The orchestra, the emperors, kings of Mysore in the museum reflects natural exhibits of Karnataka. The museum contains most of indian / western musical instruments. beyond the local audio systems. the exhibit made of wax and the original musical instruments set there for a plya by us is very superb.

Not a worthy place...time waste..it is completely outdated.. We must have seen enough in normal exhibitions as well..they may have to consider to put something else as well.

It was an average museum. Visitors with higher expectation can skip this place. Almost all designs are related to Music and Music Instruments, except 2 - one Maharaja of Mysore and another Mahatma Gandhi. There is a fees of Rs. 30 per person. And it takes about 20-30 Minutes to cover this museum.

First a warning- there is a Horror museum as well alongside the wax museum. Just ignore that, it is such a waste of time and money. No horror inside, people were more horrified of the fact that it had no visibility inside and they might fall, we had to use mobile phone to find the way. Coming to Wax Museum... More

With uncoordinated music playing through the background and poorly lit surroundings, this made more of a spooky place than a museum. Wax statues were not well-sculpted, their finishing was not up to the mark and... More

They had statues of musicians from different eras. The statue was made from wax but the instrument that they used were all real. They also had radios from different eras. Entrance fee was Rs.30.

If you are in Mysore and can spare some time, this place is worth a visit. Do not compare it with the famous wax museums of the world. Also, do not assume that any wax museum should have wax statues of personalities. If you go with that expectation, you will be disappointed. The theme of this museum is music, and... More
