Honestly when I got in here, I was worried for my own safety, it's more like an abandoned building turned into a non-wax museum. Only a small percentage of the figures are really wax, and the place is filthy and not maintained.. Would not recommend for small children. There is a section that is like a horror chamber with bloody... More

As wax museums go this one seems small but has 3 floors to check out. Some of the figures were spot on but some of the displays lighting were out.

It was something to do on a Saturday for myself and daughters along with a friend, we were excited to go for the first time but after getting in there it wasn't the best for kids because they were scared or the figures, the hallways were narrow, some of the figures stood in the hallways so getting kids to even...

We were looking for something to do. We had 2 hours to kill so we went here. We had a person in a scooter who couldn't walk the stairs to get to the exhibits and there were no elevators. The rest of us went & she stayed back and ate delicious ice cream on the main floor. We didn't even... More

Having been to the Wax Museum in New York and Branson, this wax museum was a complete waste of time and money. Not only were the figures poorly maintained, and unlabeled, the people they represented we're hardly recognizable or were just terrible representations. If you want to go to a really awesome wax museum, don't waste your time with this... More

Poor lighting, many of the figures don't look like the people. Some are not labeled and have fallen into disrepair. It was a total waste of time and money. Don't go there.

This was the first wax museum I had ever been to. It was an absolute blast. The wax statues are of the best quality. You wont be disappointed.

My husband and I visited while staying in St. Louis(he got in free for his birthday). We had no idea what to expect, but throughly enjoyed ourselves in the 'it was so bad it was good' way. It wasn't anything that we would have expected, and down right creepy at the end. We even used a cell phone flashlight to... More
