Although today there are many branches of Madame Tussauds worldwide, the first site opened over 200 years in London, with its popularity only increasing over time. Madame Tussauds is actually name after Madame Marie Tussaud who brought her wax exhibition to the British Isles from France in 1802. As a direct result of the tremendous success, multiple locations have been opened worldwide.
The variety of wax figures displayed in extremely realistic ways is what piques the curiosity of people worldwide. The Museum is divided into various categories. Visitors can enjoy their favorite topic all together. There is a Party Section, Bollywood section, Fashion Week, Sports, culture, music, World Leaders. My personal favorite was the World Leaders. You almost feel as if you are really getting to see the famous people because they look so realistic. There are also many photo opportunities where visitors can pose with the Queen of England or the President of the U.S. and get their photo taken. The photos are then available for purchase.
It is fascinating to see the Behind the Scenes section where there is detailed explanations and visual samples of how and what it takes for the wax figures to be created.
The 4D experience is an exciting 3D movie while the Sherlock Holmes Experience live walkthrough adventure tests your abilities to solve a mystery and find Sherlock Holmes. The Spirit of London Ride is relaxing and informative. Learn about London’s history while riding in a London Taxi. Don’t get too frightened, the scenes are not real, although it definitely has a genuine feel to it.
Be careful don’t stand too still when visiting, someone may pinch you to see if you are real.
