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.

Fantastic experience. A must visit attraction when you are in London. Wax figures look very real. Visited on Sunday afternoon and it was not very crowded at that time. They have figures of famous celebrities , Royal family, star wars and marvels. Spend a good 2 hours inside the museum. There was a good ride inside which was also fabulous. Try to buy tickets in advance that will avoid any hassle there.

One place you just have to visit in London in your lifetime even if just once. You will enjoy the one or two hours of taking pictures with excellent wax figures of celebrities. There is also a short excellent Marvel 4D animation towards the end of the exhibition (though I suspect the 4d movies get updated from time to time so may not necessarily be the same in a few years).

First visit to MT’s London! Private event for Google. Food was great…. event staff was super friendly and accommodating. Drinks were mixed well and fantastic. The entry ride was far cooler than we expected!

Absolutely magnificent and must-see attraction in London. There are a lot of things to see and great figures of celebrities from worlds of music, sport, art, politics, history. The short 3D Marvel movie with special effects is also very interesting and the part that we loved the most was the ride by train through the history of London. That is a truly great experience!It's interesting both for adults and kids.

It was very busy with quite a long queue, but the queue went down quickly, so I waited around 20 mins to get in. It's quite pricey at around £30 for children, £35 for adults. I prebooked. Bags are checked by security. The wax works are good, but there were lots of crowds around the most famous, lots of photo opportunities. You can buy wax work hands, etc, and you have your photo taken, but you will need to pay. The chamber of horrors was spooky, and the spirit of London was great. You take a taxi ride around as part of the journey, which is properly the highlight of the adventure. At the end, there is the Marvel characters section, and this is great if you are a Marvel fan. You can watch a 4D Marvel film in a cinema setting which is in the former planetarium. This was good. There are lots of places inside to get food, snacks etc. Toilets and fire exits are available freely. This is a good tourist attraction but can get a little repetitive.
