Pigeon Forge, Tennessee: Hollywood Wax Museum

A wax museum designed with selfies in mind. Visitors are encouraged to cuddle up with the waxy celebrities (or scream in horror while, say, Leatherface brandishes his chainsaw) and post the snapshots online. Outside is a movie Mount Rushmore and King Kong climbing the Empire State Building.

North edge of town, on the northbound side of US Hwy 441. Heading north, it's just north of the Cracker Barrel. Heading south, it's a quarter-miles south of the Titanic. Very easy to spot heading south; just look for the big heads and King Kong.

Even the outside of this building is exciting! We had to stop by for a photo op, though we didn't go in. As an artist, if I'm going to spend the money, I have to go to Madame Tussauds for this kind of thing, but this was still so cool to look at from the outside.

Every scene is a perfect set up for a truly glorious photo. Many of the displays are a little dated, but for me that only added to the appeal. We went on a Wednesday and it wasn't crowded at all. Thoroughly enjoyed it and got some epic pics for sure.

Also, as you enter you get your photo in the grip of King Kong.

You don't really need to go into the museum for wow factor. The building alone is fantastic, with a mini-Hollywood Rushmore that stands 6-7 stories high, and King Kong hanging off a skyscraper up top. Definitely more than a drive-by moment. The best impact is driving in from the north.
