Madame Tussauds is a world-famous wax museum featuring identical replicas of over 300 famous people, from Hollywood celebrities to world leaders.
Marie Tussaud, was taught the art of wax making by Dr Philippe Curtius and inherited his wax exhibition after the French Revolution in 1794. From there Marie decided to take her exhibition, which included graphic sculptures from the War on tour with her. She made her exhibition a permanent feature in the museum’s first ever location at The Baker Street Bazaar. Since then her children and grandchildren have carried on the wax exhibition creating it into what it is famous for today.
The museum is now located on Marylebone Road which is just a two-minute walk from Baker Street tube station. Tickets are available at the gate or online.
