Very interesting museum. It had quite a few wax figures which was nice to see. It was a mix of Czech figures and international ones. I like the part where they showed how people looked like in the old days and drank in the pub or worked in the mines. The wax figues were looked very realistic which spooked me out a few times.
It was a short exhibition though, which we finished looking through very quick.

So the museum seems poor but in fact there is more. The wax figurines are placed in a creepy and almost scareful environment, each in each context. It is an interesting experience...

In this museum, you can find some traditional craftsmen (a fisherman, a blacksmith)and anonymous folks together with some Czech mysterius figures (the White Lady, Golem), artists (Kafka, Smetana), kings (Rudolf II, Charles IV) and presidents (Masaryk, Havel) who quietly share the space with some contemporary celebrities from the Czech Republic (Hůlka, Saudek) and abroad (Tina Turner, Louis Armstrong, etc.)

Where: The museum is close to the square.
How long: One hour is enough
Price: Reasonable. You can buy a combined ticket (Wax museum + mirror hall/museum of torture) with a discount

I was the only one that was in there was very creepy!
The lady on the front desk was rude didn't even greet me when I walked in and looked down at her computer until I stood there for 5 minutes waiting for her to look up.
Waste of money, my opinion is to give it a miss and go walk around the town and enjoy the scenery for free!

The museum presents everyday life situations from the past and a few famous figures. It is quite small (although the space is very nicely used) and there is a pathway that all visitors have to follow. Certain areas are quite dark and along with the audio effects were very scary for my 3.5 y/o and I must say a bit scary for me too. My 5 y/o enjoyed the visit.

Nice wax figures, but too expensive. A lady selling tickets was very unpleasant to guests, as if she worked for a punishment...

Small museum compared to other wax museums. If this is your first time to see wax art-go for it. If not-just walk by. Its nothing special.

This is an excellent museum with lifelike figures depicting village life and some famous characters who are alive today. The exhibit is set out so you walk in one direction and experience different aspects of village life. We were impressed with the presentation and took about half an hour to complete. Definitely worth a visit
