I thought it was a waste of our time and money. Most of the wax figures did not look like the people they were supposed to represent. It looked really old, tired and dirty.

This place is just okay. If u want to bring your kids its cool at least once. The price is a little steep for how small it is. With the discount in their book its $18 for two people.

The best part of this museum is the history surrounding Al Capone and a local named Madden - For the most part, the museum figures did not look anything like any picture I've ever seen of them.

Educational yet a bit creepy. But it's good for kids who are curious about stuff. I think the price should be less because it wasn't that big anyway. And I hope they will put more lights inside coz it looks like a horror house.

There weren't many wax figures but what they had was ok. The place is small but the price was cheap so I say it evens out in the end. Parking sucks unless you're paying.

We went to the museum as part of our road trip, thinking it would be cool. However, all the figures were outdated and a lot of them didn't look much like they should-- some of them hardly looked like real people. The building is run-down and the lighting is terrible, making it very hard to take pictures and making an... More

The wax museum really needs to be updated but it was really interesting to walk through and the wax figures look very real.

My third trip recently (once as child, once as young adult, once as parent of teenager)- very few changes! Even less dusting- achoo! Noticed another reviewer question about Ronald Reagan missing- saw on roadsideamerica.com that previous owners sold him! Our kids weren't impressed except with Jack Sparrow! -he was new to me since my last visit too. Teens liked the... More

Don't miss it, even if it is dated and silly, it's a treasure for oddity lovers! I have visited it three times now and it's so quirky and weird and wonderful. Yes it's old, but it makes you think about the hay day of not springs and how wonderful it must have been. I love the vintage quality it has.

Was not overly impressed with this place. Old and drab. In need of some TLC. Went because my mom likes these kind of places when we are on a trip and she was not that impressed either. Want be going again unless there is much improvement.
