Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf- Albert Schweitzer


Albert Schweitzer, the famous Renaissance man, and notable theologian is honored here at the Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf. Standing in his African "adventurer's" outfit, he looks almost Twainesque. However, it is fairly accurate. Woe to the museum that puts figures of him, Mark Twain, and Albert Einstein next to each other.

A close up of the figure's face shows that it appears more like a caricature than it does a realistic person.
