Some of the figures rotate out so they will have different "people" represented. Allow plenty of time.

Let me state first that I absolutely LOVE wax museums. I have since I was a kid. In fact, THIS wax museum was the first I'd ever been to. The only problem? They've still got the exact same displays they had when I was a kid... 30 years ago. I'm not kidding. The only new displays I saw that were... More

This wax museum is located in the Historic District of Hot Springs. You can find it situated amidst stores, restaurants, hotels, bars, and the famous Bath Houses themselves. Like many of the attractions in this area of Hot Springs, the Wax Museum is unique and quite a bit of fun. I have visited this museum several times since I was... More

The museum was interesting and inexpensive. It was definitely something to do while we explored downtown hot springs. The wax figures, however, were not lifelike or good reflections of the people they were intended to be. They all seemed to need a good hair brushing. It was fun. But not on the same level as other wax museums.

My seven year old daughter loved the museum. I enjoyed the museum too, I have never been to a wax museum. It could use some updates but we had a great time.

My girl friend and I stopped into this little museum just to do something different. We had a really great time, however everything is pretty dated, and it didn't take more than 30 minutes or so to get through it all.. and that was with us taking our time. If you've ever been here before, you've seen it already, as... More

It doesn't appear that they have cleaned their exhibits in several years. Dust in the clothes and hair. The Kennedy exhibit had ceiling plaster on the character. Even at $10 it is not worth it.

This is a great place to see a variety of wax figures. Children will definitely love this place. They also have a store where kids can get a lot of colored mineral stones.
