wax museum?

Does Chicago have a wax museum? I have looked here and there on the web and some answers say yes, some say no so I thought I would just ask here! Thanks!

In my 30 years I have never heard of one or seen one, so I am going to say no. The closest one i can think of is in Wisconsin Dells.

There was one a couple of decades ago in Old Town, near the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Can't say I ever visited...

Ripley's closed 20-some years ago. No wax museums in Chicago.

There is none in the Dells either. That closed probably a decade ago.

Went to the one in Old Town when I was about 12. 56 now so that tells you how long ago it was there.

There was a plan to bring a Madame Toussads Wax Museum and Harrods to Block 37 but Daley couldn't seal that deal. Not sure if it was the economy at the time or what it was.
