Kolkata, Dec 30 IANS | 12 months ago

Kolkata will soon have a wax museum of its own on lines of the world famous Madame Tussauds, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said here Monday.


The wax museum would come up opposite Prakriti Tirtha - the Eco-Tourism Park at Rajarhat in the city's north eastern outskirts - which was opened to the visitors January this year.

"Inspired by the Madame Tussauds, the world famous exponent of Wax Museum of London, we are creating our museum to allow photo opportunity to the visitors with famous personalities," said Banerjee.

The chief minister Dec 27 had inaugurated a butterfly park, a floating musical fountain and a unique mask garden which has masks from different countries and states at the Prakriti Tirtha.
