  • The hall of religions: with scenes on Hinduism, Buddhism, Catholicism and the last supper.
  • The chamber of horrors: this area could not do without some characters such as Freddy Krueger, Frankenstein or Dracula.

Dying of laughter

The wax museum leaves plenty to be desired. The figures seem to be made of plastic rather than of wax and any similarity with reality is pure coincidence. The figures in the Wax Museum are notably worse than those of museums such as Madam Tussauds of New York.
