Build has serious maintenance issues. The hand rail come off mounts when grabbing. Whom ever dressed figures must just missed a lot of details to hide wax seems. They keep most area poor lit or figure so far away you can't see how bad condition. I am pretty sure this is where wax figure go to die

The wax museum is located in an old casino. There is a lot of history inside this place. The wax figures are some good some not. What makes this attraction special is what it was and who visited there.Well worth visiting.

When my friend and I visited back in July 2015 the place seemed dated and the wax figures did not seem very realistic. You can not really interact with the figures like other wax museums because a handful of them are behind glass. It did not take us very long to go through it maybe 30 minutes but, if you... More

My scouts chose to go to the wax museum so we went. I was excited because I had never been to a wax museum. However, I was a little disappointed in the upkeep of the figures/displays. It seemed as though not enough care or attention is given after they have been there for a while (meaning not dusted or hair... More

This is OK, but some of the attractions were a bit non lifelike. If you want something to do while downtown and to get in from the heat, this is fun. Plus you can get a combo pack of tickets for other attractions in the same area if you want.

Wax figures were horrible. None of them looked like their living counterpart. The only good part was the historical documents and photographs of the history of Southern Club that once existed in the same building.

We visited this wax museum years ago and thought it was one of those "been there done that" kinds of things. We were wrong. We went back because we brought friends with is this time who wanted to see it. Things have changed people. Honestly we never that impressed with the wax, but did enjoy the history of the building...

The wax museum was not impressive. The figures are not realistic looking at all. We were disappointed in the quality. The only redeeming quality of the wax museum was the young lady at the front desk who showed us the secret tunnel underneath the museum that gangsters used as an escape tunnel. She took us down there and provided a... More
