The Exhibits

The wax figures featured in The Wax Museum are constantly being changed and updated, with new wax figures regularly being added to our vast collection.

The Famous People area contains wax figures that are carefully crafted and dressed in authentically reproduced costumes of their times. From movie and music stars, to politicians and notable figures in history, you will surely recognise many of the faces in this area.

Information About The Wax Figures

Our collection of wax figures at The Wax Museum is diverse and some of the oldest figures in the collection, including a figure of Madame Tussaud, are over 50 years old. The oldest wax figures have been in this collection since The Wax Museum’s first location in Surfers Paradise in 1968.

As our figures are made of wax, they need to be handled and stored with the utmost care. They are stored in glass displays and kept at controlled temperatures throughout the year.

Suppliers of our Wax Figures

We source our wax figures from various suppliers throughout the world; including the United States, Canada, China, Britain, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. To commission a new wax figure costs around $60 000, so we are very selective as to what we ask for and the quality of the wax figures.
