Some of the wax figures in here we very good, some of the would not have been able to recognise without the sign next to it.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you were impressed some of our exhibits. I would say to you that each wax figure is an artist's impression of the likeness of a certain person, and thus the level of exactness can vary. We like to think that this variance adds to the fun of the experience somewhat. We appreciate all feedback, so thank you for your review.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Highly disappointed with the museum, much smaller then I imagined especially the childrens area a few plastic characters thought I had missed the childrens area initially. Santy was a nice touch though.

Thank you for taking the time to review our museum. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed our Santa exhibit. I'm sorry that you felt that the size of the museum was small, but we can only work with what space we have, and we try our utmost to maximise the space without overcrowding the museum.
We aim to produce a varied experience that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. This unfortunately inhibits our ability to have larger areas devoted to particular themes. That being said, we have a children's tunnel along with plenty of well known children's TV characters, a film room showing children's films and plenty of characters that children would enjoy in other areas of the museum also. Not to mention the Wax Factor, which children appear to enjoy quite a lot.
I hope that you were able to enjoy all of these sections and didn't miss out on any of them. Thank you for your review, as we do appreciate all feedback.

“Is that it.”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Was expecting so much more. The only exhibit I enjoyed was the horror room. The rest was just thrown together. The inclusion of some people is also very questionable. Our rich history has produced many people of better character than dunphy, gerry ryan and Gay byrne. Its laughable to also have ahern and paisley as exhibits! I was embarrassed by the place to be honest.

Thank you for taking the time to review our museum. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed our Chamber of Horrors, it's one of the most popular rooms in the museum. I'm sorry to hear that you disagree with the inclusion of some exhibits. We are always trying to add to and update the museum, but it's a complicated process due to the limited space and resources at our disposal. Bertie Aherne and Ian Paisley were both heavily involved in the Good Friday agreement negotiations, hence their inclusion in the Good Friday Agreement exhibit.
We do appreciate all feedback, so thank you again for submitting your review.

“loved it”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

My 13yr old son loved this. Models looked like the person in most cases. Imaginative displays and a good mix of activities.

“Great place to go.”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We spent the afternoon walking around the wax works. Very interesting and enjoyable. The hall of fame was great and so was the music room.

I would definitely recommend that you go.
