Owner description: Celebrating 50 years on Hollywood Boulevard, this classic star-studded attraction lets you get into the action with the biggest stars. Get up close and personal with celebrities for fun photos (you choose the poses!) and learn little-known facts about their pets, pet peeves, and accomplishments. See for yourself why so many California vacationers feel this is one of the best things to do in LA. Come play with the stars!

The only reason we paid a visit here was because it was raining and we needed an indoor activity. We bought a pass that included a few attractions, the wax museum being one of them. It is a shame because the place has such potential…plenty to see and a great way to interact but I was incredibly disappointed with the figures themselves. Some barely resembled the actors and the quality of the wax was awful! Save your pennies unless you are desperate to fill in some time.

We loved the venue for containing heaps of wax figures of Hollywood greats, set in scenes from the movies they starred in. This was a nice touch, and meant that there was plenty to see. However the quality of the wax sculptures was terrible - the skin colors were really yellow and clear, like they couldn't be bothered painting them as they are Caucasians, and most did not look like the actor at all - we spent a lot of time reading the name plaques just to work out who they were supposed to be. Its worth a look, as its done out really well as a venue, but if you want to see realistic wax figures then walk down the street to Madame Tousauds instead.

While I feel the New York Wax museum needs updating (or I need to stop taking out of town visitors there) the Los Angeles location is beat.

The wax looked like it is pealing off the characters faces and the scenes are nothing special. It smells like dead people, its over priced, and you get attacked by people dressed up as sandwiches standing in line.

This museum is not worth a visit. The exhibition is simple and neither interesting nor amazing. There are more interesting things to see in the area, do not waste your time here.
