If you are a wax museum fan, you have to visit!

I have to admit, I love wax museums, ever since I was a little girl. My dad took us once to Niagara Falls and I got to see my first one. Later in Spain, he took us to another one... read more

My spouse went in to the wax museum. He saw a lot of incredible and interesting wax figures. It is a neat place for the young and old. I think you may even have a chance to make a small wax item.

Pretty neat experience. It would be nice to have a few more modern figures. Overall it was a nice museum and included some cool historic stuff. The old pharmacy items were neat to look at as well.

I love wax museums but this one freaked me out. There is just so much in this place that you at times are literally surrounded by wax figures and they are very close. And some were not very good likenesses. But they do have artist who create the figures there on site working.

The last time I visited this place it was still near the Old Plaza. It has now moved near the city gates with the Old Drug Store. But the quality has not changed. I was wondering if I liked it so much because I was younger when I visited. But now that I have kids of my own, it was... More

Great to see historical figures such as King Henry Vlll and all his wives. Micheal Jordan, Johnny Depp,Harry Potter, Ray Charles, Anne Oakley, various Presidents of the United States and dictators such as Hitler, Stalin,etc.. Each figure had information about who, what and when they influenced history.

My husband and I enjoyed seeing all of the wax figures. It was a quick walk, but had lots to see. Supposedly all figures were life-sized. We were surprised to see how short people used to be!

Some terrific creations here. From Marc Antony, to Hitler, Roosevelt, Seinfeld, Tiger, MLK, Britney Spears, Einstein, it has tons of truly lifelike faces and charcters. Each creation I was told had athentic real human hair. The heads alone took three months to make, and torsos, eight months. Like this a lot! Some great photographs here.
