Mother's Wax Museum, Kolkata (Calcutta)

Tour larger than life figures at Mother's Wax Museum, India’s first wax museum located in an unconventionally shaped modern building in New Town. Mingle with wax images of Indian national heroes and celebrities and get a close up view of Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Mother Theresa, Diego Maragona and Spiderman. Dressed in their original attire, these well-done statues provide a great photo opportunity but you can actually do this with the idols in their respective setting like read a book with Tagore or sit on a presidential chair. A well-lit futuristic blue glass wall in the lobby has a collection of famous sayings for which these grandees are known for. The museum has two bonsai gardens with cafeterias on each side.

  • It's beautiful here. The wax models are ao realistic that you almost forget they are made out of wax. There is a restroom facility available here. Also, when you finish the whole tour of this place, there is a rooftop with an amazing view, specially at night and there are candies available to buy for little kids. They also provide you with a brochure when you enter the place. There are light rooms and a ghost house too. It's a fun place to be with friends.
  • Nice collection of statues from variety of sectors such as politics, sports, authors, Film stars, singers etc. There is also a cartoon and horror section. the atmosphere is worthy of the price of the ticket which is 250 rupees. A very good place to spend a good time with the famous people though they are wax made.
