They update frequently the exposition, I´m not a fan of this type of museums but it was enjoyable, with family and young children.

I´m not really one for wax museums but my kids wanted to go and we all enjoyed it. Figures include artists, scientists, political figures, musicians, movie and TV stars, and more. Price is quite reasonable - especially compared to wax museums in US cities. You can bundle your ticket with Ripley´s museum next door but - apart from a few... More

Very funny experience, you can touch the celebrities and also take photos with the statues. It is in the same place as Ripley's gallery, which is very interesting as well.

The museum was a lot of fun. Some people didn't look like themselves but it was just a few. They had many Mexican and international people. At the end is a horror area which was fun to see. It's worth going especially if you're on the turibus.

Visit this place, it´s simply great. Some of the figures there are from mexico´s history. get pics with "famous" people, learm more about world´s history. After this museum, you can go to Ripley´s museum, right across the first one. Enjoy both!

If you are a tourist from another country you may feel a little lost with all the local celebrities and historical characters that are there. Nevertheless you can find international ones like Ghandi and it's a great place to go with kids, there's a Sesame Street's themed area. In the same place you can visit the Ripley's Museum.
