An interesting retrospection of Greek history over the last 200 years or more. The exhibits look alive, which is a reward for the artist and his talent.

This is very impressive. However, if you do not know anything about the recent history of Greece (past ~200 years...) you are not going to learn from this exhibit - hard to understand the basis for all of the positive reviews.... Most of the wax...More

Since such Museums are neither sightseeing or entertainment venues, it is apparent that our informative leaflet was neglected by you (to put it lightly). If truly interested, you could have visited our website, to draw and process ample information about the themes, the unique nature...More

An overview of the local -and not only- greek history, presented with a unique, hair-raising way, that makes you relive the history. The wax characters look so alive, with their eyes so realistic, like they're going to talk to you.

Nicely done but for 6€ per person yo should be able to expext some information from the guide! Even the signs were very unsufficient on information! Wax figures are very well done!
