  • Went with family and kids and all in all a very disappointing day.. The kids didn't even get excited.. Definitely not worth the money.. 
  • I brought my 2 nephews over the mid term and we had a great day. 'Best day ever' is what they had to say! The sciemce section was very hands on, got a message sent to Santa and they even got to star i...  more »

  • Waxwork museum? Really? Not my cup of tea. But this place was well worth the entrance fee. Excellent displays, informative and well laid out. Well worth a visit.
  • First impression was not so good. Claustrophobic basement. But it gets better when you keep moving. It's interesting place, some things look very old fashion or don't work but it only gives more character to the place. I spent there about an hour and a half. Best actor / singer figures kept at the end when you think you must have missed something you realise there is a big room just near the exit.
  • If you want to get to know Irish celebrities, old and new, and a bit of the irish history in a different, fun and dynamic way, Dublin Wax Museum is the way to go! Nice staff to give u guidance around, and answer questions you might have… It definitely worth a visit if you are around Dublin and have spare time for it! ;)
  • Cool place to see strange stuff hehehe, very easy to find they have a great coffee shop
  • Great for kids, but pay attention when approaching the entrance. Some of the city's more shady activity goes on just outside the wax museum.
