Entertaining,but not a great museum

The wax figures are pretty terrible, but it was really enjoyable to walk through and make fun of everything, but if you don't want to spend the money then don't go.

Not sure if I'm spoiled from after visiting Ripleys wax museums but this wasn't worth the $10 per person in my opinion. The quality just wasn't there and the tour is small.

I have been visiting this museum for 35 years. When I was there about 8 years ago, it had started to look run down. We I returned for a visit this month, I was glad to see that there had been quite a bit of work done and it looked a lot better. I hope they continue to keep this... More

We visited this museum because the kids wanted to see it, but it wasn't worth the cost of the tickets. The museum is quite dated and looks dusty and old. The hallways are narrow and dark and there are several sets of stairs that would be difficult for some to navigate. Some of the scenes have a sound recording that... More

got this with the combo ticket and did not know that you must climb stairs to see the attraction. well. I cant climb stairs and the young person that was working did not really care that I just wasted money on something that I could not participate in. As I m sitting there waiting on the rest of my party... More

First thing I have to say is that the building is not ADA accessible. There is a set of stairs (probably 25 or so) to start the tour, and 10-15 to end it. We bought the combo pack (several different attractions for one price), and members of our party couldn't even do the museum. There is an escalator on the... More

The building was interesting. It has a lot of history to it. It was interesting reading about it and learning some things. The wax people were neat to see. It felt kind of dingy in there but it was probably due to the age of the building. It was ok though.

I dont think this was worth $10 person.it would have been $50 for our family so we just let our 10 year old and 16 year old go. My 10 year old said it was scary because they have it too dark and made out to be spooky. Other than that they liked it.

Started off interesting then was real dark in walkways and scary for little ones. Figures looked very old and outdated.

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.
