A few weeks ago, I shared with you our plans to visit the Hollywood Wax Museum over the holidays. Since I am not a frequent guest of wax museums, in fact, I can’t ever recall going to one, I really had no idea what to expect. I did however know exactly where it was since I had passed the familiar facade a million times in the heart of downtown Hollywood. Unfortunately, it is not too often I find myself visiting tourist attractions as much as I really should.

You know who had a blast here? JetSet Dad. Yep! He was quite the jokester during the self-guided tour photo-bombing the different celeb wax figures and mock-up sets. I, on the other hand, found it very interesting getting up close and personal with each of these statues to see the fine-detail on each one of them.

The Hollywood Wax Museum is the longest-running wax museum in the United States. Designed for interaction, rather by just viewing, visitors can become part of the scene.

JetSet Tot really didn’t know who many of the figures were modeled after, so this tourist attraction might have been a little mature for her. I bet if they had a few more child-friendly movies represented, then it would have piqued her interested a bit more.

The entire tour is fairly quick and you will be in and out within the hour. So the next time you find yourself in the Hollywood area, consider checking out the Hollywood Wax Museum. Especially, if you are a film or pop-culture buff. It’s such a great place to act silly and hang out with your favorite stars.

  • Wow, those are amazingly lifelike. I have never been to a wax museum, and only to LA once. I’ve only seen the Civil War diorama here locally, but those sculptures capture the individuals down to the last detail.

    I love the wax museum here in Vegas–always so fun! It is crazy how real some of the people look!

  • Wendys Hat December 8, 2013

    I’ve been there before and it’s fun! They look so life like too. Hollywood is always a fun place to tour around.

  • Myrah - Coupon Mamacita December 9, 2013

    Would love to visit!

  • Alicia December 9, 2013

    I have never made it to a wax museum but have always wanted to go. This looks like it would be a good one to start with. I will definitely put this on my list of things to do when I plan an LA trip. The Charlie’s Angels on would be fun to take pictures with.

  • Claudia Krusch December 9, 2013

    I think my son would love that!

  • The Mom Jen December 9, 2013

    I went early in the spring and it was pretty fun! Some models are so eerily real looking. I was fascinated by Kobe Bryant and can’t believe how tall he really is!

  • Jenn @TheRebelChick December 9, 2013

    I went to the Hollywood Wax museum once! It was so fun posing with all of the characters!

  • Mark Krusch December 9, 2013

    I’ve never been to a wax museum. This looks like it would be interesting and it also looks like you guys had fun!
    Thank you for sharing!

  • Jayda December 9, 2013

    I love the Charlie’s Angels! That’s still one of my favorite movies of all time.

  • Donna December 9, 2013

    I just went to the one in Pigeon Forge and we had a blast! So much fun!

  • Amy Boyington December 10, 2013

    I want to go there so badly! But I honestly think it would creep me out once I got there. I watched something once awhile ago on TV where the real celebs came out and surprised viewers. I’d probably get paranoid wondering if they were all fake because of that, LOL.

  • Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell December 10, 2013

    I absolutely love them for all these posing possibilities! So much fun!!!!! I’ve only been once but you make me want to go back.

  • Ashley M December 10, 2013

    I’ve never been to a wax museum before. i can’t decide if I would really dig it or if it would creep me out!
