They don’t call it the The National Wax Museum PLUS for nothing. It’s not just wax figures who reside in this awesome Dublin attraction, there’s a whole day’s worth of stuff to discover. From the Science and Discovery Zone, to the Great Hall of celebs and musicians, to the Chambers of Horror, to the Wax Factor studio. Fancy immortalizing yourself with a song?
The National Wax Museum Plus lies just a 2-minute stroll from Trinity College. Step inside and encounter a number of familiar faces, with an Irish flavor. In the Grand Hall you’ll find Pierce Brosnan as James Bond 007, U2, Liam Neeson and Ronan Keating are all up for selfies, if you are. So is Gollum from Lord of the Rings.
There’s plenty of kid-friendly activities in the Kids’ Area, education galore in the Science & Discovery Area, while the Time Vaults take you through Ireland’s remarkable past, uncovering events like Viking-slaying monks and even the Good Friday Agreement peace talks in Northern Ireland.
In the interactive Wax Factor Studio you can record a song and even make a music video for it! Choose from hits like Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean or We’re all in this Together from High School Musical – there’s a tune for everyone. Even better, buy it on a disc in the gift shop afterwards and share it with friends, family and prospective music producers back home!
