Mother's Wax Museum, Kolkata (Calcutta)

(3.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Mother's Wax Museum and other Kolkata (Calcutta) attractions using our handy Kolkata (Calcutta) vacation builder.

  • Nice collection.Some of the statues are very realistic not all of them.I like the statues of A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Pranab Mukherjee,Einstaine most.The museum is not completed properly,some parts are under construction.
  • Located opposite to eco park new town. A Wax museum with wax statues of many renowned people around the world. Must go place at kolkata, closed on mondays, ticket price is Rs. 150 only still photography is allowed here.
  • It is really great to have a wax museum in Kolkata with lots of Bengalee great people statues there. It also has some.legends like Sachin, Bachchan etc there.
  • It is locatedd just opposite of the eco park, new town. There are many wax figures...but not very good. Ticket price is very high.
  • It's just located opposite of ecopark gate no. 2. Entry fee is much higher for roaming inside the place. Hardly it takes approx 20mins after spending 150 bucks.
