While we were walking on Clifton Hills we stopped at the Movieland Wax Museum. We always hit one of these when we tour. This one was strictly about the movies and very good. The characters were very life like and we took our photos with many of them. My husband has a scooter and the museum had an elevator so... More

I purchased the Clifton Hill Fun Pass which included admission to the museum. Some of the actors and musicians were unrecognizable. Had there not been signs stating their names, I wouldn't have known who I was looking at. George Clooney? That's George Clooney!? There are multiple themed rooms such as horror, drama, criminal, musicians, etc... It takes 15 minutes to... More

This wax museum was included in our Fun Pass and took about 20 minutes to go through. The wax statues barely resembled anything. Most of the time, we would not have guessed the star if it wasn't for their names written beside them. Half of this "Museum" was a haunted house. The poorly indicated exit (a door that looks like...

We visited this place but didn't like it. If you don't mind looking at celebrity statues that look "almost" like the real person but not quite, then, you may go but likely you will be disappointed because this place needs to be updated. I visited way better and more real wax museums.

This place seems to be meant for kids who probably wouldn't mind celebrity statues not looking like the real person. Very crappy wax museum, don't waste your money. Needs major updates.

Our family visited the Niagara falls area yesterday before the kids go back to school and paid a visit to this wax museum :( It was such a let down. I would say that if you're lucky there were 6 figures out of the entire cast of characters that looked like the actual movie star. We've been to much better... More

My boyfriend and I live in the area and felt like doing something after dinner so we decided to give this a try. It took us about a half hour because we stopped and made fun of everything. Some were worse than others.. Cough* Ace Ventura cough* Simpsons* cough. It was disgusting seeing all the prints on these sculpture that... More

This is one of my favorite attractions at Niagara falls. This attraction is especially kid friendly because of the talking Egyptian statue at the front of the attraction. As mentioned in some of the reviews here, there are some wax figures that need to be updated. But, there are some wax figures that look amazing and very realistic. Unlike other... More

I was here 10 years ago and was sad to see it has barely been updated! Like other reviewers said here, most of the statues are laughable! Some fingers were peeling, bad wigs, etc. When people mention taking their pictures with the statues, it should be noted that you cannot actually get that close to most of them to touch... More

We enjoyed this museum a little scary with loud noises at times but overall it is a good museum to visit. It was quite interesting to visit and it was enjoyed for the most part.
