History of the Wax Museum

Ireland’s first wax museum was set up in 1804 by the famous Madame Tussaud. It is now one of the most popular things to do for families in Dublin. It has moved from its original location on Granby road, to The Armoury building on College Green home to the former Central Bank of Ireland to O’Connell bridge where it remains today in the heart of Dublin.
