This was so good. Hard to believe that they weren't real. So many celeb's to see. You will be amazed at just how life like they look I know I was. Well worth a visit.

What a lovely time strolling through the fantastic wax museum. The effort put into every person was terrific. The historical information and knowledge of the guide was amazing and entertaining at the same time. Well priced.

Thanks for your comments. We are not Madame Tusords. Your comparison to Madame Tussauds is a complement to us. The touchable figures of Madame Tussauds are not solid Wax as wax is as brittle as a candle.

Yes they are.. honestly, I didn’t enjoy the wax figures.. The medieval tour was interesting though. Overall not worth the money. The Madame Tussaud’s museum in Sydney is more realistic and enjoyable
