The museum was interesting and inexpensive. It was definitely something to do while we explored downtown hot springs. The wax figures, however, were not lifelike or good reflections of the people they were intended to be. They all seemed to need a good hair brushing. It was fun. But not on the same level as other wax museums.

My seven year old daughter loved the museum. I enjoyed the museum too, I have never been to a wax museum. It could use some updates but we had a great time.

My girl friend and I stopped into this little museum just to do something different. We had a really great time, however everything is pretty dated, and it didn't take more than 30 minutes or so to get through it all.. and that was with us taking our time. If you've ever been here before, you've seen it already, as... More

It doesn't appear that they have cleaned their exhibits in several years. Dust in the clothes and hair. The Kennedy exhibit had ceiling plaster on the character. Even at $10 it is not worth it.

This is a great place to see a variety of wax figures. Children will definitely love this place. They also have a store where kids can get a lot of colored mineral stones.

Let me begin by saying that I have never rated anything "terrible"....till now. Over the last thirty years, I have visited this museum on three occasions, the last just a few days ago. And honestly, it looks EXACTLY the same - no updates with only additional layers of dust the only change. This museum is dreadfully outdated. The exhibits are... More

The actual wax museum part of this place is pretty dated. I've been a few times and they haven't changed much. But what is very interesting is the new exhibit on the history of Hot Springs. They have several areas showing casino memorabilia and news stories from when Hot Springs was home to lots of gangsters (like Al Capone). The... More

Nearly exactly the same as it was 12 years ago when we visited last. Overpriced for what it is. Save your money and go to the 4D experience next door.

Wax museums are interesting and if you've never been, you will find this to be the case. If you've ever been to one before, you will be disappointed in this one. Thankfully, we got the discounted tickets because we purchased the DUCK tour, otherwise, we would not have gone in. It did have a lot of interesting casino history in... More
