Wasn't overly excited. Knowledgable guides. But not something I'd be doing again. I did like the way the dungeon tied in to ripleys believe it or not.

The Chamber of Horrors was very interesting and the tour guide was very good at her job. It was like a very entertaining history lesson.

Good collection of models, history is well displayed but a little dated. Underneath "dungeon" and talk was good.

The staff were lovely, but after visiting Madame Tausades in London, this worse than disappointing. But we can see been there done that and don't need to do it again.

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
