Madame Tussaud London


Founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud, the Madame Tussaud´s Wax Museum is a major tourist attraction located on Marylebone Street near central London, but it has other branches abroad featuring figures more accessible to those countries. The museum began working in 1835 and brought well-known figures from history and modern culture to life with stunningly-realistic wax figures. The figures feature known people in politics, entertainment, royalty and history in a gigantic museum grouped into numerous large, themed exhibits. From world leaders to famous actors, the various themed rooms have plenty of wax statues that leave visitors baffled.

The museum has something for everyone. For those interested in history, there are famous military leaders, kings, dictators and presidents. Displayed on the wall is the actual blade used to remove Marie Antoinette's head. For those who fancy a dose of horror, there is a Chamber of Horrors, where scenes from the French Revolution and the plague are depicted, as well as famous villains like Jack the Ripper are also showcased.

The music zone represents legends of pop, from Bob Maley through to current chart toppers Demi Lovato and Justin Timberlake. The museum’s visitors are encouraged to try out their own dance moves to see if they can win an award. Galleries of the Pirates of the Caribbean, World leaders, The Royal Family, the Culture zone and the History of London are all set up immaculately for those visiting the museum. There are interactive tasks such as entering the Big Brother diary room, umpiring an Andy Murray tennis match or taking a penalty alongside David Beckham. One can have their picture taken alongside A-list international celebrities like Orlando Bloom, Drew Barrymore, Nicole Kidman, Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney, too.
