  • Paid €28 for two adults, wasn't expecting anything special, but just an interesting tour for this prices. Unfortunately the statues are worn off, hard to recognise the characters. The other disappoint...  read more »

  • I loved it . You learn the history of Dublin in a fun way. It helps a lot to hear the history of each roon. It is fun and for adults and for kids specialy the kids section 
  • Oh God, what is the point of Wax museums. they are one of the most pointless tourist attractions. the Dublin one is particularly bad. the price to get in is stupidly high for what your getting (but to be honest, even if you got in for free, it wouldnt be worth it) None of the models look even remotely like who they are based off. Why does James Connolly look like Marty f##king Whelin (no offence to Marty, I'm a big fan). It's incredibly short, you'd be done it in about 30 minutes. Avoid this place like the plague.
  • Interactive museum. Dont expect a Madame Tussauds level of wax work. However, it is a good hour walk around and very dublin centric. A good addition of you have the dublin pass.
  • I would not advise anyone to invest time or money on the Dublin wax works. Expensive to visit. The only way to recognise characters was by clothing and name plaques wigs were falling off the whole place was tired and half of the exhibits were not working very disappointing had been eight years ago and no improvement s made since then , nearly thirty Euro for family of five to enter and I have to say it is a complete rip off seriously look at Madame tussaudes and put some money into this museum , the staff were very pleasant but little involvement with them as tour is self quided
  • The wax museum is okay but great. The entrance fee is high compared to what's in the museum. It was nice with the option of a narrator in each room as it made it feel slightly more interactive than just reading the signs by the figures. It was lovely with a different way of learning about Irish historical figures, though.
  • A good fun hour or two. Lots to see and you will learn the Irish history in a fun way and informative way. 3 floors of different figures ranging from historical persons to SpongeBob to Elvis Presley.
