This was my fourth time in the museum over more than 20 years. As a teenager, I loved classic movies but to my teenager The Breakfast Club is a classic movie, so she did not know most of the celebrities in the museum. She did like the horror, torture, and fairy tale areas and some of the history displays were... More

The wax museum is pretty run down. The exhibits are all in tight closed spaces and nothing is really good for taking photos with. I visited the Madame Tussauds in New York and it was spectacular. I was saddened to learn that they aren't run by the same family. They have added a gambling portion to the museum, as a... More

Fun for kids and adults - there is also lots of information on the old Southern Club which is the building where the wax museum is located which is an interesting part of Hot Springs. Is a self guided tour - takes about 45 minutes to an hour. You can detour around the scary exhibits.

I could forgive the dirty venue if the wax figures even began to resemble the people they represent, but they don't. I mean, seriously recognizable people like MLK, Jr. and Princess Di are not recognizable without their name tags. It was the worst example of a tourist trap, and at $40 for my family of four, it was a rip... More

$10 a person isn't bad if you have 45 minutes to spare. I had never seen a wax museum so I didn't mind the hokiness. Yes, most characters are pretty far fetched. But others you recognize right away. It's an interesting little place. We liked the scary walk most.

A little short for the price. It looks good. Might want to stop by if you have extra time. But there is a lot better things to do in Hot Springs

Kinda cheesy but fun anyway. I liked it. I had trouble with the stairs as I have to use a walker or a cane.

They had great idea layouts but most barely favored the people they were suspose to be. Price is a lot cheaper than most wax museums I've visited but as they say... Sometimes you get what you pay for.
