The museum is good. Do not expect much.Though there are few other statues but they mainly focus on various music instruments of different culture. However I can't find why this place isn't recognized by government(as they say so), but the effort is good.

Very nice small museum with wax models showing cultural & musical themes. This museum has a good collection of musical instruments which are very interesting.

We need to be encouraging the artists work here. Really great work. If they were funded better I believe they could have crossed Tussauds. Worth visiting and getting the souvenirs.

Like everyone I assumed this to be a wax museum with a variety of collection of different personalities or sculptures etc. however I was surprised to see it was a collection of old musical instruments and almost all the wax idol face was similar with different clothing. Cons: 1) Not worth the ticket cost 2) All wax figures have similar... More

Everything made of wax - Music, People, Culture, History, Heritage across Continents and Artistry, is what is largely on display here. The museum has a good collection of wax models depicting different indian cultural themes. Helping hands at various places will comfortably guide you to the end. Also has few antique items to remind you of good old memories. Taking... More

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
