About Mother's Wax Museum

Located in the suburban areas of Kolkata, Mother's Wax Museum has some striking models of popular Indian artists, sportsmen, and other celebrities. Covering an area of 5,000 sq. ft., the museum has about 20 life-size wax statues. This is a recent addition to Kolkata as it was only inaugurated in 2014. You will find poet Rabindranath Tagore reading here, while Mamata Banerjee is seen on her table. One can also see statues of Sourav Ganguli, Kapil Dev, Amitabh Bachchan, Mithun Chakravarthy, Manna Dey, Vivekananda and Paramhans. This is the second wax museum in India after one at Kanyakumari. Most of the sculptures have been curated by Susanta Ray.
