Needs updating

I have went here several times and I wish they would update it. There is the same exhibits every time I go.

Not great for spending $10 plus tax per person. We have seen better. Don't think we would do it again on a return trip. Def wouldn't go if there was a line. Not worth the wait.

Spooky how you will be talking with companions and it's a George Bush or someone who you thought was another person. Definitely has the feel of another era but can be a teaching tool about history, too.

I visited the wax museum in 1995, and other than a wax figure of President Obama, nothing has changed. The figures are terribly outdated and covered in dust. If you were born after 1975, you've most likely never heard of the majority of the people depicted in wax. This place needs an update and a major cleaning. Red velvet curtain... More

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.
