  • Only for those who are interested in different forms of music. Many musical instruments from different regions are at display. The look however is very ordinary and not well maintaned. You can see the walls cracked or covered with cobwebs. Nice concept got lost in bad maintenance.
  • Place for tourist interest. Very boring... tiket of Rs 40/- per head. U will find here wax statues old and musical instruments. Waste of 40/-.
  • You get to see so many musical forms in India - the men, women and instruments across all states. You have live drums and keyboard too that you can pay and play.
  • Excellent effort considering its not supported by the government. Kudos to the artist and sponsor. A great music lover.
  • A very unique wax museum of musical instruments and musicians of the world. For people with such interest who will surely enjoy. No popular people sculpted in this museum. But the horror world is absolutely ZERO. Don't waste your time and money. It is just walking through a dark corridor.
