Marylebone Road, London

Madame Tussauds is a museum for life-size wax replicas of famous celebrities & historic icons in themed galleries. It was founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud. By 1835, Marie had settled down in Baker Street, London and opened a museum. Marie Tussaud made her first waxwork of Francois Voltaire aged 16 At first a part of the exhibition included victims of the French Revolution and newly created figures of murderers and other criminals.Some sculptures still exist that were done by Marie Tussaud herself. For example The Incredible Hulk, At 4.5 meters high, is the largest ever figure made by Madame Tussauds. The smallest figure Madame Tussauds has ever made is Tinker Bell. Today's wax figures at Tussauds include historical and royal figures, film stars, sports stars, and famous murderers. It is a major tourist attraction in London. The museum has more than 300 stunning wax figures. The characters change rapidly and the Museum always refreshes the exhibitions.You can see Madame Tussaud in her own museum; she did her own portrait in wax just 8 years before she died at the age of 89.

    The visit for this place for sure worth every pound, it is a very nice place, I visited with my wife but you can bring kids here also, for booking it is better done online rather than waiting the long cue to enter. If you would like to see everything you should plan for a 6 hours or more. It is divided into divisions you see wax statues of politicians in one area famous actors in another. The most iconic is the royal family where you can take a photo even your friends could think it is truly them. If you are in London do not miss visiting this place.

    We enjoyed it but much prefer the Blackpool one. It was ridiculously busy, you couldn't get near any of the attractions really when you first get in, wasn't a chance to get near the royal wedding one's. Was better as we got further through though, John on the Sherlock Holmes experience was fabulous and the kids loved the 4d, it's not laid out well to queue tho

    We paid £49 each for the so called VIP experience. So not worth it. The Sherlock Holmes re-enactment which cost £5 (included in the VIP costs), was ridiculous - just another way of filching an extra fiver from Joe and Jill Public. The VIP experience included free popcorn - normally at £3. We worked out that we actually paid more had we purchased basic tickets - just for free popcorn and fast track entrance for a queue which did not exist. Further, the waxworks were limited due to the Alien and SH 'experiences'. Don't bother with the so called Sherlock Holmes experience - save your fiver. Both toilets upon entry were disgraceful - no regular cleaning. Horrible.

    Excellent day out. Children really enjoyed it. Again as in so many places in London disabled access was difficult due to lifts being out of order. The lovely security lady outside, Nicola, was amazing. Helping us get In, helping with tickets etc. All in all a great day

    Very cool museum! As one of the most popular London attractions, it is extremely crowded, so when planning your visit make sure to have plenty of time. The best thing is that you are allowed to take pictures and interact with the exhibits. There are several halls representing different aspects of fame - music, film, sports, royalty, etc. In the end you are offered a ride following different stages of London's history, and afterwards - you get to experience a movie (which I personally missed due to limited time in the museum). Nice souvenir shop, opportunity to buy pictures from your visit.

    Very tourist friendly. Well located at London's heart. Well organized. The time-train and the 4K movie are great attractions. Churchill should have been placed in a more respectful location - he's not a rock start, he's one of the greatest world leaders who have ever leaved(who I admire so much). When I visited this Museum 30 years ago, there was a floor dedicated for the "bad guys" (such as Hitler). It's a pity it doesn't exist any more. Overall, I enjoyed it with my family very much. Please make your booking ahead to avoid the queue.

    Famous people through out the world are seen as wax statues.. Size is matching with real life . Most of the statues are real.. we can take photo with any of the models. Apart from that thriller show is there and finally they take us to toy train ride explaining the history of london. Simply superb. Merlin pass includes this attraction too.. better to go early as 9 am to avoid long ques..

    Our daughter really wanted to go to Madame Tussauds so I bought online tickets to avoid the additional queue. It is a short walk from the Baker Underground Station which is very nice!! Lots of famous, high quality wax figures to see but there isn’t any organization to gain access which creates a very chaotic atmosphere. People can be very rude as they push around for pictures. Just know that you need to take patience when you go!! This is also the original location which makes it more special.

    BUY YOUR TICKETS AHEAD OF TIME. This one of the top tourist traps in London so 100% skip if you have fewer than 5 days in town. We were there during off season and bypassed (still) hundreds of people in line by buying our tickets ahead of time. Keep in mind that even though we walked straight in, it was still crowded... Think crowded as in lose your party immediately unless you are physically connected. After all that I will say Madame Tussauds is great entertainment (just not an essential London experience)! The characters seem so real and they have a spread of pop culture, entertainment, athletes, and of course the Royals. Meghan hadn't made it yet in April (probably since it was pre wedding), but I'm sure she's more than likely there now. Lots of interactive experiences to enjoy and everything is family friendly. I absolutely hated the ride at the end. The music and characters talking all rush together until it just noise. Nothing is distinguishable and the ride is nothing to enjoy, which is a shame since it's a tribute to London. Lastly, although there is an elevator, I would say this location has a ways to go before it is handicap friendly. Steps are frequent within rooms and many figures are on raised platforms (that have room for you to stand beside them if you are able).

    Really good attraction if you're visiting London, and worth the money if you use the 2 for 1/half price offers that are so abundantly available given it can take a few hours to enjoy and get round. However, I did have a couple of things to say. Feel sorry for the staff who were exceptionally helpful on our visit yet seemed overworked, and it is a bit chaotic outside with all the different doors and which one to go to for tickets etc. Also some of the rooms inside are frustrating when it's so busy as everyone walks in the way and getting pictures can be difficult especially with a group. People can be so rude too although that isn't the venues fault! All in all a good place which is worth a visit, once you actually get in and it's hopefully not too busy...they just need to get rid of the Trump/Boris/May waxworks as them people are evil!
