This was fun to see. The wax figures are incredibly detailed and lifelike. There are several fun figures here following several themes from San Francisco history, movies, sports, music and US history.

I think it was $29 for entrance which included The Dungeon tour (history of SFO). My guess to go is mid-afternoon or late evenings.

Admission was around $50 USD for two adults. We arrived just before lunch and there were no crowds. The whole time we were in there we only saw about 4 other people. Not crowded at all!
