Remember in mid-October when I said we were going to the Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge during my son’s fall break? I know, it seems like yesterday, and now it’s December. Where does the time go?
Sorry, I digress. Anyway, back to the Hollywood Wax Museum… we did go. What a blast! My husband, son, and I, thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with some celebrities at the Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge. When I say hanging out, that’s exactly what I mean.
The Hollywood Wax Museum is interactive. And let me tell you, I (and my son) interacted. My husband was the designated photographer for the day. Thanks, honey!
Check out some of the photos to see what I mean:
And some of my favorite exhibits were the horror and creature section. Everyone that knows me, knows I’m a huge horror movie buff. Hollywood Wax Museum did not disappoint, either. Here are a few of my favorites:
We took so many more photos and I had a hard time deciding which ones to share with you, but I think you can see we had great family fun time. I never realized wax museums could be so entertaining… Hollywood Wax Museum (at all locations) was designed for interaction. They don’t want you just walking by looking, they encourage you to walk into the open sets and take advantage of the photo ops.
Hollywood Wax Museum facts:
- 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.
- Hollywood Wax Museum—Branson is the most photographed landmark in the region. It opened in 1996 and was completely renovated in 2009.
- Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge is the largest of the three attractions and has a VIP Observation Deck where visitors can take in the view of the Great Smoky Mountains. It opened in 2012.
If you’re looking for things to do in Pigeon Forge, I highly recommend visiting the Hollywood Wax Museum. It’s a great attraction to add to your family vacation.
