Before it burned down in the late 80's (?), The American Heritage Wax Museum in Scottsdale, AZ contained the usual assortment of not so life-like Presidents, composers, authors, inventors, etc. Yes, wandering these dim halls one could view recreated scenes from keypoint moments in American history: like the horrific scalping of white settlers at the brutal hands of indians, The bloody Custer Massacre, Honest Abe getting his brain ventilated, and Lee Harvey Oswald filling up with lead. Jeezo! Which way to the more kid-friendly Gallery of Horrors / Torture Chamber?!!
