I went to the Hollywood Wax Museum in Tennessee, USA and thought this one may be along the same lines. It was not. I don't mean to be extremely critical, but the wax figures were very off (in my opinion) and did not resemble the celebrities they were supposed to look like. Also, I had NO idea that this was...

This walk through museum is very neat, and provides about a 10-15 minute journey (If you take pictures and such). Everyone from movies that we all know. I do not however think that it is worth to just buy a ticket to this attraction, after all, it is just wax, but the characters do look somewhat... realistic. Try buying the... More

This was part of the Clifton Hill Fun Pass. The pass is otherwise an amazing value. This place was sad. A lot of the figures were hard to recognize due to being poorly crafted. Waste of time.

The Movieland Wax Museum of the Stars was a disappointment. The wax figures are so poorly done, we had a hard time recognizing the actors. It was a waste of time and we literally ran through it in under 10 minutes. We purchased the Clifton Hill Fun Pass and a visit to the Moveland Wax Museum was included and it... More

We bought the Clifton Hills Pass which included this attraction. The Pass is worth it, without the pass, pass by this Wax Museum. Many figures didn't look realistic. A few had town clothes or parts missing or hanging off. Some of the poses are awkward. The best part was the haunted house near the end. It had a few interactive... More

Overpriced and at least half of the figures didn't look like who they were supposed to be. I expected to not have to look at the name tag to figure out who they were. Very small and not many new characters.

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...
