Goa is a beautiful place to visit with some lovely beaches, churches, casinos, markets and a lot more. If you are on your trip to Goa, you might have heard about the Wax Museum in Old Goa. This Wax museum in Old Goa is named as “Wax De Goa”. It has Wax Statues of many popular celebrities, mathematicians, leaders and some theme based statues as well. There are many Wax Museums in many Indian cities now, the last time I saw a Wax Museum in Lonavala by Sunil Kandalloor.
Some years back Madam Tussaud’s of London was only the Museum known to the people. However, as the talent is now available in India as well, you can have it all here. Though the statues may not look as perfect as you want them to be, but the hard work is clearly visible.
Wax De Goa is located in Old Goa at a walking distance from Se Cathedral. It is 32 kms from Margao and 12 kms from Panjim, the capital Goa.
Old Goa is the home to the popular wax museum of Goa – “Wax De Goa”. Each statue at this museum has natural hair but the eyes and teeth are artificial. Wax De Goa has more than 30 life-size, statues of popular Indian and Foreign personalities representing various heritage, religions and themes. There is a few statues which gives a message like ‘Say No to Drugs’ which shows the side effects of drugs.
As you enter the Museum you will get a female guide who talks about the statues at the museum, she will explain who the statues are of, what they actually represent and how long did it take to complete the sculpture. The guided tour can be opted in English and Hindi.
Along with Wax Museum you can also visit the Haunted House and the unique 12 D Cinema in the same premises.
Let me show you the Statues which you will be able to find at Wax De Goa.
