Gone To The Wax Museum

"We must no more ask whether the soul and body are one than ask whether the wax and the figure impressed on it are one."

I had been wanting to see the
Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf for a while. Today was a good day for it. J and I took the F train to the Wharf, and after a quick snack, we used a Facebook Deal I bought months ago for half off admission for both of us.

The front of the museum has a rotating display with three celebrities:
George Clooney, Salvador Dali, and Paris Hilton.

Before we entered the main gallery, I posed with
President Obama.

The very first part of the main gallery was this well known scene from
James Cameron's 1997 film Titanic.

The next room had world leaders and dictators. I turned around, and a scene with
Hitler, Mussoilini, and Hideki Tojo startled me.

There were a ton of great statues in this museum as well as some that weren't so great, but I think my favorite part was the three dimensional representation of
Leonardo da Vinci's painting The Last Supper.

I also liked the section with the San Francisco sports icons.

This scene was hilarious to me.
Sylvester Stallone as Rambo is waiting in the trees while the late Steve Irwin is facing off against wildlife.

The last section of the museum is basically a series of collages of famous people. This one had a group of music artists. This might be the only instance where you would see
Eminem standing next to a jukebox with Miley Cyrus.

This Wizard of Oz was well done. I really liked their poses.

When we first got to the museum, I was excited about seeing all the cool statues, but after the first half, the novelty definitely wears off, and it just starts to feel creepy. While I wouldn't necessarily discourage someone from going, I would have a hard time saying I would go again. It was fun. Then it was a little freaky, and then it was a relief when we reached the end.

The Last Supper was definitely my favorite part. If you're ever in Fisherman's Wharf and want something a little different, it's worth checking out one time.
