It was a great experience for the whole family, including the kids. The Wax Museum has a very clean and comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff. It was amazing to see how life-like the stars are. We loved getting to touch them and take

We had a very good experience at the wax museum with the Hollywood personalities. The figures were very realistic and lifelike. We came 2 years ago and can see the changes which are brilliant!

We were on vacation in Hollywood, and we liked the Wax Museum so much, we went back to see it again. The horror part was the scariest. They did a very great job on Samuel Jackson and Sean Connery!

The Mrs. dragged the kids and I took to this location. I was a bit skeptical on how it would be entertaining. It was a hoot. The kids and I enjoyed ourselves standing next to the wax dummies. I'll go back 5 years from now to see what

Alright, so you might not catch an actual star while you stroll down Hollywood Boulevard, but you can see plenty of luminaries in wax at the Hollywood Wax Museum.

I saw a particular scene of the movie the exorcist here where the possesed girl was on the ground (sitting on the floor) and the priest on his feet rebuking the devil out of her and that looked amazingly real, it was scary.

Most of the wax dummies are in an exhibit space that is decorated to fit a movie. Most are life like, but others seem fake. Overall it's a good experience. You can buy a combination ticket whrere you can see both the wax museum and guiness book of world records museum.

Believe it or not, I actually liked this museum!! Okay, yeah, I did find some of the wax dolls not resembling the actual celeb figures but over all, I think they did a great job! Recent addition (maybe a few years ago?) Julia Roberts winning oscar was just fabulous! It really does look like her!

A giant black hole of a tourist trap (which still manages to pull in those of us who live here..) We finally bit the bullet and decided to go. Big mistake. First off, the admission is way too high for what you get. (You don't realized that until after you get in and see how small it is!) As a movie sculptor I found that the figures are mostly average (there are some very well done likenesses,) but overall just freakish weirdness. I guess that in itself is scary right? I didn't care for the Chamber of Horrors, a little offensive to women in my opinion. You can't even enjoy taking photos because you can't get close to the figures (but I understand that there are idiots out there who act like cavemen and can't handle the responsibility.) I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, especially poor tourists who think the high price they are paying is will be worth it.

Okay, I knew before I walked in that I had overpaid for something that was "hollywood" and I was right. While the wax statues were cool, most of them at least, it was not worth the price I paid at all. There are discounts at every hotel that you go to for a few dollars off but it is still not worth it. Walk up to it, see the ones that are outside on display and go do another entertainment that you will enjoy for longer than 40 minutes tops. Sorry, thumbs down on this one.

The Hollywood Wax Museum houses lots of different wax replicas of a wide arrange of Hollywood stars. Some of them look surprisingly real and it feels kind of creepy when its looking at you.

Admission isn't cheap, at about $13 for adults and you're bound to only spend about an hour or so inside.

I really don't see the big deal of this place. I guess if you're a tourist and you think it's something '"hollywood" to do but really its not worth the price and it's just wax figures? A movie is cheaper and lasts longer! Not to mention that it's really creepy.. Just reminds me of that Paris Hilton movie with the wax coming to life.. Just creepy, expensive, and not worth a minute of your time! Tourists, don't waste your time, this is not real Hollywood. There is no real Hollywood touristy place like the one that exists in everyones minds.

Please never go to this museum. I don't get why it gets so much attention, this museum is SUCH a tourist trap. The wax statues are alright, but not worth $13 to see. The museum is freaking tiny and the tour is really short. The admission should be free! I hope they close down this museum.

I like wax museums because they're completely absurd. When you think about it, it's inexplicable that 21st-century adults like me will actually pay money to see mannequins in various poses. At the Hollywood Wax Museum, some of these poses worked, but many of them were failures both as likenesses and as aesthetic objects. The 12.95 admission price was scarier than most of the Chamber of Horrors.

The wax figures range between pretty good likenesses to poorly done and impossible to interpret. There were a number of lesser known wax actors/comedians featured there, but they tended to be the better-made ones, which solves the mystery of why they remained. Some of the successful renderings included three different figures of Schwarzenegger (oh, the photo ops there!), Laurel and Hardy, a scene from _Pulp Fiction_, and several members (not including Dorothy) from a _Wizard of Oz_ tableau. Some of the failures included Austin Powers, a scene from _Titanic_, and Eddie Murphy.
I love reading horror stories and was excited by the possibilities of a Chamber of Horrors. I ended up leaving a little disgusted b/c of scenes of sexualized violence against women in there. It's a part of horror movies, I know, but I wanted the displays to be a little less sensationalist and, well, sexist. On the bright side, the displays of monsters and masked serial killers are better done that the museum's average movie star wax figure.
I was also slightly disappointed by how small the museum is; my group was able to walk through the entire thing in 1/2 hour (including several photo setups and stops).
Lots of photo ops, though, which is great fun, even though I was disappointed that all the wax figures are cordoned off.
Admission on a weekend was $12.95/person, which seemed a bit steep for the museum's size and irregularly successful displays.

PROS: location, photo ops, some well done figures
CONS: price, Chamber of Horrors, size, some poorly done figures
