Wandered in to see what kind of place this was. The lady working there was very kind & helpful and accepted my Finnish student card and gave me a student discount. It was interesting to learn about the history of Ireland through the wax figures, and being into horror the Chamber of Horrors was a very pleasant surprise for me.

The wax museum was a great history lesson of Ireland. The lower level was the vaults of the old Bank of Ireland and provided a perfect place to show the history of the country. Would recommend for all ages.

Visited with my husband and two kids aged 3 and 6, my kids were a little scared of the wax works and also the tunnel in the kids area. It was a nice visit, friendly staff but some of the wax work collections could do with being updated and more recent Irish sports stars and movie stars being added, overall... More

We visited the wax museum today and had a great time A group of Spanish school kids were ahead of us and they enjoyed it as much as we did For me it was a trip down memory lane with our politicians of yesterday in full view

Even as adults, my boyfriend and I loved the National Wax Museum Plus, so this attraction isn't just for kids. I was genuinely surprised to see how many negative reviews its received. Although the museum could stand to expand itself and update some of its wax figures, it's still a fantastic spot for a day of fun and learning about... More

This was a great way to start a day of sightseeing. So many wax works to take pics with. My tween loved it! There's an area at the top which has a recording studio and the chance to film yourself in a music video which she loved too. The tunnel and the science areas are great for kids too.

I have been to other wax museums but this one has recorded messages for each room making it, in my opinion, better than others. The chamber of horrors was a bit intense for my ten year old because of the movement. I liked the history included in the room commentaries. Glad we visited.
