Royal London Wax Museum- Exterior

Today I thought I'd feature an image from a wax museum outside the United States. The only wax museum not from America that I've featured before is Madame Tussaud's, but there are many such museums all over the world, and the Royal London Wax Museum is one of the most exciting. This shot shows the museum as a very popular destination, of course. The wax museum opened in 1961, and has been entertaining visitors ever since. It features mostly historical scenes, but has also had religious and fantasy tableaux as well. They had a grand re-opening in this building in 1971.

The sign describes the museum as a Josephine Tussaud wax museum, and claims to be the first Josephine Tussaud wax museum in North America. I always considered Movieland Wax Museum to have had the grandest building of all the wax museums, but the neoclassical architecture of this structure causes me to rethink that idea a bit.

The museum is located at 470 Belleville Street - Victoria, BC V8V 1W9 Canada.
