No one can argue that wax models are fun. Who wouldn’t like a selfie with the life-like Queen Beyoncé or ex-President Barack Obama? But there’s one wax museum that beats its own purpose—the waxworks are such a far cry from the truth, you may need a second (and a third) guess.

Louis Tussaud's House of Wax in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk has achieved cult status with tourists flocking from all over the world to see the infamous monstrosities. From Victoria Beckham looking like a full-blown Karen waiting to see a manager, to Prince Charles ready to hit a drag lip-sync battle, the misshapen models give a whole new perspective on what the waxwork could be. It could be anything. So let's have a look at some of the worst works down below.

The owners, Jane and Peter Hayes, closed the attraction in October 2012 after running it for half a century. The pieces were sold to a secret Czech collector who surely has unique taste. Jane, 83, told Mirror that “all the models and machines and frames were sold in one go.” But the woman doesn’t know who the chap was.

Peter, who ran the museum for 57 years, admitted in 2008 that the models became so old they were no longer lifelike. According to Dailymail, each figure cost around $1,245 to make. The auction estimated that the whole collection was worth up to $14,943, but it’s not clear for how much it was sold to the buyer.

Named after the great-grandson of Madame Tussaud, the museum was located on Regent Road. According to the BBC, it employed three full-time staff members in addition to the Hayeses. People on Trip Advisor expressed their disappointment with the museum’s closure. “It will be sorely missed,” said one user. The other one called it a “sad loss” and said that “Yarmouth will never be the same...”
