What people are saying:

This is Germany's largest and oldest waxwork and you know what? It's up there with Madame Tussauds! (Personally I think it's better, but I am biased ;-))There are wax figures from historical to modern figures, from comedians to actors to Queens and Kings to fashion designers.Really enjoyed visiting.

    Just OK

    This museum has some pretty good wax figures, some not so good because they were made a long time ago. Some do not resemble the originals at all. Overall, OK experience but nothing too special. As a t...
