  • Entry ticket for this museum is RS 50.. This is actually Melody world wax museum, as the name indicates they have kept variety of musical instrument from the various place of world... Here all the human doll made of wax are looking similar.... Those who are interested in music will like this museum, rest all will feel waste of money and time.... Definitely kids will not enjoy... We should really appreciate them for the effort made by them to make the doll,to collect those musical instruments and for maintain them....
  • This is not a typical wax museum. if you expect it to be like London wax museum you will be disappointed. The name Melody wax museum came because it showcases Indian musical instruments. If you are a music lover and want to know about Indian musical instruments then it is worth going. It is not run by the government but by a private institution. The maintenance of the wax museum is not up to the mark due to the non availability of funds. That is why they are charging a little bit more. The entry fees is rupees 50 per head.
