(Gettysburg) --- A shuttered Gettysburg museum that features wax figures of all 44 U.S. presidents and their First Ladies is getting ready to display the figures before they're auctioned off January 14.

The Hall of Presidents and First Ladies Museum closed in November after visitors dwindled. It had been in business for about 60 years.

The collection features life-sized figures of the presidents and one-third-scale figures of the first ladies in reproduction inaugural gowns, as well as other presidential memorabilia.

Previews of the wax figures will be held at the museum January 8th from noon to 5:00 p.m. and January 12 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
