I bring all my friends and relatives -who come over to Dublin- to this place. History, literature, myths, the famine period, politicians, sport, music, the Jedwards. ...what else one may wish???? Perfect way to spend a lazy but nice afternoon. Can't recommend this place enough.

I had been to the national wax museum in Dublin 10 years back and in comparison to Madame Tussauds Museum, the exhibits were not great then. When I visited the museum again in July 2014, I was hoping that the exhibits might have improved now but was a bit disappointed by the quality of the exhibits again.

Went with my partner we loved it. Has a mix of history horror science kids and celebrities. Any age would enjoy it would advise not to let kids go to the horror section as it would really frighten them unless there really able for scary things!

I was quite excited to be revisiting the Wax museum as i hadn't been since i was a child.....imagine my surprise when i recognised some of the exhibits!! Some of the likenesses would be hard to get away with in the dark, the 'Hall of Fame' exhibits were so outdated it was almost as if the bins had been raided... More

Having been to other wax museum's, this one was very average. Some of the works do look a-like, however the majority don't, should have known by the low price! Good to listen to the history though.

I visited the National wax works yesterday - it was a wonderful way to spent 1 1/2 hour. The different rooms are well laid out and the descriptions were very interesting and informative.

Although the history part was grand, the hall of fame at the end was just dire. Felt like it full of rejects of other waxy museums. The wax factor was great fun though - but I would not recommend it at all!

An amazing mixture of history, science, entertainment and social culture. Although some of the exhibits were not working the room commentaries are worthwhile. It was odd that some 'people' were missing but perhaps that is a permission thing. There are a lot of stairs so access might be problematical for those with physical disabilities. The staff were very friendly and... More

Went on a day trip to Dublin and as we had never been to a wax works before thought we would give it a try. Worst decision ever. Models were really bad, didn't resemble characters at all, some we had to read the information plaques to figure out who they were. Very political making visitors like ourselves feel extremely uncomfortable.... More
