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

The museum is old but funny at the same time as the statues are like rejects from madame tussauds. But on the plus side it is set out well and give information you might not know otherwise. All in all worth a few euros

I wondered into the museum purely by accident, first thing, one morning. I was alone, so I felt like I had he place to myself. The exhibition started with scenes of Bernadette and her encounter with the apparition. It then moved to scenes from the Bible, specifically, Jesus' birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension. It finally culminated with an encounter... More

I expected to see scenes from the Lourdes apparition but apart from approx.5 scenes the rest were related to the life and passion of Christ. In Malta we have much better representations which are set up during the Holy Week.

This museum is worth a visit to admire its wax figures and the view at the top, though do not expect anything grandiose because you'll be let down. It is one of the stops of the Petite Train. If you plan to see all the attractions in the train's route, buy the tickets in bulk from the Petite Train stop... More

the figures were very life like however it is supposed to be the life of Bernardette and not the life of Our Lord Jesus

I was a little disappointed as I expected the museum to be much bigger. But the entrance is cheap so it's still worth a visit ( I paid 6 eur with my hotel discount).
