Was quite expensive for what it was. 50% of the figures were very well done but the others didnt look like a true image of that person. The underground torture tour was very interesting. NOTE there are NO toilets on site.

Although my 9 yr old enjoyed looking at the wax figures, what he loved was the history lesson in the dungeon of horrors. Our guide was a great story teller. As far as my child is concerned, the more gruesome the better!

So pleased you and your son enjoyed The Wax Museum. Such good memories.

This was really worth visiting , as the guide was giving us the history and the way life was back in the 1700's or 1800's. The wax figures where really good to see.
