  • A nice place to see some famous people. A visit won't take too long, but it is interesting to see and have some photos take with some well known people.
  • Panoptikum is the cheaper version of Madame Tussauds. With lots of semi realistic wax figures from politician, artist, musician, performer or even movie scene with characters etc. Worth visiting, is cheap and nice.
  • Is a very nice place
  • Brilliant historic exposition
  • Loved it
