Canadian Wax Gallery- Exterior

120 Banff Ave, Banff, Alberta, Canada
The Canadian Wax Gallery was located in the historic Cascade Dance Hall in Banff Alberta, Canada. The building dates from 1921, and was converted to the wax museum in 1963. The building is still standing, but the wax museum has long left its halls.

As you can see, the museum displays the most famous name in wax museum history.

The sign of the Canadian Wax Gallery. The museum focused on the history of Canada, as well as the United States and general world history. I don't have the year the museum closed, but it lasted at least through the late 1970s and perhaps into the 1980s. Now restaurants and shops share the facility in what seems like a very busy street.
