Prague's wax museum isn't the biggest wax work museum in the world but some of the wax works are quite good but again not the best I have seen. Most of the wax works are of famous political world figures such as Vladimir Putin, Adolf Hitler and of celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Tina Turner , Freddie Mercury and Marilyn Monroe etc.
Due to the museum being quite small you could be in and out in about 20 minutes.
If you're expecting anything like Madame Tussauds don't waste your money.
The museum is relatively small and most of the wax figures are those of local politicians. However, if you have an hour to kill and a few bucks to spare, it may be worth seeing. We still enjoyed it even though it was nothing out of the ordinary.
We wanted to pay our tickets with a credit card. They made a fuss because we did not tell them that we wanted to pay by card PRIOR to them issuing the tickets. This seemed to cause problems, so if you intend to pay by card, I suggest you inform them upfront.
Notable wax figures:
Charlie Chaplin, Harry Potter, Franz Kafka
Price is approximately 150 czk for Adults.
Opening Hours: 10:00 AM To: 9:00 PM
There can be seen figures of people lived in different times – from painters, through musicians and socialists to contemporary people. Also there is a place inside which is made as a niche in the wall. It walls are covered with mirrors and they’re showing composition of pictures which are looking at the mirrors. It is very interesting – 5 euro entrance.
Wax Museum is located near to the astronomical clock. Entrage fee is 3E/ each and you can make pictures, see movies and of cource see some persons like Elton John, Dalai lama, Lenin, end many many others.
There are many figures from Czech history here, from Austrian emperors to the first Czech Communist President Klement Gottwald as well as cultural figures such as Antonin Dvorak, movie director Milos Forman and playwright-turned-president Vaclav Havel.
The only thing that seems to be lacking is information which puts the characters in the context of their time.
Admission: Adults - 119 Kc; Concessions - 49-59 Kc.
