Going to M.T is fun and scary at the same time. Some of the wax figures are so real it’s frightening. There are different floors and each floor has different figures. Everyone from sports legends to politicians to musicians.

Very good attraction, not only by the art on creating characters but also due to how he “museum” is organized (allowing families to appreciate).

There was no queue as such. the time would depend on how long you want to spend time with each exhibit. its best to keep bout 3 - 4 hours
