About
The World in Wax - Time travel backwards to meet heroes and villains from the past. Stand before presidents and queens, statesmen, artists, musicians, generals, explorers, religious leaders and heretics, the famous and infamous. At the Gold Coast Wax Museum each emerge from history, life-size, life like, almost as if they could speak, to bring again their glory and tragedy. Chamber of Horrors - Is one of its kind in the world. A guided half hour tour provides a vivid image of this painful past. The tour of the chamber includes over 40 instruments of punishment from different parts of the World, from the tongue tearer to the guillotine. Each instrument of torture described in illustrative story telling glory with historical background information. The Tour Guide is thought provoking about torture and punishment in today's "civilised world.

Each instrument of torture described in illustrative story telling glory with historical background information. The Tour Guide is thought provoking about torture and punishment in today's "civilised world. Until a few centuries ago, cities around the world had its scaffold on the market place and a gallows field at the gate. The rack below the city hall was a common method for sharp interrogation, and the executioner had a recognised trade: "The first stroke is the one that counts". Ecclesiastical lawyers devised special punishments for the exceptional crimes of witchery and heresy. The Spanish Inquisition used an elaborate range of instruments to fight against those evil works of the devil.

Excellent experience!
Jan 2020
My son and I really enjoyed our trip to the Wax Museum. Some of the figures upstairs are not quite realistic but the guided tour downstairs in the chamber of horrors makes up for it. The guide who took us for a tour was knowledgeable and made it an interesting historical journey through the ages, relating to the ways people used to be tortured. It is graphic, certainly but accurate and morbidly fascinating. I recommend a visit!

Guided tour a must !
Nov 2019
The guided tour itself is worth the cost of admission, very informative for history buffs or just the curious. Our guide seemed truly passionate on the subject which kept the tour very engaging. The figures upstairs were interesting, some of the figures seemed more life like than others, the recent Late Bob Hawke's likeness was fantastic.

Too scary for children
Oct 2019
The chamber of horrors is definitely not for children. It’s very graphic and the tour guide adds many more horrific details. I was initially reluctant to take my children, but was persuaded to do so by the ticket salesman, and I regretted it. We left the tour early. The upstairs display is great!

If you have been to Madam Toussards in London you will find this disappointing. It does not compare when it come to celebrities and likeness of models. If you have never been to a wax museum you will enjoy it.

The Gold Coast Wax Museum is an excellent way to spend a bit of time when stuck for ideas on what to do in Surfers Paradise. It's within walking distance of Cavill Avenue. After finding out the details on how long it takes to handcraft those wax figures, you give this whole place a whole new appreciation. Thank you for the tour and interesting facts to the owners and to Experience Oz for making the booking process smooth and straightforward.
