On our recent trip to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, we were able to check out the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center. The complex features three fun attractions, and I have so much to tell that I am dividing the place into two posts.
First, I want to share the main attraction: Hollywood Wax Museum. This place is very interesting…if you like to keep up with celebrities, watch a variety of movies, or just want to see some very intricate art, I recommend you check it out on your next trip to the area.
Hollywood Wax Museum
You should have no trouble finding the building…it definitely stands out from the restaurants and attractions around it! It even has its own version of Mount Rushmore! Being the the largest Hollywood Wax Museum in the US, it’s easy to understand why the building is so big.
When you first arrive, you find King Kong to the right of the ticket line, with an employee there with a camera ready to snap your photo with the monster. That makes a great souvenir to take home from the museum!
Heading into the museum, you will see a number of celebrities, spanning a wealth of movie and television genres. There are newer, popular actors and legends from the classics. There is a music section as well, featuring the likes of pop stars (think Britney Spears) and country singers (think Dolly Parton). Beside each celebrity is also a small board that tells you more information about them, including:
- Name and age
- Why they are famous (notable movies, for example)
- Pet peeves
- Background info
Here are some of my favorite stars in the two-story wax museum…
We also hung out with a few of the celebrities while we were at the Hollywood Wax Museum. James sat with Forrest Gump while he waited for a bus…
And I helped Lucy recommend Vitameatavegamin!
At the end of the self-guided museum tour, there is a gift shop. Check out the variety of movie memorabilia they have!
Which celebrities would you like to see in wax?
Part 2 of my review will feature the Castle of Chaos and Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors. Look for it in a couple days!
