Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London boasts a collection of wax figures that look so real you will have a difficult time believing they are not. The detail of these fascinating full size wax figures is amazing to say the least. Both fun and educational, Madame Tussauds world renowned wax museums will take you on a journey back in time and right up to the present as you walk among the life like figures of famous and powerful people, celebrities, athletes, and even fictional characters. New figures are added to the collection on a regular basis.

Madame Tussauds Wax Exhibitions have a long history going back more than 200 years. Back in 1770, a very young Madame Tussaud learnt the skill of creating wax figures from Dr. Philippe Curtius. By the age of 17 she was art tutor to the sister of King Louis XVI in the famous Palace Of Versaille in Paris. Early in the 19th century Madame Tussaud's exhibition travelled around Britain showcasing its unique collection of relics and wax likenesses of renowned public figures both good and bad. This travelling show brought the news of the day to life in a day and age when most news travelled simply by word of mouth.

Madame Tussauds established its first permanent location in London way back in 1835 and moved to its current location on Marylebone Road in 1884. Today they have many locations throughout the world.

A Marvel Super Heroes 4D movie is also part of the Madame Tussauds experience in London as is the chamber of horrors, although you may want to skip that portion if you have children along.

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum London Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating 🕯️ I've never been a fan of Madame Tussauds, except for visiting their wax museum here in London. I am really impressed and can say that every penny we spent here is really worth it. All the stars you know from Hollywood, film and television and celebrities in general from all over the world are set up here as wax figures. Even Marvel heroes are available as a 4D studio included in the price. There is also a taxi tour of England's history. They are fake taxis of course, see photos :) You can also buy merchandising items at the end of the tour (studios). and you should definitely allow yourself about 2 hours for the entire tour (some more, some less). Making our own wax hands was a big hit for us. When creating the wax hands, we were really impressed by Ahmed‘s artistic work. He's a genius and you definitely have to say that and praise him sometimes. 📣 If you liked my Google Maps reviews, I would be happy about a like here.

5 Star Rating Its was a great experience. We booked our tickets online a day before. It was slightly cheaper than to buy on site as we got little discount. We went there on weekdays so there wasn’t long queue to wait and no rush inside. Inside its too warm, could be because of the lights and no visible windows for fresh air. The wax statues are fun to watch and take pictures with them. We all enjoyed a lot.

5 Star Rating Took my children there for the half term , we loved every bit of it especially the taxi ride telling stories about the spirit of London as we travelled through something like a tunnel. Well recommended for anyone that wants to have a view of what real life celebrities look like😝

5 Star Rating Stunning and interesting Madame Tussauds wax museum. Here you can take pictures not only with famous personalities, but also with movie or cartoon characters, and also take a ride through a tunnel that tells about the history of England in colorful exhibitions of those times. We had a lot of fun, had a lot of fun and took a lot of photos. There is also a souvenir shop at the exit. We bought tickets online through booking, while we were walking to the museum, we stood in line for about 10-20 minutes to enter.

4 Star Rating Good place for a day out when it’s a rainy day in London. If you have Merlin pass you can enter the fast track entrance. Highly recommend booking ticket in advance otherwise you are looking at long Que to enter. We took lots of funny photos and highlight was the 4D Marvel experience. In total I was there for 90 minutes with my family.
