Walter's Wax Museum

Nearly 160 authentically dressed lifelike figures, ranging from Lady Godiva on her horse to five U.S. Presidents, made up the largest collection of full-sized wax statues in the United States. The figures, grouped in 30 tableaux were valued at $2 million. They were taken from art, history, mythology, movies and television. The largest scene was a 20 x 30 foot copy of Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper." Other groups included the Court of Napoleon III, Cleopatra and Superman and Cyclops.

Admission for adults $1.00; children under 12 - 50 cents.
