Surprisingly good. Has collection from a music lover. Musical instruments collected from all over thhe world with statues. Visit this for the musical instruments and not for wax statues.Slightly dilapidated building as it receives no funding other than its patron.

They would charge you for seeing silly models holding musical instruments throughout. The artist seems to be fascinated with musical instruments so you can see them all over the place.Some from africa,arab,latin america blah blah. It was boring. We just ran across to finish it off. There is a horror museum with yuck looking modela.Please dont take your kids in... More

This is a private wax museum. It says house of horrors, but there is also a house of melodies in the same location! The museum features music cultures from around the world! An interesting effort! Plan for spending not more than 45 minutes here!

While coming back from Chamundeshwari temple our taxi driver took us to Wax museum along with horror world. Although it was there on our itinery but we had not given any preference to visit wax museum. The interiors are average and anyone can feel that the museum has not been updated since long. Kids will get bore & would like... More

Only 3 of the wax figures looked life like (Gaundi, and the 2 Maharajahs) The others looked more like wax applied on top of manikins.

Though local people insist you to visit this place, I found this place to be much hyped. There is nothing much to see apart from few reflections of Indian art and music history. There were some non-wax antics items also displayed. All in all ok kind of place.

Melody World Wax Museum contains rich stock of wax statues and musical instruments. There are more than 100 wax statues mostly depicting musicians of different genres, styles and regions. It looks that cleaning of statues is not done on regular basis so some of them look dusty. Surroundings of statues are rooms having worn out paints and chipped off plaster,... More

You should visit this museum only if you are music lover . It should be named properly as mentioned in Trip advisor . I was misguided. Don't try to venture into horror word , it's absolute wastage of money and time

This is one of the worst places I have ever been. It's dirty, all the wax dolls look almost similar, and ugly!. If you do not have any other job to do then this is the place for you!. In summary It's an absolute waste of time!
