Although it's definitely a bit spooky, this museum with over a thousand wax figures makes a good stop for families, as well as those interested in history, literature, and the offbeat. The dimly lit rooms hold wax figures of the czars; famed personages such as Dostoyevsky; and modern politicians, including Vladimir Putin and prime minister Dmitry Medvedev. Among the non-Russians are bearded ancient philosophers, Moses and other Biblical figures posed in scenes from famous paintings, and human oddities such as Edward Mordrake, the 19th-century Englishman who was born with an extra face on the back of his head. Note that the museum is cash only.
