The Russian Imperial Wax Museum is the largest exhibition of wax figures in Russia, headquartered in the National Museum
of Art and Culture of St. Petersburg, Russia. Since 1989 the company has organized
exhibits and museums, and currently supports over 30 exhibitions in Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union. We also cooperate with other organizers of exhibitions who regularly present our works. These partners include United Exhibits, of Copenhagen, Denmark, and Faber Art, of
Helsinki, Finland, in addition to exhibition partners in several Arab countries.
Our craftsmen have dedicated their careers
to preserving imperial Russias past through the creation of likenesses. With
our business their canvas has expanded to internationally recognized people. We
also possesses exclusive patented technology for creating figures which results in incredibly lifelike creations, and work
with the best sculpturors in Russia. We use a specially patented wax for making figures, created by the Russian engineers-chemists
with the support of a government program of applied chemistry, specifically for the Russian Imperial Wax Museum. It is very different from wax mixtures used by our competitors.
Most use mixtures containing mainly plastic which makes their figures lack lifelike qualities. Our figures
contain many layers of different colors and compounds; our wax mixture makes the color of our figures look realistic,
including the fact that the light goes into the depth of our wax and reflects from it just like the skin of human being does.
As for the plastic wax mixtures, the light reflects only from the surface of the figure and it is harder to make the figure
look real even with the usage of a lot of specially created cosmetics.
