This cost me and my 3 children €35. We were finished in 35 minutes. Boring, over priced and simply thrown together. Definitely will not be back.

Spent €24 entrance for 2 people. Would not recommend this for anyone! Some of the Wax people/dolls are not that good - not very life like! Done the 'tour' in about 35mins! Went into the science zone majority of stuff didn't work! It's alright if you want to kill a bit of time but in no way is it right... More

My other-half and I went here to kill some time before our returning train home from a weekend break to Dublin. Sadly we were disappointed by this attraction. The layout was confusing and hard to follow, and if I'm really honest most of the exhibitions were rather creepy! It was very dark, it felt as though it was a set... More

Paid a visit to the wax museum in Dublin, Was reasonably good although some sections need repairs, eg, model train does not move, and some science hands on devices were broken, But overall worth a visit.

You take a self guided tour of Irish history and it's most notable authors, athletes and stars. Great area for children to see some of their faviorate charcters and interact with some simple science. Alhough it does seem a buit 'budget', It really is a fun way to spend a bit of time in Dublin.

Went here on a wet Monday lunchtime. Staff kindly let us have student discount despite leaving our cards in bristol. Wax models not of high quality, many chipped and worn. Science exhibit upstairs, 1 in 5 exhibits worked. Most where faulty, broken or missing. Layout was confusing and hard to follow. Would avoid unless you have money to waste or... More

It starts out with famous Irish men and then moves on to horror then to children themed things. The grand finale is the celebrities. I have been to better wax museums but this was a fun break from all the history tours and castles. It was really affordable as well.

A lil over priced for what's in store. Figured I'd give it a go. Interestingly enough it does take you through a historical tour of Ireland......at the start, then there's just random wax figures everywhere and anywhere really. Horror section was pretty cool, honestly the wax figures themselves are really poor but you can't expect much if it isn't Mademe... More

Went to the wax museum with my two young daughters and quite enjoyed it although it is a bit pricey to get in.The chamber of horrors is pretty cool with moving wax works which terrified my kids so much they went back in three times.The gift shop is fairly poor and also expensive.The staff however are brilliant and always happy...

You will be disappointed if you are expecting a madame tussauds type exhibition, children may find it OK but not one for the adults, give this a miss there are much better things to do the Dublin than visit here.
