  • I went to this museum on a week day. It was expensive price to be admitted. I had not seen anything like this before but the figures were like the people they represented. The tour was interesting and...  more »

  • Average at best upstairs, but maybe my expectations of a museum are higher. Front desk hyped about the downstairs experience on entrance. Maybe they should consider some censorship or pre warning before inviting kids down below. Our kids 9, 7 and 4. Lucky the 7 and 4 year old can't concentrate on details or lost intrest by then. Our 9 year old fainted after hearing stories of human torture, war crimes followed by actually photos, props and narration. I'm considering complaining to the Australian Classification Board to make the exhibition classified to r18.
  • It is good if u r board and doing nothing at hotel ! The statues are behind glass and most of them are hardly recognised. I won't go there again ! They charged me 52 for me and my wife but I didn't enjoyed it actually,
  • Unfortunately it's a waste of time and money. They are charging $29.00 for adult ticket and it's just not worth the money what so ever. Statues are hardly recognizable and the only helpful thing is their name tags cause otherwise you wouldn't know who that person is.The so called chamber of Horror is also bit lame. The guide (who most probably is the partner/husband of a reception lady) is pretty talkative, yet it is bit complicated to understand his perfectly memorized script as he talks fast and mumbles. Not saying it's a total waste, but definitely not worth $29.00 for a ticket. For what expo they have and "horror tour" they offer the price should be at least 3 times lower then that. And those who been there once ain't gonna go there again for sure.
  • Not bad of a time filler. Should be 15$ but not 29!
  • An enjoyable visit. The wax models can be a hit or miss but the guided tour in "The Chamber of horrors" was the high point of the visit. Probably not the best place for young children though. Otherwise, the price is fair and the staff were very friendly.
