A visit to this world famous wax museum is a must for many visitors to London.
 
It is now one of London’s major tourist attractions. The lifelike wax models are accurate in every detail and dressed in the real person’s own clothes and accessories. Mingle with the stars in ‘the hottest celebrity venue in town’.

There are models of Celebrities, Sports stars, Historical figures, Royalty, Cultural icons, World leaders and many others. The best thing is that you can touch the models and photograph yourself posing with them.
 
The attractions are constantly being brought up to date to make them relevant to today’s visitors. As well as joining the characters from Star Wars, you can get into a London black cab for a Spirit of London Ride, interact with Marvel Super Heroes in the 4D Movie Experience or Go Behind the Scenes to see how the realistic models are made.
 
A visit will last 1.5 to 2 hours.
 
Chamber of Horrors & SCREAM!
The popular Chamber of Horrors is now said to be a ‘dark experience with sudden loud effects and strobe lighting’. It incorporates wax models supplemented with live actors. Not suitable for children under 12 years of age, pregnant women or visitors with heart conditions.
 
Background
image
Madame Tussaud learnt her wax modelling craft in France just prior to and during the French Revolution, making death masks. In 1835, after many years as a travelling exhibition in rural England, Madame Tussaud brought her wax figures to a new museum in the Baker Street area of London.
The wax museum has since grown to become one of London’s major tourist attractions.
 
Madam Tussauds likes to play tricks and part of the fun for the visitor is finding themselves asking a 'waxwork assistant' for directions!
