Meet Your Movie Legends and Feel Star Struck at the Hollywood Wax Museum of Myrtle Beach

Have you ever dreamed of meeting face-to-face the star of your favorite movie? I have nurtured this desire for years, always wondering how tall he or she really is; what it really was like to be next to him or her in one of the most memorable movie scenes Hollywood impressed me with. My dream came (almost) true during my latest trip to Myrtle Beach! Oh, don't let me get ahead of myself, so let's start from the beginning...

It was a bright, hot summer day, on Hwy 17 in Myrtle Beach. I stopped at a traffic light next to the Myrtle Waves water park when my son spotted it. "Daaad, look! It's huge!" My son's face lit up, with his wide eyes glued to an almost natural replica of the all-mighty Kink Kong hanging on a side of the Empire State Building. My heart almost stopped! The giant ape was truly enormous, strong and mad, its paws tightly gripped on the building, looking for the blonde, Ann.

With almost automated moves, I turned the car into the parking lot, which triggered loud cheers from both my son and wife. I got out of the car and there it was, the Hollywood Wax Museum of Myrtle Beach, a refreshing view after a few hours on the road. I had read about this landmark before I hit the road for my annual family beach vacation. In a short time, it has become a Myrtle Beach landmark and highlight of Broadway at the Beach. We bought the tickets and started our journey in a world of glamour and talent, beauty, entertainment, and show business. We stepped into the Hollywood Wax Museum of Myrtle Beach.

The first steps inside the museum took us back in space and time. A few exhibits down the way, I felt my heart beating faster when I found myself in a variation replica of the famous Java Dreams painting, by Chris Consani. Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Humphrey Bogart were waiting patiently, while Elvis Presley served from behind the bar. "Sweet tea for me, maestro," I felt like shouting.

Clint Eastwood gave me chills. "You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig." I shared the Man with No Name's quote from "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" with my son, impressed by how natural and alive his wax statue is.

I never thought I would question the gifts I give my wife, but I had to glance at her earrings after we run into Audrey Hepburn sitting quietly at a table in a beautiful and elegant scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Looking at her, I remembered her famous quote:  " You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you." I have never been cheap with the gifts I made to my sweetheart so I felt good about it!

Right around the corner, I run into John Wayne! Marion Mitchell Morrison by his real name, John Wayne's figure was impressive to say the least. The wax statue perfectly reflects the enduring American icon's rugged masculinity and demeanor. I truly felt honored to sit next to the statue of the actor named 13th among the Greatest Male Screen Legends of All Time by the American Film Institute.

One of the great screen actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age, Elizabeth Taylor is charmingly represented in a colorful Egyptian scene from Cleopatra. My wife and I are still endlessly fascinated by the glamour and beauty of the woman who embodied the idea of feminine beauty in America.

We ended our tour with a "Roar," when we run into the charming Katy Perry's wax statue. Vibrant and lively, Katy invited us onto the dance floor to enjoy the music and the sparkling mirror reflections of a concert-like ambiance. We spent a few minutes dancing, jumping and laughing before we said good bye to Katy, who stared at us goodbye with her beautiful smile.

There is so much more to see and admire at the Wax Museum of Myrtle Beach. I did not want to disclose all the wonderful surprises you can enjoy while visiting the museum.
