Such an array of wax figures and associated memorabilia. A good and gruesome tour downstairs too for those who can stomach it. Definitely worth a look.

Yes the Chamber of Horrors is very interesting and informative. Sorry you missed Jacki Chan, so many people love taking their photos and interacting with him.

This was so good. Hard to believe that they weren't real. So many celeb's to see. You will be amazed at just how life like they look I know I was. Well worth a visit.

The museum is not very big, but quite entertaining. Some of the figures look very real, but some are hard to recognize, apparently it's because they were made out of wax like they did in old times. Staff was helpful and friendly. I loved the...More

Great way to spend a couple of hours. Friendly staff with a good attitude. Top half is self guided and it's mainly famous figures. Half are extremely well done and the rest are pretty average. There is a noticeable difference. The bottom story is a...More

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
