“Amazing how real they look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I had a wonderful experience seeing the artwork of those who were able to duplicate the very likeness of many stars, idols and public figures. Be sure to take a picture with the Obama's!

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

we went as a family and loved it. My boyfriend was very interested in the presidents section, I on the other hand loved the celebrity part of it. It was great because it had both of our interests. you could touch them too and they even had accessories you could put on for pictures. we were probably there about an hour....so it is a little pricey....we did get a groupon though

“Had such a fun time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

I had so much fun with my husband.. We had a Groupon which made it even better! It was kind of creepy how much of a likeness the figures are. Would totally go again and take more time to go through and get more pictures...

“Worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

This museum kept you constantly looking for who was moving (fellow visitors) and who was on display! The museum is well done and it was nice that you could get so close to the displays for great souvenir photos. We bought a multi-pass ticket (ticket to Madame Toussauds, Museum of Crime and Punishment and National Aquarium, to be used within 3 days of purchase) which saved us a lot of money and allowed us to see all 3 museums.
