  • Good. Reception lady Elizabeth was good and tour guide lady for torture room was good. It's sad to see those torturing. Remember Jesus went through brutal torturing to save the mankind from sin. He did not do any mistake or sin. That came to my mind while I saw the chamber. Gandhiji was good but he never had flannel on him. Value for money. Thank God for the freedom we have now rather than brutality of previous centuries
  • Visited here as a family of four, adults and early teens. The place isn't an amusement ride but an enjoyable and informative wax museum. The torture tour was good and the guide had a good knowledge of historical tortures. We were in a small group for the tour and he answered questions and explained things well. Really liked it.
  • Over priced nothing like other wax museums visited everything behind glass no touching or posing for photos
  • If your interested in a small history walk about this may be for you.
  • Very very over priced. Small museum. Average quality. Torture method s were bit interesting. Hence one star.
