Now how awesome does this place look?
What you’re looking at is the outside of the infamous Hollywood Wax Museum.
Infamous for a number of reasons. For starters it’s not located anywhere near Hollywood, it’s actually in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee far far away from the riches and bright lights of the film industry.
The second reason you should approach it with some trepidation is not because King Kong might suddenly come to life and attack you, but because it’s home to quite simply some of the worst wax sculptures you’re ever likely to see.
Just to be clear, we’re not talking Madame Tussauds™ Hollywood, we’re talking the Hollywood Wax Museum – the very definition of so bad it’s good.
Google a few reviews and it doesn’t take long for a theme to start occurring:
Person 1: Worst wax museum we’ve ever gone to, the other one had melting figures. This museum most of the characters don’t look like the person, they are ALL too skinny. We need to read the signs to figure out who the person was.
Person 2: The most fun was laughing at how bad the figures were. If they didn’t have names posted on signs, they would have been hard to identify. The best I could tell they used three body types-small, medium and large. Nothing was close to life like and a couple looked like corpses.
Person 3: There were maybe 3 out of the whole museum that actually looked like who they were suppose to be. The hands weren’t positioned right and were knicked up, the bodies were all built the same with the same posture, and the clothes on most were not right. I had to read the sign on most to even see who they were suppose to be!
But just how bad is it? Should you really take the word of a group of strangers? Everyone is entitled to their opinion right? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that? Well, we have to admit, after browsing these photos we really did struggle at times (like the vast majority of people it seems!) to successfully identify exactly WHICH celebrity the wax sculptures were meant to be.
Now don’t take our word for it, see if you can recognise them yourself. Oh and do tell us which you love most…..everyone has a fav.
