Wax Museum in Seoul- "Really Amazing...!"

63 Building-One of the tallest sky scrapers and major landmarks in Seoul, South Korea of 249m height is located on Yeouido island facing the methodical flow of beautiful River Hans. It has been offering variety of  wonderful things to visitors from all over the world since 1985 when it was completed and stood as a symbol of infrastructure boom in Korea. We got down at 'Saetgang' subway station in Line No.9 and came out through Exit-3 as the building is at just a ten  minutes of walkable distance from the station.

A day in the early autumn of Seoul is always incomparable. That day too a typical one which entirely offered a fascinated colorful ambiance and fragrances to enjoy and cherish the moments all along the way to the building.

On the route to 63-Building  we were attracted by the beauty of Sister Park or Ankara Park which welcomes the visitors with its diversified vivid trees, flowers and plants. This park was opened in 1977 in commemorating sister relationship between Korea and Turkey which the later stood and provided army support to South Korea during the 'Korean War'. There, one can also lost to the elegant and much artistically constructed traditional 'Turkey Vineyard House' in the park. It is stated that the house is decorated by various folk articles of Turkey inside.

From Sister Park, after just a few minutes of stroll we were in front of neck breaking tall 63-Tower which stands as if it tears and pierces the Sky. The inside world of this building with its enormous enthusiasms and jubilant & vibrant visitors is entirely different from what one sees outside which is very quiet and least crowded. The building  presents wide range of attractions and entertainments like Wax Museum, Sea World, Sky Deck- Golden Tower observatory, Korea's Largest I-Max theater, as well as various specialty restaurants serving Chinese, Japanese, Korean dishes on many floors. As it's name this tall building has 63 stories/ floors out of which 60 floors are above ground and 3 floors are underground. The observatory deck is located at the top of this building at 60th floor.

63-Wax Museum hall has its elegant beauty with  it's spectacular glowing lights and ambiance inside. This not only holds the pride of having the wax figures of world's Greatest Leaders, Scientists, Painters, Musicians, Artists, Celebrities, famous Hollywood Characters and  Sport stars but also showcases larger portraits of greatest personalities which the world produced till. The waxes are depicted graciously that resembles as if you are standing besides those greatest personalities of the world who once ruled the world by their special, noble attributes and principles. As many as 70 wax sculptures including Mahatma Gandhi, Mao, Che, Einstein, Edison, Picasso, Van Gogh, Beethoven, MJ, Elvis Presley, Madamme Tussaud, Beckham, Tiger Woods etc., adore the Museum hall to enchant the visitors.

The 'Chamber of Horror' displays the figures of monstrous, horrifying Dracula, Wolf-man, Frankeinstein  etc. The master piece among all wax figures according to me and the visitors from all across the world is "The last Supper" which was made in a grand manner and so natural as if that Supper is going on in front of us. This Musuem hall would provide an exciting and delightful experience which will never fall out of one's memory. One would love & yearn to revisit again immediately at the exit itself as i wished while moving out of the hall. Later at my residence while I was rushing the images which I shot inside museum, the wax figures which I stood besides them amazed me literally as they looked like live characters.

63-Sea World  is an aquarium in this Building which stands as a large one in Seoul and stated as visited by 1,000,000 tourists from all over the world every year. It exhibits a number of species and submarine organisms . The height of all attractions in sea world is 'Cute Penguins', 'Seal show' and 'Female divers show'. It's a must visited zone especially for children to explore the rare and various Sea Species.

As like the observatory in 'Nam Seoul Tower' which reveals the panoramic view of entire Seoul City, the observatory '63-Sky Deck' located at top most floor of this building also provides the beautiful view of entire city from the banks of 'River Hans'.
