precursor of things to come. Go in and check it out as it costs very little to get in and it's certainly good for a laugh. It is squeezed into 4 small, crowded rooms. The first is movie characters, the second is prominent world figures, room 3 is freaks, and through the freak room is a curtain with an 18+ warning sign that leads to an R-rated room that leaves nothing to the imagination. Most figures have photographs of the real person next to them (including the freaks which are modelled on real people) and thank goodness they do as without the photograph you'd be struggling to figure out who a lot of them are. Accuracy is obviously not what they were going for here. St Petersburg seems over-serviced with wax museums but it is definitely worthwhile visiting this one first, in order to truly appreciate the others.

After I got tired from walking around the winter Palace for like 6 hours I wanted to go eat and rest when I found this place and decided to try it since I was there.
There's 4 Rooms
1st for movie characters
2nd for famous historical people/presidents
3rd for people with weird things like three eyes large limbs etc
4th one is 18+ and you will laugh when you enter it with friends it features nudity (males and females parts) with weird sizes.
It took me like an hour to see everything and take some photos with the characters that I wanted.

Early morning I was passing near by will the palace was still not opens so I decide to have one hour here the entrance with 350 rubles with 4 chambers
The first one was for the most famous characteristic movies and animation like Harry Potter and his friends, shriek and his friends etc
The second chamber for famous people in politics and sports
The third one for freaky and scary characters while the forth one porn and naked characters
At the end it will make you smile
Enjoy your time

As far as I know, the essence of wax figures is realism and similarity to their real characters. There’s no trace of that here, apparently it’s designed for the fact that they’ll come in one time out of curiosity.
