  • While small, it was interesting to see and read about John Brown and his history here in the town. The wax figures were really cool.  more »
  • WOW! The amount of detail was absolutely amazing. There were many, many wax figures. The scenery and rooms they made up for the dioramas were very well done. Well worth the money.  more »

  • Harpers Ferry has a lot of small attractions. None are outstanding by themselves but together they are worthwhile.
  • Totally fun and kitsch! Plus, the museum provides an excellent overview of John Brown's life, raid, and demise.
