More than a wax museum it is a museum for old musical instruments. The wax mannequins are meant for just holding the musical instruments. The wax models of famous personalities are not there. The "MUSICAL INSTRUMENT" are the main attraction here than the WAX models.

Good collection of musical instruments, however wax statues are average at best. The museum do not get any govt funds, so think like you are doing support to them while visiting this place.

What do you expect when you walk into a wax museum? Wax models of various personalities that look life-like, right? Unfortunately this very basic thing is missing in this museum. All characters look exactly the same irrespective of nationality or region and this robs you of the authenticity of what is being depicted. The only thing worth looking at are... More

I was staying in the vicinity and we strolled to this place, late evening (open only until 7 pm). There was absolutely no one there. It took about 15-20 min to see the whole place with my little one who obviously could not understand anything as the museum is more of an exhibit of musical instruments alongside wax statues of...

If you have exhausted the list of things to do in Mysore and have abundant time to kill, then you might consider visiting this place. For fans of Horror -there is a Horror museum beside though I am not one of them. But apart from that I would not recommend visiting this place . It is first of all it... More

I was very disappointed and was dismayed at the state this place was in and what they call “Wax Art”. After visiting Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and seeing the displays there, this place seemed like a joke. Initially I was very curious and highly excited but this place was a big letdown. A visit to this place was time wasted.
