  • Very entertaining. So many selfie opportunities it's mind boggling! The horror movie section is a lot of fun.  more »
  • My husband and I took our 10-year-old daughter to the Hollywood Wax Museum for the first time for all three of us. It was fun posing with the wax celebrities. The included props were really cool too! ...  more »
  • This place was kinda cheesy! Their "wax" statues were not exactly good! Most of the figures didn't look like the person they portrayed. Definitely a tourist attraction.  more »

  • The Hollywood Wax Museum is such a nice place to visit, especially on a rainy afternoon. Whoever made these wax figures did an amazing job, and the best part is that you don't have to look at them from a distance, you actually get to step on the set right next to them so that you can take pictures of yourself or your family with their favorite characters. If you feel like being silly, the museum makes props available to make your photo ops even more fun. The customer service is amazing and so is the gift shop. We really enjoyed our visit.
  • My daughter and I had a lot fun here. I apologize now because almost all of the photos have my daughter in them. She's a big part of my having so much there and I didn't think to take photos without her. I wouldn't say all the figures are entirely accurate looking but the displays are fun. We bought the 3 day pass to visit all 3 places (Ripley's & Guinness world records).
  • Hollywood Wax Museum exceeded my expectations. Throughout the museum they have props you can use and it encourages you to take pictures. The photos we took were hilarious and made the whole experience so much fun. The detail of the stars was amazing. I definitely recommend it to friends and family.
  • We were here a few years ago and saw dramatic improvement on this visit. It was fun back then but even more so now. The majority of the mannequins looked real, and we could walk right up to them and take pictures. Elvis and Marilyn looked superb, and the newer stars were fun to pose with. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and informative, which we’ve found rare in Hollywood. It’s great when something is better than you remember it.
  • Living in the Virgin Islands, visiting a wax museum is not really an option. So, we tried it out when we were in Hollywood. Pretty cool and many of the figures looked life-like. Wish I could visit more often!
