63 Wax Museum - Meet World Famous Celebrities!
The 63 Wax Museum opened in 2008 and is a favorite amongst visitors to 63 City. Guests can tour the Museum and take photos with wax figures of historical personages including world-renowned musicians (Schubert, Bach, and Beethoven), painters (Salvador Dali, Picasso, Van Gogh, etc.), as well as a number of famous athletes. As many as 70 wax figures made by a renowned Japanese artist are 1.5 times larger than actual size to provide greater detailed and appear life-like in photos. ‘The Last Supper’ which took 3 years to complete, is one of the most popular pieces in the museum. Visitors are provided with costumes to wear while taking photos of themselves as Jesus’ hypothetical 13th disciple. There are also wax figures of Hallyu Stars (Lee Byung-hun, Choi Ji-woo, Lee Young-ae and Bae Yong-joon) and figures of people featured on a number of banknotes as well. The museum offers visitors exciting hands-on programs, making this tour anything but a typical day at the museum.
