We did the combination Dungeon & Tussaud events. Well worth the money for the two together. The dungeon is very entertaining and interactive! As always the wax museum is amazing, pictures can be taken with all the figures!

I actually had so much at this. It's a bit "haunted house" kinda feel and cheesy but in a good way. The acting wasn't all that great but it was still very entertaining. Loved the history!

"Fun experience. A bit of history, a bit of killing an hour in an entertaining way"

They were running a special where the package of the Wax Museum and Dungeon was $30 total. Took advantage of it. We are semi-local, so it has been on our to do list and finally got to it. Was a fun way to spend an hour. Some history, some entertainment... just overall good time. If you are visiting SF and only have a very limited amount of time, this might not be the way I would suggest you spend it. However, if you are looking for an enjoyable way to kill a couple hours, the combo Dungeon and Wax Museum definitely hits the mark.

Same concept as in other cities' 'Dungeons' (e.g. London's) but still quite a lot of fun. Very interactive and the actors on our show were very good at involving the audience.

Caught and kept our attention with great stories from the city’s history presented in a spooky setting that enhanced the tales. Everything done with live performers which made it great!
