Would never go back, absolutely rammed inside and really a poor experience for the money. Waxworks weren't that great and everywhere was so cramped.

My nieces were so excited to see 'one direction' and I just couldn't get into this. I felt like saying-- hello, these are not real people! I liked the idea of the age of the building and the history of the museum. But I just couldn't appreciate it.

I was pleasantly surprised with this attraction. The atmosphere, decor, staff.. everything was incredible. The visit lasted around 1 hour 15 minutes.. I imagine the time it takes for you to get round depends on the size of your party. The wax works are out of this world and beautifully presented in such a creative way. I would recommend taking...

There are lots of great tourist things in London. Some are pricey, some are free. Go to any of those instead of this. Dire, over-priced, rubbish.

It is usually too crowded and it sure is not cheap but you might be surprised and you will sure have fun visiting this place! It is more than one can expect, mostly when you take the taxi or sit down for a 3D experience. The exhibition in itself could be a bit better if more interactive.

I took my nephew as we are both Star Wars fans. The special exhibit is right at the end. We were both very hot and bothered by the time we got through to that point.
