  • I had read a couple of bad reviews but we really enjoyed our visit! Lots of fun, loads for the children to see and helpful staff. Probably takes approx. 90 mins  more »
  • For those who like to explore the Irish culture, it is a good place, most statues reflect this, although we also found some statues of famous artists such as Michael Jackson, Madonna

  • I loved that museum, it is really unusual and amusing place, there is a section where they always change and get new thing.
  • Have you ever wanted to strangle Bertie Aherne? Now you can, in our Chamber of Horrors. Slash Irish History wing.
  • 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! ;)
  • Great place for all family. We enjoyed. There are rooms with themes for every member of the family.
