Must See – Hollywood Wax Museum! Great for a day trip! #waxfan


You might think finding things to do in California is easy. But when you live in California it can sometimes be difficult because most of the time you’ve already exhausted all the typical tourist attractions. One place around here that has an abundance of things to do is Hollywood.  So I was excited about the opportunity to head on down to the Hollywood Wax Museum located on Hollywood Boulevard.
We all packed into the car and headed down to Hollywood. When we arrived I remembered how fun it is to walk down Hollywood Boulevard and all of the things there is to do. One thing I had never done was stopped at the Hollywood Wax Museum, I had always heard great things about it but it just never seems to be the main reason to head down there. Since the main purpose of this visit was to check out the wax museum and that was the first thing we did. One thing I can tell you if there’s a lot of parking around this location so when you arrive just look around you will quickly find a parking lot. Once inside the museum you walk to the Hollywood sign, they have the entire group take a group photo with it. They have it angled perfectly so that you see the whole thing. It was really cool. If you like your photo you have the ability to purchase it on your way out.

Once inside I was quickly amazed by how realistic an amazing these wax figures looked. At one point in time I caught one of them out of the corner of my eye and I was almost certain it was that star. I was bummed out to realize that it was just yet another amazing wax figure and this awesome Museum. Around each corner you will find more great sets filled with stars you know and recognize. Some are oldies but goodies like I Dream of Jeannie, I Love Lucy,Tom Hanks and some are more recent stars and celebs including grammy-winning music artist, reality TV stars and more. Tom HandsThey’re surely made sure to make it so that there is someone, everyone in your group will be excited to see. One section of the museum that impressed me the most was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles section. Mainly because I grew up watching the shows and movies and was really excited to see them at the Hollywood Wax Museum.
 When you see each star or celebrity closely by you will find an  information screen that contains a little bit about that star the movies they played an even the set that they might be found in. I really liked this added touch because to be honest there was a few stars I did not recognize. Or a few movie scenes from movies I did not see.

Most sets were open sets so you can get right next to your favorite star and take some fun photos for lasting memories. My daughter had so much fun going around and looking at all the pretty celebrities in there beautiful gowns and makeup, and quickly was asking for photos with many of them. Overall we had an amazing time we spent about an hour to an hour and a half peeking around and taking photos. They even have a horror section for those of you that are into the horror films. I personally did not go into the section as I stayed with her 3 year old but my husband and dad women and said that it was really cool and they had some amazing scenes from movies like saw.

If you’re looking for an interesting and unique day I would strongly suggest you plan a day out in Hollywood particularly on Hollywood Boulevard. Make your first stop the Hollywood Wax Museum as it’s less likely to be busy and you’ll be able to spend more time hanging out with your favorite celebrity and taking lasting memory photos. Here is a little background on the Hollywood Wax Museum:

Hollywood Wax Museum in Hollywood opened in 1965 and is located in the building that back in the early 1930s housed The Embassy Club, an exclusive entertainment industry nightclub. Each wax figure is a piece of art. Over time and currently, the Hollywood Wax Museum has worked with numerous sculptors, mold makers, and finishers to create life-like wax figures. Stylistic differences occur depending on which artists crafted the figures.

In addition to the location in Hollywood, CA. Visitors can plan their own family vacation to one of their locations in Pigeon Forge, TN or Branson, MO. All locations are open 365 days a year, so no matter when the vacation you will be able to visit. Be sure to visit The Hollywood Wax Museum on their website or Facebook page
