London Wax Museum

5505 Gulf Boulevard, St. Petersburg, FL 33706

The London Wax museum featured over 120 life size, and realistic wax figures. Opening in 1963, the museum proved to be a very popular tourist attraction. For over twenty years the museum delighted visitors with it's mainly historical exhibits. Notable features of the museum was its Big Ben clock tower sign, and the miniature Queen Mary ship. The museum began as the Josephine Tussaud's London Wax Museum, but later became the Louis Tussaud's London Wax Museum. Although the museum did feature some Hollywood stars, and a horror chamber, the static tableaux could not compete forever with other amusement offerings in Florida, and closed in 1989.
