In addition to the wax figures, guests of the Wax Museum can see the actual voting booths from the controversial 2000 presidential election, original oil paintings from Harvey Dunn, and other intriguing artifacts.
During your visit, be sure to also check out the gift shop for one-of-a-kind apparel, decor, souvenirs, gifts, and much more!
