'World's worst waxwork museum' to closeRex


Louis Tussauds House of Wax, a museum in Great Yarmouth which has been labelled the worst waxworks museum in the world, is facing closure after more than 50 years in business.

The Norfolk museum has gained cult status in recent years because so many of the models look nothing like the people they are supposed to be.

Thousands of visitors still flock to the seaside attraction so that they can have a good laugh for the meagre fee of £5.

Owners June and Peter Hayes, who are both now in their eighties, are ready to retire but have not found anyone to take it over.

Most of the models date back to the 1970s and 80s, and include an unflattering Princess Diana and an unrecognisable George Best. See our gallery below to see how many of the figures you recognise.
