The museum has wax models made by an artist named Sunil. The wax models are good (not that great compared to the original madame tussauds models, but the art is really nice).

I had missed this on many of my trips to Lonavala and Pune. This time, I went there, since it was close to a hotel I was staying at. While the place stands out because it offers a different experience in Lonavala, if you have been to the original ones in London and NY, you would be truly underwhelmed. There... More

The Museum has around 40 wax statues and few of them resembles exactly to the celebrities and legends. Museum charges Rs.100/- per person for the visit. Duration of the visit was not more than 30 minutes. Statues which we saw was of Mother Teresa, Kapil dev, Anna Hazare, A R Rehman, etc

The Wax museum has statues of many prominent leaders, sportsman and actors including Anna Hazare, Angelina Jolie, Shri Narendra Modi, Kapil Dev, Adolf Hitler, Mother Teresa, etc. The charge of visiting the museum is not worth as the duration was for 10 to 15 minutes for Rs.100/- per person.

some statues are ok but rest very poorly crafted by the artist...the entry ticket is Rs.100 after looking at the statues one might think 25 to 50 max would be right...one can skip this place

Was pleasantly surprised, as we went in mostly to cut the heat of the day and for the air conditioning. Most of the wax statues are life like and some even had eyes that come alive. Good place to spend some time Is got good parking to But the entrance ticket at rs100 is a bit steep.
