The museum is dedicated to the art of sculpting and working with wax to create life size 3 dimensional figures. Our museum features wax figures of some of the most popular individuals from the world of Film, TV, Music, Politics, History, Sport and the Arts from both yesterday and today.
The National Wax Museum Plus is the perfect venue for overseas or language school groups. It is an experience of sight, sound & entertainment which incorporates Irish cultural heritage and popular culture. There are translated sheets and activity work books for visiting Language School Groups. (Available on request)
The museum is a very popular destination for Language School Groups both in Dublin and the rest of Ireland. It’s a great chance for the students to discover Irish history and culture in a fun and educational way. The visual aspect of the museum, combined with audio and text descriptions of each exhibit are ideal for language school groups. It makes it easier for them to understand the content and learn the language. We will be adding new and exciting worksheets in the near future, to enhance visitor experience in particular language school groups, so keep an eye on the website for updates!
