No literally, it smells cheesy when you first walk in but I can overlook that as I love this place! Yes, its outdated... Yes, some of its wax figures are falling apart... Yes, the simpsons couch looks like it hasn't been washed in since never but I will always take a picture with the retro simpsons family. My fave attraction... More

The only thing here was the gift shop at the end that offers wax hand sculptures for a fee. The wax statues of movie stars and personalities were very poorly done. My 11 year old didn't recognize any of them except the scary ones. I would not recommend this attraction at all. Waste of money

Did this as part of the Fun Pass, glad we did not waste the money on actually buying tickets. We were done in about 20 minutes, the best sculpture was of the Joker outside the museum. Nothing inside looked good, even after reading the caption for some I still did not recognize the character. This was the only disappointment of... More

This museum was nothing to write home about. The figures are not that close to the celebrity likenesses they are trying to portray. If you are going to visit, make sure to use a coupon.

NONE of the characters looked like their real-life counterparts. (The Hunger Games ones were insanely awful closely followed by Ocean's 11.AVOID.

My boyfriend and I did the tour last weekend, as he's never done it, so we figured it could be fun :) It wasn't bad, just some of the wax figures really DO NOT look like what they are supposed to lol Even though some of the figures weren't the greatest, we still had fun walking through, joking around and...

we went to the Movieland Wax museum as part of the Clifton Hill fun pass thing. The statues were old and you could see where different body parts were connected to each other. I would not pay to do this attraction (but it was part of our fun pass).

We had a group that varied in ages from 14 to 54. As a group we were not very impressed. The quality of the figures was very poor. We got through the attraction quickly. At the ended there was a haunted house you could go through if you chose to or you could skip it. It wasn't really scary but... More

Super cheesy exhibit. Wax figures are horrible and don't look anything like the real people. Odd mix of people. Would totally skip if it wasn't included in a package we purchased

Luckily this museum was included in a attraction package deal. This wax museum is very poor quality, the wax people don't look like the real person except for one or two. I highly discourage anyone from paying to see this.
