This attraction is interesting in an a recycled sort of experience. If you experience it from the top floor to the basement, one could make it a entertaining experience; not like a museum per say, but a "this is so weird" kind of experience. Warning:...More

Worst wax museum ever! I didn't read reviews beforehand because I just needed something to do in the area to kill a little time and this was all I could find interesting. It's a dark maze of horribly designed wax figures with no labels and...More

While it is a little down market, we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits among the rambling corridors and rooms. Great if you like horror!

What a huge disappointment. I've been to a number of wax museums and they're usually something I gravitate to while on vacation. This building was rundown, dirty, dusty, and hard to breathe in. There was no flow to walk through the displays which were also...More

I'm giving this 4 starts because it's good campy fun. I get tired of antiseptic, overly manicured tourist experiences. This is in a really neat area down the street from the Arch. The building is old, crusty, and fun!!! A large variety of wax figures...More

4 stories of wax figures- they don't look like they've been moved or dusted in years. Poor air conditioning. The figures , in many cases, are not so good resemblances. The craziest thing : the sole worker had the door locked to the museum- even...More

Very friendly staff, but the museum is old and needs to be up graded. Lighting is poor , hallways are dingy and seem a bit dusty.
