If you’re passing through London, make sure to visit Madame Tussauds! Rightly world-famous, this collection of wax figures is about as interactive as a museum can be, and is consistently voted one of London’s top visitor attractions.
Established in 1836 by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud, this collection of extraordinarily life-like wax figures boasts some of the most famous faces in the worlds of film, music, sport, fashion, culture, world leaders – and just about anything you could think of! Constantly updating its collection, recent additions range from popular royals Harry and Meghan to leading YouTube vloggers; and, in celebration of the recent Marvel film starring Brie Larson, a new Captain Marvel figure will be revealed this Easter.
Madame Tussauds is far from a passive experience: sing with the stars, receive dance coaching in the interactive dance zone, or play alongside your favourite sportsmen. There are ticketed experiences, too: jump into the immersive Star Wars journey, created in close collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm; brave the Sherlock Holmes experience – an innovative, theatrical, live, walkthrough adventure; or watch the 4D Marvel movie – created by world leader’s in CGI and 4D experiences, and in association with Marvel – in the 360-degree, 70m dome.
Take time to explore behind the scenes, too, seeing famous wax sculptures by founder Marie Tussaud of the French Royal family, and her final work – a life-size self-portrait; and discover how the figures are made, using techniques not dissimilar to those of Marie herself.
Whether you’re visiting for the first or hundred-and-first time, you’ll find plenty that’s new to enjoy! Located only three tube stops away, the Indigo Paddington provides an excellent base for your visit.
