  • If you're looking for an exciting, fun, & scary time-then this is the place to go. Otherwise make sure to walk by for a photo op with Frankenstein.  more »
  • This place just doesnt change, there isnt much to see. Not scary enough for teens, too scary for young tykes.  more »
  • Some of the displays seemed to not be working properly. Not worth the price. Would probably be fun for tweens/teens.  more »

  • How long has this place been here? I have been going to Lake George for 35 years and I can't ever remember it not being here. It has a Vaudeville type feel to it. There are many famous scenes from traditional horror literature made in wax figures. It is a fun novelty, and worth a visit. I am glad this place has survived so long, I would suggest people visit this place while they can, these sorts of places won't be around forever.
  • This place is so awesome! Its been a long time, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Realistic looking monsters and people. That scary vibe, but so much fun. Everything was well made, and you could tell they put a lot of work into the wax figures, and so much detail. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. The House Of Frankinstein in in a town with so much to do.The wax museum will always be my favorite though. You just don't see many of them around anymore. I hope to take my kids there one day. I know they would love it. I definitely recommend checking this place out. You won't be sorry.
  • A lot of fun for the afternoon. We came off the street and weren't sure what to expect. It's a mix of fun house and wax museum. Better for older kids. Would suggest having a flash light. Needs a little updating but excellent for a laugh and something light hearted.
  • One of America's Last GREAT Wax Museums!!! Once upon a time, there were hundreds of wax museums dotted across our nation's highways. Now, these classic wax museums were much different from the current Madame Tussaud's exhibits which seem to exist solely to snap a picture of yourself next to a statue that looks like Brad Pitt. These original wax museums educated, told a story or had a theme. Some were about the history of the local area, while many others were horror-themed. HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN fits into the latter category and is one of the last shining examples of these cool attractions. And it is very, very cool. Here you will see diabolical dioramas and terrifying tableaus featuring horrific scenes from literature, film and history. Everything from Frankenstein to Edgar Allen Poe to the Spanish Inquisition. CHECK IT OUT!!!!
  • Just scary enough, and fun with friends. We all had a good time walking through, and definitely would go back. Great if you're a fan of the original movie monsters.
