The experience was wonderful. The people you would like to see up close or even pet and to tell you something that you can't hear. I will probably never experience something like that again. Even though I'm handicapped, I'm very happy to have made the trip that I gave my husband with him. I can only recommend it to everyone not to wait until you are old.

Fast hassle free entry. Brief explanation of the Corona measures. I was there with my daughter and we really liked some of the characters. A few of the older ones weren't quite as lifelike, well. But for the price, we were surprised at how amazing and lifelike some of the figures were. All in all, recommended and not too expensive. Thumbs up!

The time savings that we hoped for by buying the online tickets didn't really work, since you had to queue in the same or only row as if you bought the tickets on site. Since these tickets still had to be exchanged for the final entrance ticket.

Small but very beautiful, of course no comparison with Madame Tussauds but it has its own charm. It's definitely worth it and it's not expensive either. A clear recommendation!

Very beautiful. Where to meet the Queen and the Pope in one place.
