The Wax Museum

Everyone in Korea knows about 63 building. It used to be the tallest building in Korea, made up of 63 floors (3 basement levels so the top floor is actually the 60th floor). The building itself houses offices and probably a few businesses but the draw for tourists are attractions on the basement levels and the top floor which houses an art gallery looking over the Han river.

But what did I do today? I went to the wax museum.

He looks pretty damned real.

It isn’t anything more than what it sounds like, a bunch of historical figures (and more than a few imaginary ones) sculpted in wax and standing around waiting to have pictures taken of them. I’ve never been to Madame Tussaud’s in Hollywood even though I only lived a few blocks away. So I was pretty blown away by how realistic the wax figures looked (for the most part).

Speaking of Madame Tussaud, she's here too.

It was an hour or so well spent. Some of the figures looked a bit dated and some weren’t as realistic as you might think they should, but it’s 12,000 won that doesn’t disappoint in the end. I took photos of as many of the figures as I could and put them together in one big collage. See how many you can name. Enjoy.

Is it just me or does everyone look more Asian than they should?

    1. There were quite a few that weren’t too great but there were a lot that were pretty well done. Even with all the strange and (slightly) misshapen ones, the others more than made up for them. To me anyways.
