Located at Da Nang’s Ba Na Hills Resort, the first-ever Wax Museum in Viet Nam has become very popular with local residents, and domestic and foreign visitors. 

The museum, created in an ancient French architectural style, has 10 different display areas which feature about 50 wax replicas of world-renowned politicians, athletes and movie stars.  They include the US President Barack Obama, the Russian President Vladimir Putin, the former South African President Nelson Mandela, the late martial artist Bruce Lee, the Chinese martial artist Jet Li, soccer stars David Beckham and Lionel Messi, movie stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and the late singer Michael Jackson.  The real-size replicas are made of a mixture of beeswax and plastic.

Visitors to the museum will have an opportunity to take photos of the wax figures of their idols, and learn about how waxworks are made, at a factory in the museum.  In addition, there is an area for visitors to make their own waxworks.
