Located at a distance of just 1 km from the Ooty Railway Station, the Ooty Wax Museum is one of the top places to visit of the place and is housed in a 130 years old charming colonial mansion. Besides, the museum also houses full depiction of the life of a rural household. There are sites where you can see Indian potters and villagers doing pottery and farming, cultivating etc.; all carved out in wax.
Conceptualized by an IT professional who goes by the name of Shreeji Bhaskaran; the wax museum was constructed and inaugurated by Sri. Santosh K. Mishra, Collector, Nilgiris district in March 2007. A lovely break from the nature-based tourist attractions, this one has magnificent wax statues of famous political leaders, prominent personalities and Indian Freedom Fighters. The most popular idols in the Wax Museum include Mahatma Gandhi, Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Schwarzenegger and American president Obama; and social figures which include Mother Teresa and A.
