One can have a look at this museum, though it is quite modest. It is spread over three small floors. It is based on religious themes. Don't miss the splendid view from the balcony on top floor.

The wax museum was a bit disappointing. There were five floors but only the two first characters were well done. The view at the top of the building was very nice and made the walk up worthwhile. There was an elevator. I would not recommend the museum.

Our visit was worth. The Audio headset made it so convenient, especially for our 11 yr old. It was like living during that time. Loved the candle that I picked from the souvenier shop at the Museum.

I went there for the first time this march and was quite fascinated to see the real life resemblance.

we went there as a group and it was a good trip we all enjoyed the museum tour in English and the statues were just incredible the only things was that the lift was a bit small but we managed to deal with that too and we would recommend that to anyone who thinks about going.

I visited this interesting wax museum this afternoon and enjoyed seeing the scenes pertaining to Jesus and Saint Bernadette. At the museum exit, on the 5th floor there is a terrace with a panoramic view of Lourdes with St: Michels bridge; the castle and the Sanctuary.

i only went to this place because it was part of a tour to Pic du Jer. it was a waste of time because I thought it was hokey. You are given heads sets to explain the various exhibitions (scenes from the life of Bernadette, the Bible) which I found grotesque. I couldn't wait to get out! Every great city... More
