"Best as part of the ghost tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 20, 2017 NEW
This attraction was included as part of the Old Town Trolley ghost tour package. We made the mistake of going during the day. It would have been spookier at night. The museum itself is small and not much to look at. I'm not sure if I would have paid to see this if it weren't already included. However, that being said, as part of the ghost tour, it was fairly informative and somewhat fun. This kids liked it and that's what really counts.

Nice arrangements of various stuff. Not enough modern interest. Lots of history. Wanted to bundle with trolly but as a combo it was very over priced. Find a coupon book $3 off makes just the museum a nice value.

Wow! This place is awesome. Each hair is stranded one by one. A lot of figures in awesome costumes. The drug store when you first walk in is really interesting. I was really impressed with history and dedication to the art of the wax figure.

This is a great way to beat the heat at ten bucks a pop. They had way more figures than i thought they would. Very up close and personal too. We enjoyed strolling through and taking fun photos with the figures.
