This cinematic Monster museum is dedicated to all those who have entertained us in the world of Horror, Fantasy and Sci-Fi! Actors, directors and special effects wizards of the past and present are all honored here with over 60 life-sized realistic recreations of the horror's genre's most memorable characters. With NEW yearly additions it is safe for all. During OCTOBER, the monsters come to life making Count Orlok's Nightmare Gallery Salem's Scariest Haunted house but during the rest of the year, the monsters are quite calm and won't move at all. See you soon!!! Be sure to CHECK OUR CALENDAR on our site for times to best enjoy your visit!

Interesting movie facts. Staff friendly. Slightly overpriced. Short but interesting. One of the better places to go.

I would definitely recommend visiting Count Orlok's Nightmare Gallery if you are a horror movie fan or even not. The exhibit provides interesting information about the movies, actors and characters over horror movie history. It is a short exhibit, but definitely cool and unusual.

My husband is a major scary movie fan. He starts the Halloween countdown in early summer and watches a scary movie every night. He's big in movie scores and costumes and directors and effects so he was in his glory here. It's a quick walk through if you're not into movie facts and scary stuff, but for a horror film... More

How can you have a place as cool as this and tell people they can't take pictures? The biggest wax museum chain in the world, Madam Tussaud's, let's people take as many pictures as they want. I am a HUGE horror fan and walking through there without being able to take pictures was torture. They claim it's because if people... More

Short but sweet. A must see if you love horror or sci-fi. However, skip the opportunity to purchase the extended pass that includes chamber of terrors.

This is Madam Tussaud's for the horror film buff. The square footage is small, but it is jam-packed with wax figurines of all your favorite horror movie monsters and characters - from the silent movie days of Phantom of the Opera through the Universal monster movies of the 30s and 40s to the Hammer Studios films of the 50s-70s to...

I really enjoyed myself. Not frightening but more a history about the movies. Just go check it out if like horror movies then I think you will enjoy a walk down memory lane.

It's meh. The horror movie characters inside are great quality, but don't expect more than a 10 minute walk through of a horror wax museum.

The realism of the figures and props on display is rivalled only by the owner's knowledge and enthusiasm! Well done!

Our family couldn't decide between this and the Chamber of Terror so we did the combo ticket for a few dollars more. The exhibits were incredible. Don't rush it. Recognized every single character. A few surprised me.
