The Wax Museum – World in Wax – Time travel backwards to meet heroes and villains from the past. Stand before presidents and queens, statesmen, artists, musicians, generals, explorers, religious leaders and heretics, the famous and infamous. At the Gold Coast Wax Museum each emerge from history, life-size, life like, almost as if they could speak, to bring again their glory and tragedy.
The Wax Museum – Chamber of Horrors – A guided half hour tour provides a vivid image of this painful past. The tour of the chamber includes over 40 instruments of punishment from different parts of the World, from the tongue tearer to the guillotine. Each instrument of torture described in illustrative story telling glory with historical background information. The Tour Guide is thought provoking about torture and punishment in today’s “civilised world.

The rack below the city hall was a common method for sharp interrogation, and the executioner had a recognised trade: “The first stroke is the one that counts”. Ecclesiastical lawyers devised special punishments for the exceptional crimes of witchery and heresy. The Spanish Inquisition used an elaborate range of instruments to fight against those evil works of the devil.
