This is a fact that sometimes we experience moments of joy in our life which become memorable.
Yes, I got an opportunity to visit Wax Museum a week before and acquainted myself with such a beautiful experience.
I was just wandering with my family in the evening to look for a unique place where we can enjoy the evening. My car stopped at the gate of Mother’s Wax Museum.
My son had suggested to have a visit to Wax museum located at New Town area, which was not far away from my place of stay.
Finally, we had decided to enjoy this evening with my family at that place..
Mother’s Wax Museum is a wax museum located in New Town, Kolkata. This is situated on the 5th and 6th floors of the West Bengal Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation building. We have been informed that the museum has been established in November 2014 and it contains wax statues of more than 50 important personalities, including statues of Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
It is not only one of the rarest museums in the country, but apparently a popular one too. There are many factors that make this wax museum Kolkata an exciting place to visit and enjoy time and again.
First of all, Mother’s Wax Museum got its name from Mother Teresa, who had been a significant personality in Indian history.
Apart from that, it is inspired by Madame Tussauds in London.
I have heard about Madame Tussaud’s, which is a wax museum in London; It was founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud in 1835. Madame Tussauds is a major tourist attraction in London, displaying the waxworks of famous and historical figures, as well as popular film and television characters.
Some sculptures still exist that Marie Tussaud herself made. The gallery originally contained some 400 wax statue of important personality .
It is my desire to visit that place. But could not get the chance to visit there till date.
Finally, that long standing my desire is now fulfilling here to visit this Mother’s Wax Museum, which seems to be the same .
After having an entry ticket, we used building lift to come at 5th floor. There were so many visitors enjoying the moments.
We found that the wax statues in the museum have been segregated into departments such as — History & Leaders, Sports, Bollywood, Hollywood and lastly Music. It is Mother’s promise to have something special for all her visitors.
History & Leaders:
Much like museums, Mother’s Wax Museum does not fail to provide a tribute to the legends our country has housed, witnessed and remembered by. The stalwarts of our country have been frozen into their life-like selves for us to jump on the wagon to be able to travel back in time. Starting with Mahatma Gandhi, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, B. R. Ambedkar, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, etc are paid respects to in the museum.
Literature and Spirituality
As we know that Kolkata has always been a hub of art, literature, and culture. That is the real charm of the city. The city has brought to life some of the geniuses in these fields Mother Wax Museum celebrates them, such as Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda, Sarada Devi, Mother Teresa, among others. I am surprises to see the statue which is look like alive.
There are almost no corners in the world where people don’t like, talk and follow sports like a religion. It is almost like glue binding them together. Similarly, there is nothing above Sports that is enjoyed on such a large scale in India.
Mother’s Wax Museum pays tribute to some of the legends in the world of Sports by keeping statues of phenomenal people such as our very own captain Virat Kohli and Bengal’s pride, Sourav Ganguly. Lionel Messi and Maradona also grace us with their presence.
Bollywood & Hollywood
Who does not like Bollywood ? Or breaking into dance steps made vogue by our Mithun Da in the movie ?
We had not only enjoyed the pleasant song of Bollywood playing there; It surprised us to find there the beautiful statue of Mithun Da and Michael Jackson as well.
We have seen the statue of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, among others from Bollywood. The museum is gracing their presence from Hollywood are Audrey Hepburn, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, among others.
Nothing pulls the strings of your heart like your favourite beats to a song does or even your favourite singer. With Michael Jackson’s loss, the world cried uncontrollably. At Mother’s Wax Museum, we see the statue of Michael Jackson’s along with other megastars such as Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Hemanta Mukherjee, Kishore Kumar, etc. I have taken selfie with all that stalwart.
Mother’s Wax Museum houses several other celebrities that are simply a class apart. We have Uttam Kumar, Suchitra Sen, Mithun Chakraborty, Albert Einstein – it is a long list.
Really, that was a great experience for me. First, I came near my favorite statue of Mr. Bean and taken selfie with them. It surprised me to see that the statue is looking as if alive. I am the fan of this great artist.
We have seen over 50 full figured statues of different prominent figures from India and abroad. .
Many visitors were seeing the statue with a great surprise and feel happy to click their photo with their favorite star’s statue . One can easily check them out as per convenience. This is the better way to have fun with them and explore and brush up on our knowledge .
After spending an hour there, we were feeling a bit hungry and looking for some refreshment there. We luckily found a café on the sixth floor. After refreshing, we enjoyed the beautiful evening scene from the top floor.
I had a video shoot at the beautiful location. You can enjoy the same with the click of the link below.
