Everyone knows this blog covers wax museums from time to time, not because I like them or anything, but just to highlight their awfulness. Well, I have sad news to report. The World’s Worst Wax Museum is set to close after fifty-something years. The people of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk in England can say cheerio to the flock of tourists who visited Louis Tussauds (named after the great-grandson of Madame Tussaud). The hundreds of questionable showbiz wax figures mostly date from the 1970s and 1980s, and are some of the worst waxworks ever created. But the museum has become a bit of a cult favourite due to the “worst” label, so I’m sure there are a few people out there who are crying tears of wax. The museum’s items will be sold off at auction. I don’t care either way, but I really wish I had the money to buy the WAX ABBA. Money, money, money…must be funny…in a rich man’s world.
Oh, in case you couldn’t figure out who’s who, here’s some help.
