Storytelling at National Wax Museum, Dublin
5 Aug 2014

Dublin is home to The National Wax Museum Plus, which is offering a summer holidays storytelling treat at the moment.

Between 12pm and 4pm at weekend this month, storytellers are treating visitors to Irish legends and myths in the attraction's Mythology Time Vaults.

The Wax Factor Studio has also been given a music festival feel.

Here, people have the chance to try out a fun recording studio game and use green-screen tech to make a pop video.

Among the waxworks on show at the museum are Liam Neeson, U2 and Harry Potter!

Over in the UK capital, London, Madame Tussauds offers a great waxwork museum experience.

The attraction recently put a Ryan Gosling waxwork on display, based on the star of films like The Ides of March and Drive.

He's not going to be at the museum all that long, though, as when the summer ends the upcoming Madame Tussauds Orlando attraction, due to open next year, will be getting the Gosling sculpture.

Gosling is being displayed in the Madame Tussauds Party Area in London - with Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio among the other sculptures in this section.

"We’re delighted that actor, director and international heartthrob Ryan Gosling is paying us a visit for the summer holidays," Madame Tussauds London marketing manager, Matthew Clarkson, has said.

There are Madame Tussauds attractions all over the world: New York and Hollywood venues are just two of those that can be seen in the States, while in Europe there are museums in the likes of Berlin, Germany and Prague in the Czech Republic.

Australia and Asia also have branches. There's one in Sydney, as well as examples in Asian cities like Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Other attractions in Dublin besides the National Wax Museum, include The James Joyce Centre - great for those looking for an activity linked to the author of Ulysses and Dubliners.ADNFCR-408-ID-801740123-ADNFCR
