Curiosities, Questions, & Cocktails at The House of Wax

Walk through an exhibition of Victorian wax figures and anatomical models, led by curator Ryan Matthew Cohn, with a drink in hand.

The House of Wax opens their doors early for a private showing of their peculiar collection. Set inside the Alamo Drafthouse, the unusual cocktail bar is also the home to more than 100 anatomical models.

Curator Ryan Matthew Cohn, who salvaged the collection from a 19th-century wax museum, will showcase highlights of the collection - from death masks of celebrities and murderers to Anatomical Venuses as well as assorted curiosities.

After your tour, Ryan will entertain questions from guests and the mixologists will serve up their speciality concoctions.

One cocktail is included in the price of your ticket: your choice of a Moscow mule or an Old Fashioned.
