Compared with other wax museums I've visited this one paled in comparison. It wasn't too bad though. I liked the Alice in Wonderland section. But I could tell all the figures were fake unlike some I've seen that look very real. Wouldn't go here again but if you're in the area it's worth a one time visit

My kids are older, and they were scared around every corner by the creepy wax figures. I know that might seem obvious, but it even creeped me out. The only reason we went was because the signs on the outside made me think it was the Gangster Museum. They are drawing on the fact that you think it's the good... More

Every corner was another shock. It looked great and the statues were almost alive. The horror section was eerie, I thought something was going to jump out and grab us! The fantasy area was my favorite, the Jack Sparrow was spot on.

Our children asked if we would take them, since we had never been to a wax museum. They thought it was pretty neat, but my husband and I thought the place needed a whole lot of TLC. There were so many faded signs, and so many "people" that didn't even look right. We couldn't get over the fact that Jacqueline... More

The only reason we stopped in was due to the rain. I have seen better wax figures before, and most of the figures are dated. The kids did enjoy seeing the ones they recognized. We enjoyed seeing the history of the building. Don't forget to ask the attendant to show you the 'secret passageway'; you have to ask. The place... More

This does not measure up to any wax museum I have ever visited. Very few actual exhibits. Two rooms plastered with photo copies of news paper articles. Many of the figures did not resemble the real person.

We were passing through Hot Springs and thought we'd stop in the wax museum and look around. It was interesting and not very expensive, however it was not awe-inspiring either. It's a good place to kill some time and has some really cool exhibits, just not very many of them. I'd say it's worth the money just as long as... More

We went by this place the first night we were in Hot Springs and thought we didn't need to spend money on a wax museum. Then we found out that the sight of this place had so much history from the mob scene era in Hot Springs. We were intrigued and decided to pay it a visit. We were so... More

It was much less than I expected after seeing the one in Las Vegas, but it was air conditioned.. the pieces are very old and most kids didn't know who most of them were.. they need updates on the people for sure.. too expensive for the quality... :(
