Great Blacks in Wax Museum

Great Blacks in Wax Museum Review

Though not as convincing as the likenesses at a Madame Tussauds, the more than 100 wax figures on display here do a good job of recounting the triumphs and trials of Africans and African-Americans. The wax figures are accompanied by text and audio. Baltimoreans honored include Frederick Douglass, who as a youth lived and worked in Fells Point; singer Billie Holiday; and jazz composer Eubie Blake. To get here from Mount Vernon, take Charles north and turn left at North Avenue.
