On planets populated by wax-based life forms, wax museums are simply called "museums" and candle possession is punishable by death. Ogle otherworldly wax beings with today's Groupon: for $7, you get admission for two to the Niagara Wax Museum of History in Niagara Falls (a $14 value).
The Niagara Wax Museum of History has molded 46 exhibits depicting the history of Niagara Falls and the famed individuals who helped to shape the area. More than 10,000 square feet of viewing space display the region's history, from the longhouses of the Tuscarora Indians to the 21st-century scientists who vowed to reverse the waterfall's flow. Life-size wax figurines and authentic artifacts depict notable historic figures such as Father Louis Hennepin, one of the first people to discover the falls in the 1600s, and Annie Taylor, the first person to survive a trip over the watery summit without the assistance of an antigravity ray. Glance into a recreation of an 1800s general store, or imagine diving over the falls in one of the many wooden barrels replicated in the museum's daredevil exhibit.
