By now I have seen quite a few Wax museums, but enroute our visit to the sand museum, we found the melody wax museum. It was good as sculptures were carved out well, but it definitely requires maintenance, or it might lose its charm. The other unknown part was a horror house (Entry tickets separate) adjacent/attached to the wax museum.... More

Pretty close to the sand museum on Chamundi hill road and one can go walking out there. Keeping high expectations with this museum may disappoint as was the case with me. All statues look the same except for the clothing they are wearing. The staff is also in a hurry and least interested in explaining about the scenes in detail.... More

This place is a good start towards the prevalent culture of private museum in the west. The place has a decent collection of wax statues but needs maintenance and funds as has been spelt out by the curator in a notice.

Pros: 1. Huge collection of musical instruments. 2. Very easily accessible. 3. Can play the instruments and take photos a t a minimum charge. Cons. 1. Small museum. 2. No variation in the face structure of the wax statues. 3. Nothing out of ordinary. People with children can visit once

Music, People, Culture, History, Heritage across Continents and Artistry, is what is largely on display here ... all made of Wax ! The work on display is truly endearing and shocked, to say the least, that it doesn't get the attention and care it deserves. With meanings attributed to the wax artistry, some of the works not only provoke thoughts... More

There was an exit through which i wanted to come out but i was asked to continue to walk through the horrible rooms.. However i denied and made sure to come out.... More

The Wax Museum is a very nice place to visit in Mysore specially for children. There are many statues made from wax but maximum from them are related to musicians with their instruments. There is very good collection of old musical instruments. It seems that this museum not supported by the Karnataka Government as I saw hoardings says the same... More
