The National Wax Museum Plus

welcome to

Ireland’s first wax museum was set up in 1804 by the famous Madame Tussaud and has had many reincarnations since. It is now one of the most popular visitor attractions in Dublin. It has moved from its original location in Shakespeare’s Gallery in Exchequer Street in 1804 to The Armoury building on College Green home to the former Central Bank of Ireland to O’Connell bridge where it remains today at the epicentre of the city.

Who We Are

History & Mysteries Behind The Wax Museum

The National Wax Museum as it was originally known was initially situated in Granby Row near Parnell Square in Dublin 1. It was opened in 1983 by the Lord Mayor of Dublin and was an exciting new addition to the city. The museum became a landmark with the Giant Cú Chulainn scaling the side of the building and many of our current visitors still remember the infamous tunnels and visiting on there school tour as children. It was then as it is now one of the most famous Dublin Museums.
