This place was really cool. They have personalities from Vicente Fernandez to Justin Bieber. They have Mexican television start, sport legends, and international stars. Me and my kids had a great time very family oriented, and safe.

I have never been to a wax museum before so I was very atonish by it's size and art! There is an Alex Sintek wax figure that is singing, and also has a mirror maze. La vecindad del Chavo is great!!! The good thing is that you can also go to the Ripley's Museum it's side by side and you... More

Well I have read some of the reviews and I can say that I liked going to the museum of wax. I have been to the Maddame tousands in NYC and San Antonio and let me tell you that this museum is much nicer. Obviously the characters in this place are not familiar to every person because they are mainly... More

If you have time in DF, take a moment to know this place. It's very fun, but some of celebrities are not very similar and it has many other local celebrities. The tickets are a little bit expensive, but it's your chance if you've never been in a place like this.

Its a museum you would go if you have small children. They have a lot of celebrities, but the quality is not that of Madame Tussauds. There are very good recreations of celebrities, but some are not that good. Also there are a lot of national and latin celebrities, I went with foreign friends and 30% of the statues they... More

Most of the wax figures were very realistic. You can pose with the figures which are life sized. Lots of Mexican famous people but also included Americans such as Michael Jackson, Lady Ga Ga, Meryl Streep and Obama (would rather have seen George W Bush...no offense...just not a fan of Obama). We made a wax casting of our hands holding... More

Poor quality of the display, cheap expressions not worth the time. The only thing which is awesome is the old mansion hosting this museum

The entry fee is well worth it considering you can include both Ripley's museum and this one in one ticket and get a discount. There is pretty much at least something for everyone to see here, even kids. Don't expect anything completely mind-blowing, but it is an interesting visit. Try to avoid food there, though. Expensive and not at all... More

I think it was a waste of money and time, I did not like and find it interesting at all. Not even for the kids.
