Hollywood Wax Museum- Marilyn Monroe

Another staple of wax museums is Marilyn Monroe. With her timeless appeal, and classic good looks, Marilyn graces almost every major wax museum. This figure is special because of the perceived motion it creates. So many figures just stand in static poses, but Ms. Monroe's figure looks frozen in time. This view recreates the famous scene from the 1955 motion picture The Seven Year itch.

Here is a close up of the figure's expressive face. The wax museum uses her extensively in their marketing.

Located at 6767 Hollywood Blvd, The Hollywood Wax Museum is in the heart of Hollywood. The museum features many more figures from classic Hollywood films, as well as contemporary movies and television programs.
