Had a lot of fun running through Building 63’s Wax Museum.  It was the first time I had visited one of the wax houses, so I was kind of fascinated to see what they looked like.  A lot of the statues were surprisingly realistic!  I was also startled to find that it had a lot of artifacts attached, like signed guitars and CDs from famous musicians and bands; John Wayne’s hat; etc.  

The building also offers a Horror Chamber with creepy and spooky sights! 🙂  Oh, and there is a stand that let’s you make a WAX copy of your own hand!  Then you can color it after it is done! It was a really fun place to wander through, I’d definitely recommend it to parents with kids or to couples.  You can take pictures with the famous people!!

Address:  63 building, 60 Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul 

Directions: Take Subway line 5 to Yeouinaru Station.  Then take exit 4.  It’s about a 15 minute walk. You are looking for the giant gold building pictured above.  It’s visible a long ways away.  There are also some shuttle buses accessible from the subway stations.  I was a good distance from the place, so I took a taxi.  Tons of taxis sit and wait to pick you up there too.

Hours: 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Admissions ( 1,000 won is approx. $1): You can get a discount to the Wax Museum if you buy tickets to a combination of 3 different places in Building 63. But for the wax museum alone, the cost is:

  • Adults 19+ = 14,000 Won 
  • Children 3-18 = 13,000 Won
