I received a note from David Valdez, a reader of ours, saying that Movieland Wax Museum is closing down and moving to San Francisco.
They are going to auction off their wax figures on March 11, 2006, on location. The museum opened in 1962 and was founded by Allen Parkinson and later sold to Six Flags.
I remember going there with my dad in 1978. I don't remember too much about it. Maybe Knott's can buy some of the wax figures and create a small wax museum in their Roaring Twenties area?
They're auctioning off everything...
- wax figures of celebrities
- all props and sets
- fine art
- marble carved actual replicas of Michaelangelo's "The David" and "The Pieta"
- celebrity photos
- display cases
Got any memories of Movieland Wax Museum? Post a comment!
