Many attendants around the city to answer questions. Easy access. Most audio boxes worked, but not all.

Absolutely wonderful
Undoubtedly the best wax museum ive ever been to. it was great from start to finish, the likeness of the celebs inside were so very real looking and if you stare long enough they look like they move, so freaky, in a good way.
