Star Struck at Hollywood Wax Museum Myrtle Beach

If you see a celebrity in a wax museum, does it still count as seeing one in person?

Probably not, but I couldn’t help getting star struck on our visit to the Hollywood Wax Museum.

We spent an afternoon at Myrtle Beach’s Hollywood Wax Museum where we saw life-like wax figures of legends and Hollywood stars in music, television and movies.

Located in the popular Broadway at the Beach, this two-story museum is filled with celebrity figures.

Hanging Out With The Stars

Tristan was hesitant at first (keep in mind he is three years old) so he had to get used to seeing the figures frozen in a pose.

We explained to him that they are statues, which he does know about.

After our photo op with the very large King Kong, we made our way in to see the figures.

First off, let me say that whoever created the wax figures they did a great job. The figures really do look real!

Tristan really jumped for joy when we spotted Johnny Depp as “Jack Sparrow” from his favorite movie, Pirates of the Caribbean.

Right across from Johnny Depp was a very cute diner with the fabulous Marilyn Monroe. The boys had to sneak in a photo!

But wait, there’s more!

Three words for classic movie lovers: Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

I could not believe my most favorite Audrey Hepburn movie (besides Roman Holiday) was on display in Myrtle Beach!

There were so many wonderful set ups. We took photos of almost everything.

I’d show all of them in this post but then it would become a photo diary. Watch our video for more!

At the end of the tour we went through two special attractions: Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors and the zombie driven haunted attraction of Outbreak (that one is not recommended for young children.)

Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors

I really loved this, plus I’m becoming a fan of mirror mazes.

Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors takes visitors through a maze inside the Castle of Savannah to go on a mission and save Princess Hannah.

Did you know there are 288 potential turns in the maze? Unlike any other maze I’ve been through, this one seemed endless which made it fun.

Did we rescue Princess Hannah or take the emergency exit out? Find out on our video!


I am not one to do anything creepy like going into a haunted house attraction for Halloween, etc.

When we walked in to Chemacorp’s briefing room at the beginning of Outbreak, the video itself was nerve wrecking enough for me to chicken out!

So we let brave, Meshach go alone. He likes watching The Walking Dead anyway.

Since I didn’t go inside, I can’t tell you everything first hand other than what Meshach described.

He said it was scary and there really was someone dressed as a zombie at some point jumping out at you!

Meshach recommends Outbreak for anyone who loves a good scary attraction, definitely worth the visit.

      Hi Pam! Yes it did look real! Especially Ben Stiller, Julia Roberts and so many others. It would’ve been funny if one of them really were the celebrity playing pretend lol
