Nothing to write about but in this tourist attraction starved town, something to do, especially on a rainy day. Few interesting figures and some fun pics.

As with any some of the figures are dead on and some suck. Obviously filled with Mexican people like Cantinflas and Salma Hayek nd athletes and musicians and ex presidents. Also some International heavy weights like Brad Pitt and Elton John and Shakira.

They are really bad made. If there was no name on the wax people I had to guess. The only fun thing is the horror section. Go check it out

I have seen better wax museums in Amsterdam, but this was also a very nice place to look at celebrities and learn more of the Mexican culture. I was able to take some very fun pictures with JB and the whole crew of the "El Chavo" show.

It was okay, not to big and we didn't know a good amount of the figures. Still nice to take up some time and to be out of the heat.

Good wax figures, but a lot of people inside, they need to have more control over the amount of people entering

The place is boring, you can buy the ticket with the aquarium and ripley's musseum but is worthless, the "statues" are awful without details, there are only a few. Only go if you want to waste 1 hour... top.
