Movieland Wax Museum

This wax museum is far superior to the Hollywood Wax Museum up north. The reason? Size and sets.

The gift shop in the middle of the museum is wonderful, it hasn't changed in at least 25 years. There is also a great horror section, which used to be an attraction called the Black Box, which was a walk-through narrated by Vincent Price himself.
