Wax Museum

Depicts various cultural / sculptures made up of wax. Not worthy to visit is you are not in a leisurely mood. Time to spend would be approx. 30minutes.

Its a great combination of wax statues & musical instruments. Lot of thought gone behind various set / groups, based on the musical instruments - African, Arabian, Orchestra etc. Also on display are some old radios, telephones.....

A sincere attempt by a private individual to copy Madame Tussaud wax museum at Mysore. Some of the pieces are very good. Due to shortage of space and poor lighting, the display quality is poor thereby robbing the hard work of its attraction.

This small museum is located in Siddhartha Layout in Mysore (near Lalitha Mahal Palace, Karanji Lake and the Zoo). Though the gate/ external appearance is not very inviting, the inside is a wonder of wax musicians with real musical instruments collected by the museum owner over many years. There are rock bands, police bands, Indian classical music groups, Jazz bands,... More
