Average wax museum

I have been to a few wax museums around the world and this one seems to be pretty average as far as quantity of wax statues goes. It only took about 10-15 minutes to go through... read more

Not as lifelike up close as they are from afar, but a good range of celebrities. Kids got abit bored though.

Although we have been here at The Wax museum before, it never seems to amaze us how life like everything is. We noticed things that we missed last time and could see them anew.

Through no fault of the staff or the owners for that matter. The wax is a different product to that used in the most famous wax museum in the world namely Madame Tussauds. Therefore touching the models is not allowed, all exhibits are behind glass. Nevertheless there was a guided tour of the "macabre" which proved interesting and gave value... More

Maybe I have been spoiled as I have visited Madame Tussauds in London, but this was absolutely terrible! And so expensive for a family.

Was disappointed as you couldn't get photos with the wax figures, the chamber of tortures was very interesting and the tour guides tried to make it more entertaining by cracking jokes but unfortunately it was all still a bit boring. I think the place needs to be modernised and that the owners need to think of a way to make... More

I have been to a few wax museums around the world and this one seems to be pretty average as far as quantity of wax statues goes. It only took about 10-15 minutes to go through the whole building and look at each statue. At least it was cheap.

I visited the Wax Museum with my family in April. I absolutely enjoyed it! There are 2 parts to the museum. The second level is all the wax sculptures of famous celebrities and the downstairs is the chamber of horrors. There is a guided tour of the chamber of horrors. The only thing is that it could be a little... More
