Me and my friend found that place by accident and are so happy we did. You can really spend hours there being amazed how true those wax people are. Had tons of fun! Plus the lady in the front reception was so lovely! :)

If you can get in free on your Dublin Pass go but this is not worth the entrance fee. The waxworks aren't the greatest and many don't really have strong resemblances. A high point for me was a political scene where John Major a 6' man had been given the body of a small boy and a little bean head... More

Thanks for your review! Sorry hear you didn't enjoy your visit to the National Wax Museum Plus. You of course are entitled to your own opinion, but we currently work with a lovely Irish artist and the resemblance of our figures entirely depends on his own imagination. Having said that, I guess our museum isn't for everyone. Thanks again for... More

Thanks for your review! Sorry to hear you didn't completely enjoy your visit to the museum. Your correct, children love visiting the museum and really enjoy the variety we have on offer. Having said that, a large number of adults have enjoyed themselves too. I'm sorry we failed to meet your expectations, but I guess we're not for everyone. Kind... More

I've heard mixed reviews from numerous people abs having visited a number of Madame Tussauds over the years I was not expecting a lot. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The cost... More

I really liked it, never been and always intended to go so was delighted to finally go. Only down side was that it's a bit expensive
