This museum was fantastic. Being a history buff getting to see the short version of infamous criminals This is definitely not for children due to the adult nature (blood, guts, murder etc.) of the information and the wax figures. While they weren't high quality figures it was definitely worth the lower price

Campy, but it fits the style. An older style attraction that highlights the exploits of Criminals like Jeffrey Dahmer, and Al Capone. It didn't have any real shock value, but the information was presented in an easily digestible and entertaining manner.

Decades ago I recall Bonnie & Clyde’s bullet-ridden car and memorabilia from other gangsters brought around to county fairs. It was a thrill in the 1950s seeing these items from 30 years earlier. Do young people today know who was Al Capone or Dillinger, or the people they were responsible for killing? Perhaps a better name is Criminals Hall of... More

This was the first wax muesem my wife and I have ever been to. Some of the figures look very life like, the storylike is pretty interesting, and the price is cheap (like $8). Somewhat creepy concept, but an interesting and fun thing to do in the area.

Waste of money. None of the wax figures looked anything like the real people. Only had extremely basic information, nothing interesting. Best part of the entire place is the outside - I suggest you stay there

Interesting little wax museum dedicated to degenerates. It starts out with gangsters and ends with serial killers - both real and fictitious. The characters don't really look real, but they do look creepy, so mission accomplished. The attraction was clean and was had a lot of interesting information. There's even a photo op inside! The final scene was pretty bad... More

Prior to going here, I've heard some mixed things about this place. Me and my friend payed $8 each to walk through which is not a bad price. This attraction can be s bit suspenseful for young kids, since the wax figures, while somewhat old, are admittedly kind of realistic and creepy, especially after reading about what they've done.

I had read reviews of this before going to Niagara Falls. Although some of the reviews bashed it and gave it bad ratings, I found it interesting. There are several other wax museums in the Falls area but this is a dark one. It had little areas dedicated to each criminal or murderer with a little information about them in... More

The outside of this place is nicely done so it catches your eye, don't be fooled the inside looks nothing like the outside. It's dark and hard to see inside and you can't really take pictures as you need the flash, but there is plexiglass in front of the figures so the flash reflects off that and ruins any chances...
