Red Carpet Wax Museum and Red Carpet 2 are fun additions to i-City's growing list of tourist attractions.
Red Carpet is described as the 'first all-star interactive wax museum' in Malaysia.
Here is my review.
The wax museum is housed in a bright red building next to the multi-storey carpark.
Mr. Bean is one of the first wax models you will see, greeting guests as they proceed upstairs.
The exhibits are arranged in various themed zones comprising world leaders, historical, political and business icons, Asian and Western movie stars, martial artists, pop stars, sports stars and others. Some are more realistic than others.
If you have ever been to a Madame Tussauds museum you will know what to expect though the range and quality of the exhibits at Red Carpet may not be high as at Madame Tussauds.
Not sure why it is called 'interactive' because the waxworks do not move. But there are spare seats and props next to the exhibits so that visitors can blend into the scene when taking a 'selfie'.
Here are some of the famous celebrities you can find on display here:
Presidents Obama and Putin, The Queen, William and Kate, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Napoleon, Kofi Annan, Mao Zedong, Yasser Arafat, Bill Gates, Einstein, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee, Michelle Yeoh, John Travolta, Audrey Hepburn, Tiger Woods, Messi, the Beckhams and many more.
Enjoyable if you are a fan of wax museums or a lover of celebrities.
Not cheap, especially for foreign visitors (but prices reduced since my visit).
Personally I prefer the Trick Art Museum located next door.
Since my visit, the wax museum has been expanded by opening Red Carpet 2 where visitors can pose alongside their favourite film stars, action heroes, K-pop stars, royals and other celebrities.
Open Monday to Friday from 2pm to 10pm
Sat/Sun/Public Holiday/School Holiday 10am - 10pm.
