History does not have to be boring. Take a fun journey through history at the Gold Coast Wax Museum.
The World in Wax Exhibit features 110 life-size wax figures and dioramas of Australian History. Learn about the famous celebrities and people who have shaped the course of history. See wax figures of Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus, Michael Jackson, former Prime Minister John Howard, former Prime Minister Bob Hawke, President Barack Obama, past President John F. Kennedy, Adolph Hitler, King Hussein, President Nasser, Mohandas Ghandi, members of the Royal Family, and many others.
Crafted by leading local and overseas sculptors, the life-like figures have eyes that are so anatomically real they seem to follow the viewer around. All the details from the hair, to the costumes and accessories create a snapshot of history.
Aside from featuring wax figures of real people, World in Wax showcases mythical characters from fiction such as Count Dracula, Frankenstein Monster, The Thing, The Zombie, The Werewolf, and many other creatures of myth and legend.
The other exhibit is The Chamber of Horrors. As the name implies, it shows the horrors of human history. You will see authentic records of man's inhumanity to man, from medieval torture devices to that most infamous of all, Hitler's gas chambers and death camps. This fascinatingly dark exhibit features torture devices and other gruesome instruments.
The Gold Coast Wax Museum is open daily from 10am to 10pm. It is located at 56 Ferny Avenue, Surfers Paradise within walking distance from our Gold Coast Accommodation Apartments.
