Mother's Wax Museum, Kolkata (Calcutta)

Tour larger than life figures at Mother's Wax Museum, India’s first wax museum located in an unconventionally shaped modern building in New Town. Mingle with wax images of Indian national heroes and celebrities and get a close up view of Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Mother Theresa, Diego Maragona and Spiderman. Dressed in their original attire, these well-done statues provide a great photo opportunity but you can actually do this with the idols in their respective setting like read a book with Tagore or sit on a presidential chair. A well-lit futuristic blue glass wall in the lobby has a collection of famous sayings for which these grandees are known for. The museum has two bonsai gardens with cafeterias on each side.

  • Excellent place to visit with friends and family. A great collection of noble persons in the world. All are like as lively. But some one are not up to the mark of their personality they had. But after all a great place to click photos with historical person.
  • My experience to this museum was really awesome. Marvelous statues are present including Ramkrishna, Netaji, Vivekananda , and also some great scientists, actors n players. Only reason for giving 1*less is it's too much expensive for middle class people. It's 250 per person. I really admire the beauty of the statues but 250 is costly. It should have been 100-150. Thank you.
  • Very nice place, excellent place and a mind blowing place to visit and enjoy with friends or family. Specially the children will love this place and enjoy undoubtedly. The statues made of wax of the great persons and the renowned personalities have well been presented here with a great ambiance and excellent atmosphere. The museum is kept well maintained and well administered. It is very much neat and clean place. Although some figures are not accurately similar than the original, still it is a lovely wax museum. The tattoo place is really exceptionally beautiful and amazing. I have seen that the visitors are dancing in the dazzling lights unanimously and spontaneously as of me and my family and taking photos or videos. Really enjoyable section. Finally it is a must visited place without any hesitation. Excellent- Excellent and Excellent experience.
  • Excellent place. Excellent wax designs. Employees were also disciplined. Top floor where cabteen is situated lacks cleanliness. Improvement in this regard required
  • A spectacular place to visit. Idols of many personalities are there. One can easily spend an hour or two at the place. One can take photos with Idols with but touching is not allowed. The place is well maintained and worth for money. There is also a room where unique shadows are reflected. Overall experience was very good. The place is opposite Eco-park and there is an underground sub-way to reach here from eco-park
