Jaipur Wax Museum

First Photowalk of Jaipur Wax Museum

It was 17-December 2016, when the long awaited gem of Jaipur was inaugurated. Bollywood star, Govinda, unveiled the wax statue of the legendary star Amitabh Bachchan, opening the wax museum for everyone.

Jaipurtalks brings you the 1st exclusive Photowalk of the museum. Before we proceed, let’s know a bit about the museum.

The Jaipur Wax Museum is now immortalized at this iconic property. An Initiative by Entertainment 7 Creative Ventures Pvt. Ltd, the museum is the world’s first wax museum to be installed at a heritage site. Through the past few years, the team has worked tirelessly at setting up the museum without affecting or altering the timelessly surreal beauty of the structure.

The museum is the brain child of Mr. Anoop Srivastava, Entertainment 7 Ventures Pvt. Ltd. who laid the intellectual foundation for this project with the Pink City Film Festival in 2006. A lifelike wax sculpture of the legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan was unveiled at this event.
The museum has segregated its attractions based on different themes and displayed it in the Shastraagaar and Vishraamghar sections of the Nahargadh Fort. The entryway to the museum features a 10 foot long bullet bike called Gati Gamini that is inspired by Rajasthan Tourism.
The museum tour begins at the ‘Hall of Icons’ where visitors can marvel at lifelike exhibits of iconic personalities like national heroes, celebrities, sports stars and cinema stars. Each exhibit is complete with a detailed backdrop or intricately designed sets.

The hall of icons also contains a special section for kids where they can meet their favorite characters like Spiderman, Ironman, Doraemon and Nobita. Come and experience a slice of your favorite icons’ life – make memories with their wax and silicon sculptures displayed in the most relevant, relocatable and memorable settings.
Rajasthan Tourism would be incomplete without a taste of royalty.
The ground floor of the Vishraamghar (warrior’s rest area) within the Nahargarh Fort has been re-designed to resemble a charming royal courtroom from the 18th century. Aptly named The Royal Darbar, this grand courtroom displays wax and silicon statues of Rajasthan’s royal lineage of Maharajas and Maharanis in traditional costumes. Visitors are also welcome to enjoy other features like traditional paintings, antique artefacts, a royal buggy and interactive statues.

What’s more? Grab your chance to be ‘The One Minute Maharaja’ – your shot at experiencing a life of royalty in full costume and real lifelike settings.

The grandest and the most exquisite exhibit of the Jaipur Wax museum has been artfully installed at the top floor of the Vishramghar. This area has been redesigned into a magnificent mirrorwork splendor – The Sheesh Mahal. The Sheesh Mahal has thikri mirror work, a craft that dates back many centuries. This enthralling mirror work has been put together by over 100 skilled craftsmen working day and night and displays nothing less than 2.5 million glass pieces to create spectacular optical illusions.

With real gold and gem artwork, stunning crystal chandeliers and other precious trinkets this ‘Palace of Mirrors’ is a sight to behold!
Another eye-catching feature of the museum is its well-stocked souvenir shop. The shop is built like a treasure chest, and is structurally the biggest treasure chest in India – a metaphor for the beautiful gifts you can take home to your loved ones that they are sure to treasure.
