A private collection of waxworks opened in a basement by George Rogers after his dismissal from Madame Tussaud's. In addition to the usual grizzly models popular at the time the museum also houses a curtained off alcove displaying an array of pieces too horrifying for the general public.
Some of them are actually bodies sealed in wax.
