We had a buy one get one free ticket so we decided to visit the wax museum. The museum is quite small so I am glad we received the discount, not sure it is worth $10 each. Looking at the past reviews it appears they have read your complaints and there are no binders to carry around. Not only are... More

I thought it was worth $8.00 (one adult) to see this four room wax museum. I especially liked the many historical figures. Presidents etc.. For any kids or kid at heart as I am, they have Harry Potter and Star Wars wax figures.

We got a discount on our admission so for what we paid this was worth it. Not sure if I would feel the same had we paid full price for the whole family. Most of the wax figures are in really good shape however not all the figures have a label so you have to carry a binder to figure... More

We chose to visit the Potter's Wax Museum as a default because the rain had put a damper on other outdoor activities. It turned out to be a unique and interesting experience. The front of the exhibit holds the remains of the old drugstore which was there before the museum took shape. There are bottles of potions and remedies for... More

My husband and I had visited the museum in 1995. We wanted to take my 9 year old granddaughter and 11 year old grandson. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. We spent about an hour walking through and seeing every figure. We took so many pictures. My grand kids had a blast posing alongside Michael Jordan and Capt. Jack Sparrow and... More

Some of the figures have missing fingers and things but besides that the attraction is interesting. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Currently needs a book to learn about the figures which was difficult to understand. They said they are working on replacing this system with descriptions at each figure.

This was a great exhibit. There are so many wax figures of top quality to look at. The price was very modest so don't hesitate. As wax museums go, this is a very good one. Have yourself some fun and make it a visit highlight.
