PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - The gym at Prestonsburg Elementary turned into a historical wax museum on Monday.

It was part of a big research project for all 5th graders.

More than 100 students dressed the part, and as the younger kids visited throughout the day and pushed the button at each station....they came to life, explaining their role in history.

5th grader, Marcus Tabor says, "It is like footsteps through history...leading up to things. What we are doing is like the time periods, I'm in the 1860's."

This was the first year for the wax museum history fair...both teachers and students say they hope to do it again.
