We enjoyed the wax museum which is located near the Arlington Hotel on bath house row. Other attractions of combo tickets to include the museum, which make it extremely affordable.

WEll the kids liked it but honestly the wax figures weren't very real looking. It is an old building and smells funny but it was good for the kids.

Facility needs to be updated. Displays are old and not well displayed. The admission cost is expensive compared to what you see,

Sure, it's outdated and smells musty and yes, the wax figures are poorly crafted but it's still fun. As long as you go in knowing that it's crap, you're going to have a good time AND you don't have to deal with a crowd.
