Have you visited any museum lately? If not, well you should. Museums are there to help us understand the world. A simple visit goes a long way because of the knowledge and inspiration it gives us. If there is a museum close by, why not take the time to see what's inside?
If you are going on a holiday on the Gold Coast, below are three must-see museums.
1. Gold Coast Wax Museum
Want to see the people who left an indelible mark in our world? See them all at the Gold Coast Wax Museum in Surfers Paradise.
This is Australia's largest museum of its kind. In fact, it is listed as a Great Wax Museum of the World. Mainly because it showcases more than 110 life-size wax figures that were crafted by the best international sculptors. Not to mention, the museum also showcases replicas of the British Crown Jewels, dioramas of Australian history as well as Nersery Rymes.
Besides these, the museum also features mythical characters – Count Dracula, Frankenstein, The Thing, The Werewolf, The Zombie, and more creatures from legend and folklore. If you want more of this type, then visit the Chamber of Horrors for a more spine chilling display.
