Madame Tussauds London

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.

    It was a busy Saturday afternoon. There were long queues out there. However, lot of famous people who have been inscribed. Nowadays the highlight has been recently wedded Royal couple Prince Harry and Princess Megan . And people were crazy to have their photos clicked. But I didn't think it worth the price they charge - which is somewhere around 20£. The only thing which I liked was a five minute 4 D movie. It was having nice effects. So overall an average place for people not interesting in getting photos clicked with wax statues. For others it would be great.

    Place was packed so much you couldn't get photos without someone in the background. We had fast passes which gets you past a line but everyone ends up in a big mosh pit together. They have made good use of space using clever techniques. However we left without a lot of photos due to crowded conditions and when looking back there wasn't a lot of wax works on display. Our expectations were a little higher.

    This is one of the world's most best Wax Museum..... I feel it very awesome experience with this place.... The statues of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum are really awesome and they look like living ones...... I am suggesting everyone of you this place because he's an unforgettable massive thrilling experience. If you got a chance to visit this place don't miss it.

    The train ride and the the 4D show earned it 5 stars. I loved the ride in the old taxis. And the wax dolls were all touchable. So you can take photos hugging them. The Shrek and the Star Wars were quite good and almost alive. The ice cream and the chocolate chip cookie were superb. Try the slush at the end. It is really tasty.

    Crowded almost all the time, queue extents to both sides of the building. But worth the wait as you can take selfies with celebrities (wax figures of course) and take amusement park like rides inside. There are separate paid attractions inside the premises which are not included in the regular ticket. For example, the Sherlock Holmes experience, which may be interesting to children but not so much to adults I believe. Star wars fan boys are in for a treat with cool displays and merchandise (this is the last attraction before you exit)

    Great place to visit. Most characters are quickly recognizable and had detailed features. But few were not, was difficult to identify with no names around some. Commendable hard work by all the artists. And its not just statues here. Kinda crowded but that's the buzz. Must visit for celeb fans

    Great!! Wax museum, they got statue of all the famous Celebrity, Sportsman, Leaders and many more. One has got to spare around two hours to see everything. This is one of the best attraction place for tourist in london. During summer it is very busy and one has to get in queue for entry. Staffs are very helpful. They also got 4D experience. One should book online ticket to save money and time. Best time would be in morning as it gets crowded afternoon.

    Great place to visit. Some of the attractions were not functioning, too crowded to take a photo. Non "fast track" visitors had to wait a long time (fast track took 15 minutes to see the first item). Overall. Good

    The attraction itself is great and wax figures are amazingly lifelike. They should provide some important information prior to people buying tickets, such as the fact that you can't take pushchairs inside!...........Had I known this prior to paying for tickets online I might have thought twice about going there carrying a baby and all her stuff for over two hours! Another thing I noticed is that the Asian celebrities including actors and cricketers do not really resemble the actual person, whereas the Western celebs are exactly like the real person. Check the photos for comparison.

    Excellent place to see your favorite movie, TV, and historical characters from the past and current. The museum displays their firgures in a way that allows people to have the most fun possible. Takes about an hour and a half to walk through the museum. It will also take about 30 minutes to stand in line during the winter season. We came earlier than our given time on accident and they still let us in.
