Wax Museum in Prague - expensive and modest

A popular tourist destination in Prague, though, byto my opinion, the Prague wax museum is not so different from branches in other countries. If you happened to visit one of the museums of Madame Tussauds earlier, then there is no much point in going here.

Wax Museum in Prague

Speaking about myself, I still remember very well visiting a museum in bangkok and everything there looks about the same. Well, except that in Bangkok there were more figures and the room was more spacious. For example, there was a sculpture of Putin, which pleasantly agitated our tourists.

In Prague, the museum is quite small, and despitethat it occupies a three-story building - the viewing rooms are very small. At the very beginning of the exhibition, from the ticket office, you have to go through a narrow corridor with figures of characters from the Middle Ages. There are just examples of how people of that time looked like, and there are historical figures of the Czech Republic.

Not versed in history will be boring, sowhat is the most interesting sight you find on the floor above. People mostly run past and up, where there are figures of Jim Carrey, Schwarzenegger, Lady Gaga, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise and other stars of the world scale, which you yourself recognize in the photo.

In the reviews I saw opinions that the Prague exhibitsWax museum made with high quality, but, in my opinion - the usual quality, nothing supernatural, the technology is the same as everywhere else. From afar, the resemblance is striking, but it is immediately apparent that it is not skin, that hair is not real.

For the price of the ticket that the museum asks for in mya glance, there are not enough figures, it is stuffy in the rooms, and in general there remains a feeling that you have been deceived. The overall impression was spoiled by the carelessness of the organizers and designers of the figures themselves. I'm not talking about faces, but about the bodies of mannequins.

Some well, very crooked and unnatural, and inthe case of Arnie is so offensive. Neither should be noted, not all faces of the figures have a good similarity. Mick Jagger, for example, looks more like a Neanderthal than himself.

Historical reference

According to some information, the museum is the result of labor andthe persistence of Prague collector Zdenek Kochik, who had long been looking for opportunities and masters for creating sculptures and opened the institution in 1997. However, the museum is named after Madame Tussauds and is a subsidiary of the world famous brand, so I personally doubt about the persistent research and personal savings of one private enthusiast.

Wigur Museum Very, very high quality performance (with very few exceptions such as Tom Cruise or Mick Jagger). Each figure is played up with its own entourage and music. Not very cheap, unfortunately.

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
