Turn of the Century Wax Museum

19800 Hawthorne Blvd, Torrance, CA 90503

TURN OF THE CENTURY WAX MUSEUM is an entertaining, educational, and nostalgic experience of the early 1900's in America. A total of 35 set with 70 life-like figures re-create the mood and history of the times, and the famous (and some infamous) men and women of the period in their greatest moment. The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk. Teddy Roosevelt at San Juan Hill. Peary. Wilson. Edison. And for today's suffragettes, Ms. Susan B. Anthony. Be entertained by the likes of Lillian Gish, John Barrymore, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks and Will Rogers. Laugh at the antics of Fatty Arbuckle, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, and W.C. Fields. The TURN OF THE CENTURY WAX MUSEUM is fun for people of all ages. . . both youngsters and those who can still remember when. -From museum's description
