Louis Tussaud's Wax Museum

~Atlantic City, New Jersey ~

Here we have an awesome vintage brochure for the sadly closed LOUIS TUSSAUD'S WAX MUSEUM that once stood on Atlantic City, New jersey's famous Boardwalk. 

With wax figures by America sculptress Katerine Stubergh, the museum had no association with London's MADAME TUSSAUD'S but instead was aligned with one of her decedents, Louis. Despite it's popularity, the wax museum sadly closed to make way for casino development.

Dedicated to preserving the history of Wax Arts, and the unique stories of all those involved in its development, WAXIPEDIA strives to be the number one source of information on the subject of Wax Museums and their role in the attractions and entertainment industries. Through the sharing of photographs, brochures, movies and stories we hope to enlighten, engage and entertain all who discover us. 

As a resource, the WAXIPEDIA ARCHIVES was established in 2014 as a repository for physical examples and information pertaining to these educational goals. Consisting of thousands of items (ranging from century-and-a-half year old guidebooks to life-sized wax figures) the ARCHIVES are the backbone of WAXIPEDIA's mission. Anyone interested in supporting these efforts through donating are encouraged to visit patreon.com/WAXIPEDIA and contact us at waxipediaofficial@gmail.com. Items donated will be digitally scanned, photographed and eventually restored to be credited to their specific donors and made available to future generations of artists, designers, historians and fans.

  1. I remember this place , visited many times when we were in AC for conventions. They had wicker taxi push vehicles on boardwalk (nj rickshaw) you paid to have yourself pushed down boardwalk from convention center ... at the museum they had a cart with Phyllis Diller in it... you could pose as if you were with her in cart. The other atlantic city boardwalk place i favored was FAO Schwartz, “the biggest toy-store in the world” at one time. Life-size Stuffed Animals in their big windows & what a selection of high quality toys! I had a “wooden nickel” from there! Lol. RIP merry-go-rounds, Wax museums & quality toy stores.

  2. I loved the wax museum when I was a kid in the early sixties. I used to spend huge amounts of time gazing at the statues. Incredible place.
