Day 1 in Prague: The Astronomical Clock gets maintenance every 100 years which happens to be this summer.; the Jan Hus monument; a terrific gallery show of works by Mucha, Dali, and Warhol; two of three wax museums with one bring really good (Edith Piaf) and one being delightfully bad (Freddy Mercury; and the Powder Gate, which is just down the road from my hotel. Tomorrow: marionette shopping and a marionette show #Prague#czechrepublic#travels#summervacation#waxmuseums#touristtraps
So we were waking down a street near our digs in StP and noticed some interesting characters on the balcony of this shopping centre. What we found was a wax museum on the balcony with some very dubious looking characters. Jax took pics of the more ghoulish characters that freaked me out!
Poor Angelina Jolie was looking a little worse for wear with part of her lipstick missing. And Brad looked decidedly haggard.
But well worth a look to appease our curiosity...and a few giggles. See for yourself.

Here is a beautiful rendition of Mary, Queen of Scots who reigned from 1542 - 1567. She is not known for any lengthy policy or world changing contribution but for her convicted involvement in a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I (who kinda IS known for her influence on an era). For her role Mary came out a head....**cough, cough**.....sorry, what I MEANT TO SAY was Mary LOST her head, by which I mean, they chopped her head off. **SPECIAL NOTE: The wax figure of Mary Queen of Scots ALSO has a detachable head** - This wax figure is part of the the original George L. Potter's Collection, which has been continually on public exhibition since 1949. This makes it part of the OLDEST and LARGEST display of its kind in the world. Some exhibitions are older, like the original Madame Tussaud's in London and the Musee Grevin in Paris, but the the waxworks themselves are often replaced with newer versions. These are nearly 70 years old and have been on show since George Potter bought them. They were sculpted by the famous GEMS of London and the wardrobe is by B.J. Simmons & Co. Ltd. : Official Costumer to The Court of St. James. - **Photograph by Timothy W. Randall** #waxipedia#waxmuseum#waxmuseums#waxfigure#staugustine#firstcoast#potterswaxmuseum#maryqueenofscots#art#travelgram#travel#travels#traveler#photography#photographer#photo#photoshoot#photograph#pic#pictures#picoftheday#history#costume#instagram#instadaily#instagood#insta#attractions#attraction @potterswaxmuseum
