Civil War wax museum to auction off figures

Posted: Updated:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The National Civil War Wax Museum in Gettysburg will clean house this weekend when it auctions off many of its exhibits and life-sized figures.

The museum has hosted more than 8 million visitors since it opened in 1962. The sale of more than 300 items will allow it to go in a new direction.

Renovations are underway inside the complex, and when the work is finished the building will be called the Gettysburg Heritage Center.

The center will tell the story of Gettysburg before, during and after the three-day battle.

Officials said opening bids on some of the popular museum figures could start at $2,000 once Saturday's auction gets underway at 9 a.m.
