the melody world wax museum in is one of the must visit spots in mysore. the museum contains statues related to music and still some commercials. but the main disadvantage is that it contains only few statues, and the place can be maintained still better, so that it would attract many tourists. the entire museum is dingy dark which has...

Wax museum is a an amazing collection of musical instruments from all over the world and the best attraction is the figurine holding these are all made of wax. These have been painstakingly made through the years without any govt or private support which is visible in the museum condition. My advise to fellow travelers - Please do visit it... More

The wax work is not too great, but the collection of musical instrument from almost every part of the world, makes this place a treat for music lovers....There are couple of good wax statues as well, particularly of Gandhiji and Maharaja Wadiyaar... Can be a good informative & fun... More

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.

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

It is a small museum having wax structures of different kinds of culture( musical). Nothing much to see here but good effort by the artist. There is a horror world adjacent to the museum. The kids may be scared but it is not scary at all.

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
