Madame Tussauds

It’s the only place in the world where you can click a selfie with Barack Obama, the Queen, James Bond, the Pope and Tinkerbell, all in the same day! Welcome to Madame Tussauds - a wonder world that houses incredibly life-like wax sculptures of hundreds of celebrities from every walk of life as well as movie characters, historical figures, world leaders and royalty.

Legacy of Marie Tussaud

The museum was founded by Marie Tussaud, a wax sculptor par excellence from France. She moved to London after the Revolution where she continued to create wax figurines which were exhibited at Baker Street from 1835. Her grandsons moved the museum to its current location in 1884.

Famed Attraction

For all sci-fi fans, the Star Wars gallery is a must-visit. You can also get up close and personal with your favorites at the 4D Marvel Superheroes movie.

From Mandela to Einstein, Beatles to One Direction, Hollywood to Bollywood, Beckham to Bolt, Madame Tussauds has given a place of honor to all the greats. All you have to do is walk in and say hello. Better still, click a pic!
