Prince Charles as Abel, brother of Cain
Mansfield, Ohio is home to the state's only life-size wax museum. But it's not the typical kind of wax museum one might imagine. It's called BibleWalk, and it bills itself as the "Living Bible Museum." Since it opened in 1983, the museum has received approximately 40,000 visitors a year who come to experience its wax figures posed in dioramas illustrating the stories of the bible.
But visitors might get a sense of familiarity as they pass through BibleWalk, and it's not because they've previously read the bible. It's more likely because many of the over 300 figures in the museum are castoffs from other wax museums and were originally made to resemble celebrities and other public figures. Visitors to BibleWalk can find Tom Cruise dressed and posed as Jesus and Elizabeth Taylor, John Travolta, Steve McQueen and other celebrities as various biblical figures.
