2)the 2nd  hall is known as «the Conservatory», where visitors can view life-size wax models of sport, TV and film personalities. Accurate measurement and photographic preferences, photo all the way round the body, they are taken from many angles for the statue to be as lifelike as possible; it’s also very important to capture the personality. Also «multimedia environment» effect is used to create a special atmosphere.

3) next to «Super Star» in the Grand Hall. This room is peopled by revere historical, political, military and royal figures from Henry 8 to Gorbachev. Pr minister of GB and from abroad.

4) the next hall is undoubtedly the most famous  of the waxwork rooms «The Chamber Of Horrors».
