This was the first time we toured & loved it. This is a self guided tour, so you can linger all you want. A bit of the past & present. The figures are extremely realistic as are the scenes. You can take photos, just do not touch.

There is something for everyone here. Loved the display on WW2 generals and world leaders. The pharmacy in the anteroom to the wax museum was great and the cashier was veryu knowledgeable about both the wax museum and the old pharmacy. Very reasonably priced.
