The museum also boasts the largest collection of musical instruments in Karnataka, with over 300 items ranging from antiquated pieces to modern electronic instruments.

  • Its amazing and all the wax made creatures looks very realistic. Horror world is there for 40/- entry and cartoons exhibit for 30/- entry. Wax museum entry is 40/-. There is a little shop inside . Overall maintenance is not that up to mark and can be maintained in better way. Lot of musical instruments are also exhibited. Music lovers can visit it. Can spend 1 hr here.
  • They have a rare collection of Indian and Western cultured was statues.it's a pretty good place to visit in Mysore. There is a horror house too where you can enjoy with your friends and family. And every was statue and it's history is clearly displayed so that children could gain some knowledge. There is a rock band instrumental place too, where you can use every instrent at a minimal cost🙂
  • More than a wax museum this is like the house of musical instruments. You see almost all kinds of musical instruments varying from the Latin American to Arabic. The number of musical instruments are the maximum I've ever seen in any museum and I hope this museum holds a record for that also. The wax statues just form a support structure for the instruments as all these statues are just for the purpose of displaying the instruments. The kids section has a lot more popular characters being shown, but we are to pay separately for that. This is the only disadvantage over here. To see the whole stuff we will have to pay 120, ie., 40 each for horror wold, museum and kids section
  • It is a good place with fine art but today's crowd Don't find it fascinating. It is well maintained and the people with various instruments are displayed very well. 5 stats for the content. Gave it 3 cause it isn't so worth the travel (if you are far)
  • Nice place. Showcasing different forms of musical troops through out the world. Very well collections of instruments. The wax statues are really good but It would be the best if the backgrounds are well decorated. Along with this, horror world and kids zone are available with separate tickets.

Where to stay in Mysuru (Mysore)

Make your reservations early to enjoy the range of accommodations available in Mysuru (Mysore), as the diverse range of hotels and guesthouses in this popular tourist town can fill up quickly. For the bulk of available options, look south of the train station along the JLB arterial road. A handful of old colonial treasures still stand, along with a number of modern hotels, some offering views of the more princely architecture in the city. Simple guesthouses on primarily residential side streets, as well as a few shared-room hostels, provide good options for budget-conscious travelers.
