No, this is not Madame Tussauds London or New York. It's a little museum in Dublin....and it is really cool and worth a visit. There are lots of interesting things....history, science, horror. A lot of the celebs are Irish....which should be no surprise. Interactive with touch screens. History of the figures and scenes is very well done. We enjoyed it... More

Highly disappointed with the museum, much smaller then I imagined especially the childrens area a few plastic characters thought I had missed the childrens area initially. Santy was a nice touch though.

Was expecting so much more. The only exhibit I enjoyed was the horror room. The rest was just thrown together. The inclusion of some people is also very questionable. Our rich history has produced many people of better character than dunphy, gerry ryan and Gay byrne. Its laughable to also have ahern and paisley as exhibits! I was embarrassed by... More

My 13yr old son loved this. Models looked like the person in most cases. Imaginative displays and a good mix of activities.

We spent the afternoon walking around the wax works. Very interesting and enjoyable. The hall of fame was great and so was the music room. I would definitely recommend that you go.

Went there with my teenage kids and we had fun. Most of the characters were recognizable though needed a bit more finishing touches to them. Some was very good (like Freddy) We did enjoy the stories that are being told in each of the different rooms and the fact that it is housed in an old bank building with the... More

It starts with a little Irish history. There is some "Child" room, scary rooms and a room with "some famous people and characters". It's an okay price, would go as fare as say it's cheap. Good value. We use around two hours here. You could use leas and more. Depending on what you want to get out if you visit.... More

The exhibits were very good for the most part. Irish writers and history was very well covered. No guide needed as each room you went into had a voice over and each of the statues had a card with information about them. The Chamber of Horrors is not for the little people and it does warn you. Kids area is... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. Very glad to hear you enjoyed yourself, we feel as though the fact that the tour is self-guided allows for people to take it at their own pace, spending more or less time in each room as they see fit. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the Irish Heroes... More
