It was much more than we expected. Lots of history here. Not just the usual presidents and celebrities, but great composers, early settlers in Florida, even Abraham from the Bible and Cleopatra!!! It is a well done wax museum, worth your time to visit.

This is by far the best wax museum I've ever been to and I've been in a half a dozen all over the country. Some of these reviews are really unfair and strange to me even. For me this wax museum was better than the typical celebrity dominated wax museums that I've been bored to tears with in the past.... More

Very neat! Interesting to see such life-like wax figures of our history!! My kids thought this was fun as well, although they didn't know mich of many of the "people"

This wax museum is very nice but small display. We had fun and took pictures with the characters. I had three teenagers with me and they found it to be nice but " let's not linger "I was told. The price was reasonable and and the location is good, where you can walk to other historical sites,shopping and eateries.

Our family really enjoyed this museum. It was great to walk around with all the historical characters. I just wish they had more famous people of the present!

I thought the display they had here was interesting and fairly well done. It took you through the entire history of the U.S, and included several notable international figures that were very interesting to learn about and see. But I was disappointed in how small it was and how quickly we were able to walk through it. Maybe it would... More

If you going the same night as you ride the holly jolly trolley you get half off the price into the museum. It was great fun. Small but I would pay full price to go again.

I rated this 3 stars but does deserve more for those that are into this stuff. It's neat for sure and takes much craftsmanship to do this but it's just not my thing. Would recommend if this type of stuff is interesting to you.

We bought our tickets through Old Town Trolley Tours at a discounted rate. The wax figures are pretty cool to see. Some look more real than others. I thought the coolest thing was the quotes from many of the historical figures. Some were pretty funny and "tongue in cheek."

We got in for half price since we were taking the Old Town trolley lights tour. I loved reading about each person and the costumes. I thought it was something different to do and we all enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and informative. Entertaining and educational!
