Laclede's Landing Wax Museum
Celebrity watchers will have the opportunity to see more than 150 famous people and historical figures depicted in wax at this downtown museum. See the likes of Henry VIII and his wives, Elvis, Michael Jackson and other notables even the Pope. The museum is located in the Laclede's Landing entertainment district, an easy walk to restaurants, clubs and souvenir shops. Receive two free children's tickets with each adult ticket. Winter hours can vary; be sure to call before going.
It's dirty, some of the displays were empty or covered up, body parts are missing. The basement is too frightening for children. Most fun we had was laughing about how bad the museum is. Don't know how this place is still in business!
It is dark and the building is not well maintained. The wax works seem like rejects that didn't make it into a better wax museum. Some of the cases were left empty or screened off with paper stuck on the windows. We didn't go to the horror section as we have 2 small children.
The most fun you can have there is trying to work out who the characters are!
My boyfriend and I were in St. Louis for the Arch and other great places, but this was not one of them. This was the only place we did not look into or research before going. It was in walking distance from our hotel and we had a coupon for $3 off each, but the $8 bucks was still way too much money for this joke of a wax museum. It was a very hot day and inside this place was twice as hot as outside. There was no one else in the place but us and the staff and now we know why. The wax figures look NOTHING like who they were supposed to be. The only enjoyment we got out of the place was laughing at what a joke the place was. There are no signs up telling you where to go so you're getting lost in a building that should be condemned. Not kidding at all. The stairs where the worst stairs I have ever seen and the floors felt and sounded like you were going to fall through them. Besides the figures not looking anything like the person they were supposed to be, they had parts missing off of them and dust like I have never seen before. The only other part of the place that was just ok was the part that was set up like a haunted house, and really the only great part of that is that it was very dark and my boyfriend jumped out from a corner and scared the hell out of me. So the only way you are going to enjoy this place is if you are just strange and find horrible things fun or you have the kind of people with you that you could have fun with no matter what kind of hell you are in. Serouisly though, there are so many other great things to see and do in that town you just don't need to waste your time or your money on this place. Plus I think children would be freaked out by this place. I have NO other complaints about that town. We had a great time and everything else we did was fantastic and the people every where we went were awesome.
First, the figures look NOTHING like who they are supposed to be. The clerks were foul. They were swearing back and forth. The floors and stairs felt like they might collapse at any moment. There was ceiling patches for the HVAC that looked as if it would fall through. There were sections of the floor that felt as if they would give way. In short, the building needs a build out, and is not safe. Do not bring your kids here. The attraction is not worth a dime. AVOID AT ALL COST. I would avoid if it was free.
My fiance and I went on a Saturday afternoon around 12:30pm. There was only a few people in there when we went in. The cost is $10/adult. I thought that was kind of steep, but I think in the end, it was worth it. They have Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, Snow White, Michael Jackson, Elvis, The Pope, John Lennon, Liz Taylor, about 10 US Presidents and a whole hallway dedicated to the life of Jesus. They have 4 or 5 scenes depicted such as the nativity scene, the Last Supper, and the crucifixion scene and they are amazing. There are about 200 models in all. I agree that some of the models are missing fingers, have accumulated dust over the years, and the lighting isn't the best. However, for a interesting and fun 45 minutes, I would recommend it. The Chamber of Horrors is nice too, with models for Saw, Jason, and Hannibal Lecter. Check it out if you are in St. Louis!
I check the website and deside to take my kids checked to make sure they were open. We went down there all of the neon signs were lite up and we paid to park $15 get the kids out of the car and it is closed, and that is when we noticed the little neon "open" sign was off. we then went to the joke store down the street and the owner there said that a lot of people come into the joke shop asking about the wax museum because it is closed. Will not go again.
Was in town on a getaway and I did alot of research before I actually went to visit. When I got inside I should have known it was going to be bad because President Obama did not look like himself. It was a complete waste of time and money. All of the figures are behind a glass and the hallways are so small and cramped you think something is going to jump out at you none of the wax figures look like the person it was suppose to be. I was so upset I just left out without even looking at the whole exhibit. Please try to find another wax museum to go to because they don't even give refunds for that piece of crap.
We had fun visiting the the Wax Museum. There are hundreds of figures to see. Multiple levels and a great Chamber of Horrors. The Place was extremely cool, like a cave. The ice cream was so good, I had a second one. They said they are always adding new things. I will visit again.
