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

Not a happening place as you will only find the transition of musical instruments used over the past eras towards the current generation ones. All in all an average place to visit.

The wax museum is an excellent place to visit. The statues are very nice and they have good collection of musical instruments. But, they have another place called horror place in the same campus. Nothing is there; it is waste of money and time.
