We had a fun time it was small and had some very neat things to see and some history about gambling. A little rundown but definitely worth the visit especially if you buy the combo ticket with duck tours

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 The only good part was the historical documents and photographs of the history of Southern Club that once existed in the same building.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

This attraction offers entertainment for adults and older children. It is very educational and the characters seems lifelike.

I thought this was hilarious and if you are wanting to do something super gimmicky I would definitely recommend. I took it be tongue in cheek. I have visited Madame Tussauds in London and thought this to be a sarcastic rendition. We thought it was hilarious but if you are going for a realistic wax museum maybe save your money.
