The Wax Museum – Helwan

is a small public museum located in the suburb of Helwan, in Cairo, Egypt , close to the Ain Helwan Metrostation.

It contains exhibits of wax sculptures demonstrating important figures from Egyptian history and idealized traditional Egyptian culture. Some figures shown include Salah El-Din El-Ayoubi (Saladin), King Richard I “The Lionheart” of England, Amr Ibn Al-As, Cleopatra and President Gamal Abdel Nasser. The museum was founded by Hussein Bikar, a noted Egyptian painter and sculptor.

Due to the lack of air conditioning, many of the wax sculptures on display exhibit visible damage and signs of repeated touch-ups.

As of early 2009, the museum has been closed for renovations.
