What a lovely time strolling through the fantastic wax museum. The effort put into every person was terrific. The historical information and knowledge of the guide was amazing and entertaining at the same time. Well priced.

We did a tour of upstairs. Although we could work out the wax models they weren't that lifelike. All displays are behind glass so no interaction. The horror chamber tour was okay. I don't think it is worth the money you pay for.

Thanks for your visit to The Wax Museum. It is pleasing to read that there are people out there that have met Captain Cook, Gandhi and Johnny Depp just to name a few. All the best.

Good way to spend a wet afternoon. The tour of the torture chamber was interesting. The many ways humans hate humans. The ones upstairs were ok. Some looked like the people they were ment to portray. Others were nothing like. Wouldn't do this again.

Yes they are.. honestly, I didn’t enjoy the wax figures.. The medieval tour was interesting though. Overall not worth the money. The Madame Tussaud’s museum in Sydney is more realistic and enjoyable
