The Wax Museum, located in the center of Old Town, offers faithful reproductions of the scenes and people that populated the Old West. Featuring a variety of historical figures like “The Great Pathfinder” John C. Fremont and “The King of the Trailblazers” John Walker, the exhibit also displays significant historical developments such as the work on the Comstock Lode (“The Greatest Bonanza” of the age) and natural backdrops that provide attention to the traditional settlements of pioneers, Native Americans, and Nevada’s wildlife. Scenes of town construction, saloon lazing, household life, and even a bear attack make the wax museum an invaluable addition to Old Town and ensure entertaining representations of the Old West for visitors in the years to come.
The Wax Museum is accessible through guided tours (after the gunfight) and follows the schedule for the rest of Old Town in going dark on Monday and Tuesday. It resides adjacent to the gift shop/zoo entrance.
