As promised, I recently took a day-trip with my adventure homies to play tourist at home and check out the Hollywood Wax Museum. Despite being a native Angeleno, I am always in search of things to do in Hollywood Land; I never shy away from tourist attractions. There's so much I take for granted living here and I've never been to any wax museums anywhere ever!
I am fortunate that I have some friends who enjoy this kind of stuff as much as I do -- and that don't mind mugging for the camera a bit. I mean, after all, the BEST thing about the Hollywood Wax Museum is that you can basically get right on top of their wax figures. You can touch 'em and pose with 'em and it's an absolute riot.
Naturally, I took quite an array of photos but after a lot of struggling, I managed to narrow it down.
First of all, we were received by the friendliest welcoming committee.
And when you walk in, you're greeted by the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Johnny Depp, a host of infamous horror movie characters and more! I could not resist a couple of selfies with the stars.
See? Just chillin' with the badass mother--effer on the left, and on the right, getting Angie's best tips on how to lure Brad into my clutches once and for all (she won't mind, she's busy with the kids).
And then - LOOK OUT!
That Daniel Craig. He has a mean left hook.
My favorite adventurer, though, is Indiana Jones!
While I stopped to discuss the latest in archeology with Indy, Danielle had some catching up to do with Mr. Travolta...
By then I needed a little break, though. So I thought I'd chill with Forrest for a bit. Unfortunately, he's a big talker. He told me about 92 kinds of shrimp dishes...
But once I'd had sufficient rest, I jumped on board the Titanic with Leo. Warning: this is easily the goofiest photo I've ever taken. I won't even say "don't judge me" because you should. However I could not stop smiling!
I'M THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD!!!!
Don't worry, though, as the museum is not just for humans. I could practically smell the sewer water and pizza when we came across these familiar faces...
COWABUNGA DUDE! (Bonus points if you can tell me which one is which!)
Hollywood Wax Museum is totally affordable and a ton of fun for groups. Families, groups of friends and couples were all checking it out when we were there. Adult tickets are $16.99 (if you need, kids are $8.99) and the museum is open from 10am to midnight, 365 days a year. It's in such a perfect location - so walkable to other must-see Hollywood spots. Make it a true Hollywood day or night out with the VIP Pass ($29.99 for adults, $16.99 for kids). It includes admission to the Hollywood Wax Museum, Guinness World Records Museum and Ripley’s Believe it or Not!
Such a terrific day. Thanks to all who came with! When all was said and done at the museum, we posed for one last photo with some new lady friends before walking down the street for burgers and shakes. ;)
Don't mess with us.
I can't wait for our next adevnture day! I've heard mumblings of visiting a local site famous for being featured in some classic Star Trek moments....!
