At the museum there are more than 100 wax figures with a scale of 1: 1 on display across three floors. With each wax statue, the museum’s sculptors have to spend 3-4 months working to make the character lively, with eyes to attract viewers. Each statue looks, but it all exudes their own charisma and style. In particular, each wax statue has the same character and measurements as the real character.
