Take the Kids to Questacon Get snap-happy with stars at the Wax Museum

If you've ever wanted to come face to face with your favourite singers, royalty, movie stars and more from around the globe, the Wax Museum in Surfers Paradise is the place to be.

While we can't promise these wax versions will be quite as talkative or scintillating as their real-life counterparts, the museum is a great place to visit during your next Gold Coast weekend getaway.

Best of all, it's within easy walking distance of Mantra Circle on Cavill, one of Mantra's holiday apartments on the Gold Coast - so you won't have to worry about finding your way there!

About the Wax Museum

Located at 56 Ferny Avenue in Surfers Paradise, the Wax Museum is the largest of it's kind in the whole of Australia.

It features over 110 life-size wax effigies of famous faces throughout history, as well as copies of the British Crown Jewels and dioramas of Australian history to marvel at.

Each of the figures on display in the museum has been crafted by leading sculptors, to ensure the best quality equal to international standards.

The museum is open seven days from 10am to 10pm, with special prices available for family or other groups paying a visit.

What's on at the museum

The museum features two permanent exhibitions - the World in Wax and the spine-tingling Chamber of Horrors.

World of Wax provides a series of snapshots of famous and powerful people, from current and former presidents, prime ministers, members of the royal family, dictators, and others from the fields of science, medicine, the military and more.

Of course, there's also a wide range of film stars and celebrities to feast your eyes upon, and for those who are brave enough to enter, a Chamber of Horrors in its own medieval dungeon.

Guided tours of the chamber will take you through a short history of everything grim and macabre, including medieval torture devices such as the rack and the breaking wheel.
