Authentic and classy work. More than the wax statues, the musical instrument display is amazing and great. I never knew that there are these many types of instruments. Music lovers delight.

The museum is good. Do not expect much.Though there are few other statues but they mainly focus on various music instruments of different culture. However I can't find why this place isn't recognized by government(as they say so), but the effort is good.

We need to be encouraging the artists work here. Really great work. If they were funded better I believe they could have crossed Tussauds. Worth visiting and getting the souvenirs.

Cons: 1) Not worth the ticket cost 2) All wax figures have similar... More
