We had a lot of fun at this wax museum! They had some really great wax figures and it was fun to take pics with all these famous people. Some were so real looking it was actually creepy! :) We really enjoyed our visit here....More

I went with my family of 5 and paid over $100 to tour the museum. The wax figurines are incredible and lifelike, but there were less than 50 total (about 20 presidents and 20 current celebs) and the tour took about 30 minutes.More
