  • Years ago not entered to a wax museum. It was very entertaining. We took advantage of the purchase of the ticket along with the Aquarium to make it come out more economic. We took a fast ride, but it was very good.

  • In the heart of the city, the wax museum along with the Aquarium and the zoo are located in Darling Harbour, one of the most beautiful places in Sydney. At checkout you can buy tickets to three attractions at reduced prices. The visit is very nice and in about an hour. While not huge, there are numerous characters in the present and the past. Engaging entertainment.

  • Wax models are awesome. It would be better if they had more models as most of them I remember when I was a kid. Some good ones are missing too. Photos are ok for the album but are not as good as the Wildlife or Aquarium. Easily kills only 30 minutes unless you are taking photos or selfies with every single model.
  • This is quite a fun place to visit. I wasn't expecting to see so many Australian wax figures. I liked seeing Australian history represented there, it would have been nice to see more old aboriginal figures. I thought having John Howard dressed up in his One Day Australian cricket gear in a bowling pose was hillarious. It would have been nice to see a few other Australians there beyond music and sport. How about some of our famous scientists, medicos and inventors?
  • Bought this as part of a ticket package to Sealife. Did not expect much but an hour of amusement. The details of the wax figures were fascinating and learning about the history of the celebrities and historic figures were interesting. Interesting enough if you are into pop culture but would not recommend buying a standalone ticket.
  • Lots to see at Madame Tussauds. Some of the wax figures are quite life like. Our 10 and 7 year old's really enjoyed it. You can make your own wax model of your hand. Add an extra 1 hour if you want to do this.
  • The figures themselves were ok but its 40$ to get in. I might be okay with that if it was a bit bigger, but it is really small there is not alot to look at. It took my just under 20min to see everything there was to see and I really did not rush at all. But the worst part is how they want to trick you into buying photos they made of you for another 50$ if you buy all of them or 15$ for a single one. They make you feel bad if you dont take them because all of the photos are already printed out and will just get thrown away if you don't buy them. So in conclusion its nice to see if you have too much money but otherwise its not worth it.
