The Wax Museum is listed as a Great Wax Museum of the World. The figures have been crafted by leading overseas sculptors to international standards, equal in quality to the world's best.

The incredibly intricate detail includes hair applied one strand at a time, requiring many working hours, and the eyes are so real they seem to follow you around.

In the Famous People section, wander through at your leisure viewing the people who have been authentically reproduced.

The Chamber of Horrors (set in its own medieval dungeon) is a guided tour covering the grim, staggering record of Human Cruelty throughout the ages. More spine chilling than fiction, it is the only display of its kind in the world.
