Red Carpet Wax Museum, i-City Shah Alam

Red Carpet@i-City, Shah Alam is the first wax museum in Malaysia and is modelled after an ‘Oscar awards’ setting, just like the one in Madame Tussauds all around the world. My first visit was a year ago when they first opened (the entry was >RM100!), and they have added a couple of new exhibits this time around. The price is much more reasonable now at only RM30 per ticket.

Anyway, I highly recommend coming on a weekday afternoon, because you’ll have the whole place to yourself.


The place is not hard to locate within I-City; it’s the fire-engine red building with lots of colourful, flashy stars. Once you enter, famous actresses dressed in cheongsam-dresses greet visitors. These are mechatronic and will bow periodically to ‘welcome’ visitors.


The place is divided into small themed sections. On the landing going up, there is a Monkey King figure (featuring HK action star Donnie Yen in his latest fantasy flick), and Marilyn Monroe who is only recognisable by her dress. Once you enter the actual exhibition area, the first section is dedicated to political leaders from all over the world.


On a podium is Obama(left), next to Russian president Vladimir Putin. Some other notable figures include Mao Zedong, Yasser Arafat, Kofi Annan, the ex-Pope, and our very own Tunku Abdul Rahman(center).


Some of the wax detailing seems to be fading a little, coz the ‘skin’ looked patchy in places, but otherwise the hands were realistic with curves, grooves and tiny indentations in them.


The late Steve Jobs and (right) a young looking Bill Gates.


Movie stars. Not just from Hollywood but from Asia as well like Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau (far left).


Sport personalities.


A rather random alien.


And just before leaving, the Governator.

Verdict: At RM35, the price is pretty affordable and there are ample wax figures to take pix with. If you’re a foreigner, it’s gonna cost you triple though, at RM100 per ticket.
