The Museum is very cool but it is in some need of serious new animation and up keep/repairs. It has a lot of cool figures and replicas in it. Lots of cool history.

Some people like was museums, I have always found them creepy and weird. The figures always fall soundly into the Valley of the Uncanny, and besides, I'm not sure I'd pay to see these people in real life, why pay to see them standing? This...More

Was better than I thought it would be. Gambling museum included -just one room. Some informative history. Kids liked it. $11 per person. Kids like $8.

Wax museum was fun for the family. Some of the wax characters do not look very accurate, but it is still worth the money and fun to see.

Well I try to write honest reviews. This wax museum is not horrible but it leaves quite a bit to be desired. We probably would not have went had it not been for a package deal including other activities. I remember going as a child...More

These are the worst wax replicas I've ever seen! Very few were identifiable without looking at the name sign. The lighting is unnecessarily bad & makes the tour unappealing & amateur. Does not measure up to other Tussaud museums. The only plus is the free...More

Unless you are really into wax museums, don't waste your time. The likenesses were horrible and the rooms did not connect.
