it was mostly very poor sculpturing. My high school teacher used to do better. Other fraught is the political perpective of the founder or the owner of this place. You will just know 20 or 30 percent of these sculptures. No need to flatter those...More

The museum contains over 200 figures, mostly related to Turkish history, culture, politics, journalism, economics, education and entertainment. Those figures were well done. The copies of President Obama and Marilyn Monroe were iffy.

The Yilmaz Buyukersen Balmumu Heykellerr Muzesi gives you a look at historical figures in Turkey. Of course you will see Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and much more. Located in town among many other sites it is easy to get to. Must see.

Under the patronage of Eskişehir's legendary mayor, Yılmaz Büyükerşen, this is a cute wax museum. You will not only find figures from Turkey's past and current popular and political culture but also global figures. Nicely surprising.

We visited this museum as it was recommended to us by our relatives. We really liked the collection in the museum. It was well kept and the price is really good too. We would recommend this place if you go to Eskisehir.

Beautiful wax statues of famous people from around the world can be found here. So it is a good opportunity to stand next to the statue of a celebrity. The fee that we pay as entrance ticket goes towards girl's education.

Hi, you can have selfie with figures but touching is not allowed however there is no alarm on them. Only some special figures are behind the window. Have fun!
