Gr8at: Memorable figures from the Wax Museum

I had planned on doing a wider description of Dublin’s Wax Museum, especially after I previously did an introductory style piece. But although the museum includes information about Irish history, its politics and its many famous writers, it will always be a very visual place and so my post will focus on that too. Below are a mix of musicians and very fictional entertaining characters, including the fifth James Bond, a boy wizard, the King of Pop and a very hairy Wolfman. How good do you think they are?

Elvis Presley

James Bond Pierce Brosnan

Harry Potter


The Simpsons in front of house

Evil Stepmother

  1. Hahahaha! Oh dear. The Michael Jackson one is terrible! I wonder if they repurpose them like they do with the Madame Tussauds ones. If you visit the London Dungeon you can see Bob Geldoff dressed up as a Victorian tramp hiding out in one of the hallways between shows.

    • Thanks for the heads up ha. I know the moment they are referring to with Michael Jackson but I don’t rate the likeness much either. I think the Elvis one is the worst one though.

    • I really wanted to reach over the rope to see if they had put a lightning bolt on his forehead. He has the pose of a choirboy. I don’t remember him being too academic. I think I’d have liked him more with a wand, on a broomstick or with Hedwig.
