Nothing special to watch inside the Wax Museum

To be honest, there is nothing interesting to see anything inside the Wax Museum. Except that there is a horror zone inside the museum which does not terrify the visitors that much.It would be rather advisable not to visit the Museum in case you are running short of time. If you have enough time and willing to spend few bucks then you can visit this Museum.

Entire museum is made of wax

It is 45 km from Mysore and we can get a local car taxi from Mysore. It is good looking place for elders and children. Entire museum is made of wax. Several old articles have been displayed. Scientific parameters can also be seen here. I advise to go to this museum.

Shows various traditions of India

The museum has shown various traditions of India such as folk dance and other things. If you have been to modern museums then this will not impress you much.

Needs some maintenance

Mostly it is like a place to know the various musical instruments' names found with their respective wax statue players. Many are done by the museum owner. The wax model of the maharaja was excellent. It will be good if the museum receives a facelift and better maintenance. There is a horror world adjacent to this in the same premises.

Thrilling experience

Its a museum where everyone must visit, it shows all about cultures and human beings through the statues made up of wax, truly speaking the statues looks a lot real. It has also got one scary house which is really thrilling and exciting and trust me its worth visiting :)
