  • The wax figures are really uncanny. You can take pictures with them. There are some that you can put on clothes and be part of their scene. I would recommend taking advantage of buying tickets on line...  more »
  • Good ride for those unfamiliar Wax Museum, excellent service, perfect sculptures and well characterized and dressed, I arrived early and was empty and I had plenty of time to shoot and play with the family. It was worth it.

  • Please do not scare your young children with this freak show. I saw a six yr old run out screaming because her parents didn't think wax people were weird.  more »

  • It's a nice place to take your family at but the price is too much for walk-in. You are better of buying deals from groupon. A guy takes pictures before you enter the main hall where the statues are but all his pictures turn out dark. No effort whatsoever to make them look better. They also removed some of the statues.
  • Somewhat disappointing, we have been to Madame Tusaudes all over the country ( it's become one of our "things" when traveling) this had the least amount of figures out of any that we had been to. We like to see some of the more historical figures ( past presidents, historical figures etc) and this one just had around 3. Not many celebrities either. Not sure if the lack of figures is due to a space constraint or not. The ones in Las Vegas and DC are the better ones.
  • Bought tickets at 8:40 pm. We were assured the museum would be open for 1 hour after. My 6 year old daughter needed the restroom. We were told downstairs that they were closed and to go else where.
  • Exhibits look so real and you can make your own wax hand (extra $). But it's pretty small.
  • It was so much fun especially getting to use the props they have so you can use them to take great pictures

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
