  • The detail in the scenes is amazing. It doesn't take long and there are a lot of steps. Still it is worth the price to see. 
  • It's a short walk through a historic house with wax figures behind a glass window. It offers some history but nothing we hadn't already seen in the free museums in harpers ferry. Felt this was a bit of a waste.
  • Talks about the life of John brown. Museum was ok but not worth seven dollars.
  • The wax looked pretty realistic, and I enjoyed the audio information.
  • A classic must see when visiting Harpers Ferry. Nothing else like it in the country.
  • Simply amazing!
