The Hollywood Wax Museum is a staple attraction near the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Spend a few hours out of the sun and snap photos with realistic wax depictions of your favorite celebs—everyone from Princess Di to Jackie Chan is represented. Kids particularly love the Hollywood Wax Museum, a long-standing family favorite at Myrtle Beach.
The Hollywood Wax Museum features lifelike wax figures of famous personalities from television, film, music, and history. As you race through the museum looking for your favorite celebrities, you also learn fun facts about the stars, thanks to trivia displays beside each figure.
In addition to wax figures, the museum features Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors, a princess-themed mirror maze with 288 potential turns, and a zombie apocalypse zone called Outbreak (best for older children.) Purchase tickets for each attraction individually, or save money by bundling all three into an all-access pass.
