    Wax museum is a wonderful place to learn history. Located in Baltimore city. It is a hidden treasure. Full of wax depictions from history current. It is inexpensive. Worth the time to learn, to listen and become a part of your history. Recommended for educational purposes

    The wax figures and history of the museum is awesome and outstanding. However, conditions of the building is horrible, inside needs major repair. The bathrooms are unsanitary and run down. Peeling paint and lack of air upstairs causes a foul oder. This building is likely to be condemn A new building is greatly needed, if we are to reserve our history.

    This place gets to the heart of the quick. It doesn't hidden the truth about the cruelty of white enslavers, white supremacy and black resistance to all of it. It also highlights the triumph of the black spirit!

    The wax figures are very well done. The history is excellent. You can learn a lot of history in 90 minutes with a self guided tour.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
