  • me and my friend were the only 2 in the museum, pretty fun place if you're alone, real spooky too
  • Lovely place to walk around and learn history about how life was in the early times of the city of Monterey
  • I don't mean to WAX poetic, but this was seriously the most fun I've ever had. I learned, I laughed, I cried. Plus a BEAR fights a BULL. It's genuine and awesome and just a lot of fun. Worth every penny!
  • Good for a history lesson, but lacking in the wax reality
  • I think you need to have a specific sense of humor to want to go here. That, and some funny friends.
