Red Carpet Wax Museum is a fun addition to i-City's growing list of tourist attractions.
It is described as the 'first all-star interactive wax museum' in Malaysia.
I took my family there recently and 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.
Here is Nick Terra Scout's fine video of Red Carpet, featuring some of the museum's famous personalities together with their inspirational words.
Enjoyable if you are a fan of wax museums or a lover of celebrities.
Not cheap, especially for foreign visitors (prices reduced since my visit).
Personally I prefer the Trick Art Museum located next door.
Open daily from 10am to Midnight (until 1 am at Weekends and Public/School Holidays).
You need to purchase a reloadable i-Card for cashless access to all the attractions at i-City. The cards cost RM 100 for 100 points.
After some criticism that the museum was too expensive, prices have been reduced.
For MyKad holders the price is now:
Adult 35 points
Child 30 points
Adult 50 points
Child 35 points

Too much to see at i-City in one day? There is a budget hotel there with family rooms. Take a look at Agoda's website for room rates and availablity for this hotel and others nearby.
