Our campground got us a family ticket to go see this for free. Some of the presidents look awesome. Others were done poorly. Don't know how I would have felt paying $11 a person to see this, but for free it was good.

If you are in to history this is the place for you. It’s a self guided audio tour. Some of the figures are so life like it’s rather scary, while others are obviously wax.

Good character portrayal in wax and historical settings. Lots of extra info through the audio tour. Take a couple hours to get the full value of the museum.

The wax figures were very well done! We enjoyed this and everyone in our family learned a bit of something! The gift shop had some hilarious items as well (that you wouldn’t have to pay to see) especially about Trump!

This was a nice museum with all the presidents and a few other people. A great place to come on a rainy day.

Someone from where we were staying recommended this and we are so glad he did. It took us through all the presidents and for the price of admission, you get an audio guide to take on your self guided tour. So worth the visit.

The wax figures actually looked 100% real! They give you little phones to listen to the history on all the presidents!

Actually no! You can walk in and purchase tickets and start your tour at any time. We merely offer online ticket sales for those who prefer to go that route. Thanks!
