Wow, this place was lots of fun! I never realized how life-like these wax figures are until I saw them with my own eyes!
The history of Lancaster County, William Penn, the Native Americans of the area, Mennonites and Amish who settled there, all come to life in awesome displays depicting life-like scenes of days of old!

All of us were mezmerized by the entire exhibit-which has voice-over explaining each and every scene.

The admission is reasonable and though I usually stay away from tourist-traps, this is not like that at all. This, is a museum of the history and lives/way of life of the people and area I have so come to love and admire.
A must-see when in the Lancaster area!

PROS: Life-like wax exhibit, many scenes and very informative and fun
CONS: None

We visited this museum on our vacation to Lancaster. I have never been to a wax museum but I thought this was great.There 32 different scenes of how Lancaster county became what it is today. There are some fun interactive displays. Your self guided tour ends with a 10 minute animated Amish barn raising. This is my son's favorite museum and we have gone through it several times. I highly recommend it for a fun and educational tour of the history of Lancaster county.
