"Enjoyed our visit"

We were able to get in free as we had bought old town trolley tickets which was a bonus. The staff were very helpful and it was nice and warm inside. Some of the figures are very life like especially Tiger Woods, Usain Bolt and Amy Winehouse. But being British I was slightly disappointed in our royal family. I think it was the Queens hair, she looked more like Helen Mirren.

"For Free go - otherwise look for a "Deal" !!!"

We ended up paying - 2 for $30 - which for that price was at least 'OK" / entertaining The first wax figure you meet - does not even have a name - not a good beginning !! Others had a name - but no real "story / bio etc - come on !!! The flow of the Presidents was "weird" Some of the figures were good but others were NOT even close !!! (show the picture it came from might be a good way to go) perhaps even some videos The app feature - was "childish" - made no sense to me - a waste of phone battery !! Overall - the LIST price is crazy - I think they want $25 per person - NOOOOO don't do it - get a deal or "find something else to do" I understand there may be a licensing / permission issue: but - Now lets see - the museum had Lebron James - Michael Jordan - Paul Pierce and NOOOOO Baseball figures - ugggggggg

"Free with Old Town Trolley Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 05, 2019
I've never been to any wax museum but I found Dreamland Wax Museum to be really good and fascinating. Our entry came free with the Old Town Trolley Hop-On-Hop-Off tour, which was really excellent. My personal favorites were the wax figures of the US presidents, Princess Diana, Leonardo DiCaprio and Peter Dinklage. There were also sections where you can dress up in robe with matching crown and scepter and pose next to the wax figures of British royals. Great for photo ops!

"Road trip. Free entry with the Hop on, Hop off bus tour."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 13, 2019
Because it is a free entry with the bus tour ticket, it is well worth the visit. Previous comments state the bad likeness of the figures. This is not "really" the case. On the whole they are great. As a Brit it was great to get a picture with the Queen. It would have been 5 stars but for the staff in the gift shop.

"A good way to pass 15 minutes"

Reviewed October 08, 2019
We got free tickets with our trolley bus tour. We were surprised at how good it was especially the Presidents gallery. Coming face to face with those figures from history was good. They made a real effort with all of them except the present incumbent! Some of the celebs didn’t look like who they were supposed to be, Audrey Hepburn and Marlon Brando for example, but others were fascinating. We enjoyed it but the area around the museum was pretty awful, lots of down and outs. Boston is not that great generally.
