The Hollywood Wax Museum has been around since 1966 and is the only wax museum devoted completely to Hollywood celebrities.
They feature over 300 lifelike figures sculpted from wax and painstakingly fitted with makeup, hair and costumes, displayed in settings from their most famous performances. New figures are added regularly at the Hollywood Wax Museum, and each one may take months to create.
One of visitors' favorite things to do at the Hollywood Wax Museum is pose for photographs with their favorite stars.
Hollywood Wax Museum Review
An old-style Hollywood attraction leftover from the Boulevard's less-than-glitzy past, the Hollywood Wax Museum does not appeal to this writer, especially with entrance prices that cost almost twice as much as seeing a first-run film at Grauman's Chinese Theatre down the street. However, there must be a reason it's the longest-running wax museum in the US, and others seem to enjoy seeing their favorite stars and starlets sculpted in wax.
Getting to the Hollywood Wax Museum
Hollywood Wax MuseumStars have been gathering on this spot since before it was the Hollywood Wax Museum - it's the former home of the Embassy Club, an exclusive nightspot in the 1930s. It's on Hollywood Boulevard near its intersection with Highland.
