Sunil Celebrity Wax Museum

We went there with lot of expectations but it was not up to the mark. The advertisement was showing many statues which were not present. So there was little disappointment. Few good Statues and some average. It's just good to take a experienc of wax museum

Nice place with 70+ statues

Nice place with 70+ statues. Status of Mr. Bean, sharad pawar, rajnikant, messi, indira gandhi, atalji are marvellous. New place is spavious. Ample parking space. Should do something for bad condition of roads from mainroad to basement parking. If you are charging parking fee then shoulld spend some money on quality roads too.

Hyped & Price is too high.

Not an interesting place to visit if you come to enjoy the nature. Price of Rs. 150 is much if you consider the number of statues. However, kids will like this place. I was dissatisfied with the price I had too pay.

Must visit

This wax museum is located near Varsoli toll gate. It should not be confused with the one near Whispering woods opposite Neeta's Inn hotel. The museum is a worth watch with over 30 plus wax sculptures. There is also a scary house, a 9D theatre and mirror maze. What I liked was they also had a wax mold system similar to what I had seen at Madame Tussauds at New York. There is also a miniature Museum just opposite wax museum.There is also a live Chikki factory where you can actually watch fresh chikki being made.Though my visit was just for a day, it was worth it. Fee for just wax museum is Rs. 150 per head.

Artist has done a great jo

Every single person who is travelling to Khandala should visit this place. It has some great wax sculptures which will give you a feeling of real.Artist has done a great job. Ticket prices are nominal but for carrying camera also you need to have a ticket.

Finally found one of these in India

Went from school trip and was surprised to find a celeb museum, Kapil dev to Michael Jackson and etc all the famous stars were portrayed as a magnificent piece of art. This place is a must if you feel like clicking a picture beside a legend. There are lots of wax statues already, but I was told that even more celebrities will be portrayed in the coming weeks. Don't forget to bring your camera !!

Must visit Museum if you have not seen any wax museum

I have visited this museum twice. Entree Fee is around 120 Rs. But it is a nice wax museum, all statues of great celebrities as these are wax statues so you will feel like these are the real personality is standing in front of you. We can say it's Paisa Vasool Museum.

Not worth your time

Visit if you have absolutely never ever been to a wax museum before, or have simply too much time to kill without booze or movies. The museum has some 30 or 40 wax statues of different personalities, more than half of whom you're likely to recognize. The museum is air conditioned, and there are a couple of standard horror show/souvenir shops around. There are apparently a lot of imitations of this place, though I couldn't figure out who was original and who was the(talented) mimic.

Not much impressive

Couldn't understand why there were so many politicians instead of great leaders. Needs lot of improvement. Poorly maintained. Hope to see better idols next time.
