The growing collection of painstakingly created wax figures at Madame Tassauds newest location in Sydney bring to life individuals and celebrities from around the world. The full sized wax figures are lovingly created by talented and devoted artists using methods very similar to those used over 200 years ago.

A tremendous amount of time and effort goes into creating the beautifully detailed full size figures. As you explore the themed exhibits you will be taken on an exciting journey through history. The lifelike replicas of the rich and famous, heroes and villains, entertainers and celebrities, athletes, cartoon characters and more are not roped off, allowing you to get your picture taken with them with no barriers. New figures are added into the collection on a regular basis. Some of the famous individuals on display at the Sydney location include Barack Obama, Taylor Swift, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Oprah, to name a just a few.

Madame Tussauds has a rich history that dates back over 200 years. In 1770 Madame Tussaud acquired the skills to create amazing wax figures under the teaching and guidance of Dr. Philippe Curtius. When she turned 17, she became the art tutor to King Louis XVI's sister in the Palace Of Versaille in France. In the first part of the 19th century Madame Tussaud's exhibition moved about Britain displaying its unique collection of relics and wax replicas of famous people from around the world. This mobile exhibit conveyed the news of those times in a visual manner similar to what television does today.

Eventually, in 1835 Madame Tussauds wax exhibition settled in a permanent location in London. Today they have many locations throughout the world, including their latest at Sydney where they are conveniently located right between the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney on the vibrant Darling Harbour.

Nearby attractions: Darling Harbour, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, IMAX Theatre, WILD LIFE Sydney and the Australian National Maritime Museum.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating A great place to see the real looking personalities and favourite stars. Staff were a real help with taking photos in the Royal dress up photoshoot and it’s just amazing. The magazine photo was an added attraction. It appeared that many manikins were shorter than the real. Well maintained and organised place great job of the creators for making the whole experience enjoyable and a life time experience.

4 Star Rating A visit made memorable by some awesome staff. Travelling solo, I wandered into Madame’s not expecting to be so well entertained. Thank you to the lovely Jeannie who started off my kindly taking my pic with my idol Nelson Mandela. She then proceeded to accompany me throughout - taking my pics , offering tidbits of info on each of the statues while I entertained her with my lack of Aussie knowledge . Definitely came out having enjoyed the journey and learnt a few things along the way. Thank you. Suggest going early .

5 Star Rating A really fun place to come and see the stars. Staff were helpful especially with taking photos. The Royal dress up photoshoot was amazing. The magazine photo didn't work for me as I couldn't get online connection inside. Elle was a lot taller than I expected. The politicians were shorter than I expected. There was a jukebox to play your favourite songs. Well done to the creators for making the whole experience so enjoyable!👍🏻💯🤗

5 Star Rating One of the best experience we had today at Madame Tussauds. Since it was a weekend there was no rush and we had had seamless entry and exit. Detailing on all the statues were mind boggling. There was a gentleman from the team who helped clicking photos and directing us making sure we have good pics. unfortunately, I forgot to ask the name but please convey my thanks to him and all the staff members who have maintained this upto an international standard.

5 Star Rating I visited the Madam Tussads Museum with my 2 years old toddler. I thought I will just roam around and will have good time with my baby. I wasn’t planning to take of pictures of mine. But when I saw some statues of my favourite people I can’t stop myself. Unfortunately I was visiting alone and I had no one to click my pics. Ben, one of the team members helped me and took some wonderful pictures. He literally made my day. Thank you Ben for being so kind and generous. On top of it, you are a good photographer too. Love the experience!
