“What a cool place!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

While this is no Madame Toussauds, it is a really cool place to visit and should be on your itinerary if you are headed to the hall of fame! Lots to see!!

“A bit dated and slightly creepy”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

It was quite dim in many portions of the museum with the wax figures appearing dirty/dusty and in need of attention. I would not attend again.

“The wax figures look real!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The wasn't a huge display but the quality was good and worth the $9.00 entry fee. It is located right next door to the Baseball Hall of Fame so it wasn't out of the way at all.

“Wax Baseball Players”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

There wasn't a huge display but enough to make it worth the $9.00 entrance fee. And I finally got to see Pete Rose inducted into the Hall of Fame - at least at the Wax Museum !!!

“Cute”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

It was fun. It doesn't take very long to walk thru the wax museum
( less than an hour.) We all enjoyed it.
