The Wax Works, is a very neat place to visit. The attraction, is fun year around, even in the rain season. Newport, is a fun place to live, and vacation in. I recommend, this attraction . I enjoy visiting, the wax work museum.

Parts of this attraction were interesting but not enough to go back again. A lot of this would likely be too scary for younger kids. It's like a weird mix of wax figures, movie scenes, and a haunted house. If you are really intent on seeing it buy the single ticket (not the three attraction pass - see my other... More

There are many wax figures of stars and some of different things. Not as realistic as madam Tussauds by all means.

This is a place I will only visit once. It isn't interesting enough to visit again. Did like the American Idol area where you could sing for the judges. The lifelikeness of the wax statues is impressive. Once through is enough for me though.

We absolutely loved this wax museum! The figures were made to look more real than most wax museums. Price was discounted when purchasing The Wax Works, Aquarium and Ripley's together and it was very reasonable!

Kids had fun, I laughed through the whole thing. Admission is a little steep for what you get to see, but the kids will have a good time.

Kids enjoyed walking through it, takes about 20-30 mins, it was a lot of fun... You buy a 3 attraction pass for this and Ripleys as well as undersea gardens.

I loved how the old scenes were still there and they put in a bunch of new stuff to look at. and the american idol stage was so fun to be able to sing with the family and pick your own songs.
