Was quite expensive for what it was. 50% of the figures were very well done but the others didnt look like a true image of that person. The underground torture tour was very interesting. NOTE there are NO toilets on site.

Although my 9 yr old enjoyed looking at the wax figures, what he loved was the history lesson in the dungeon of horrors. Our guide was a great story teller. As far as my child is concerned, the more gruesome the better!

This was really worth visiting , as the guide was giving us the history and the way life was back in the 1700's or 1800's. The wax figures where really good to see.
