Pretty cool place to take the kiddos, they do have a torture section at this wax museum but you can go around that so the little one's don't see it.

This was an ok museum to visit, but the best part was getting to go into the underground tunnel! I had never been in a wax museum so have nothing to compare it to. I did think the admission fee was a little pricey.

We toured this museum, and found that the artist that did the wax replicas had no resemblance to the actual people.

The figures are terrible. They are dirty and in poor condition. The building itself is in need of repair.

The wax museum has a lot of really neat exhibits and they are adding more. But I think my favorite one is about the life the building they are housed in had early in the 1930-40s-50s. The gambling connection and mob life connections are really cool and the exhibits are very interesting!

The history of this building should be included in the tour as it was part of a club Al Capone frequented. Displays were we maintained and interesting.

Please do not waste your money unless someone in your group has this on their bucket list (unfortunately for me it was on my friends.) Displays and figures are poor quality and many of them I had to read the sign to know who it was suppose to be.

The place is not well lit and their are lots of stairs, twists and turns. They had a monster section which we did... More

Figured needed to do it at least once. And that was plenty. A lot of the figured didn't resemble who they were suppose to be. The work however involved is pretty impressive.

I remember when this first opened. I think I was about 12. Years later when I come back to visit my hometown I take friends there to see it. It stinks, really bad. Smells old and like mildew. Some of the same wax figures are the same ones that was there 40 years ago. I was hoping for some updates,... More
