I visited the wax museum in July with my boyfriend as I had fond memories of it from a child. The whole museum was very dissappointing, we had expected to spend a hour round it but it only took us 20 minutes. The figures were not laid out very well. In particular the model of gerry ryan just had a... More

very aged looking displays. some totally out of place exhibits too. not quite sure what the aim is. if it is to waste peoples time and take their cash for as little as possible then they have succeeded greatly.

This museum is not very good value for money, as most of the exhibits are a bit tired, and are not particularly up to date. There are a lot of Irish celebrities featured though. A good place to go to find out about famous Irish scientists.

It cost us £44 for a family for ten minute trip around the place. The wax models were not like the real person. The rooms were so tiny that you had to queue to get in and because it was really busy we just bypassed the room and went ahead. Certainly did not think it was value for money. Sorry

Enjoyed the time we spent at the Wax museum. Lots of well known irish celebreties in there with lots more to come. You can even record your own x factor type audition and buy the dvd in the shop on the way out.

We went to madame tussaudes wax museum last month and it wasn't a patch on this, there was so much to see and the figures were so realistic! You really shouldn't miss it if your in the area, it was about 10euro each I think to get in.
