We liked it, kind of corny, but we found it to be something to do while we were in the area. We thought most of the figures were pretty accurate.

Part of the tour often given. It appears to be haunted although my Ghost app did not go off... LOL Very neat seeing the old cupboards holding ancient medicines from 1850.

Wasn't the most exciting, but was ok. Some of the wax figures didn't resemble the person. Some were on point.

I was not thrilled by the wax museum, but the college age couple we were with seemed to really have fun at this museum, so maybe is better for teens-young adults???? I think we were the only customers in the museum at the time.
