Often known as one of the most popular tourist attractions in London, Madame Tussauds is visited by millions of people every year, and has attracted nearly half a million tourists since its first opening. Madame Tussauds London is, in fact, one of one of the many wax museums situated in several cities around the world.It is one of a chain of institutions named after the founder of the first such museum that was opened in London in the early 19th century. It is especially famous for some of the most life-like replicas of celebrities from all over the globe. The museum has over 400 wax figures of some of the most famous people in the world, including musicians, actors, politicians, historical figures, scientists, geniuses, religious heads, and even criminals.Madame Tussauds was founded by the famous wax sculpture called Marie Tussaud, who is also the founder of the chain. She was born in the city of Strasbourg in France in the year 1761. While she was alive, Tussaud became quite famous and made quite a name for herself, because of her unparalleled ability to be able to sculpt real-looking and almost life-like figures of some of the most famous people of the time, like Sir Walter Scott, Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson, etc.The museum in London first opened in 1835, and it was located on Baker Street at the time. It was then moved to its current location in 1894, which is Marylebone Road. The figures in the museum are divided into various categories, which include Hollywood division, the Royal Family division, a section consisting of political and religious leaders, and one dedicated to comic book heroes, among many others.However, the museum is not just a place for seeing wax figures. It also offers many other entertainment options like taxi rides in some of the most historically significant regions of London, a small movie experience featuring 4D figurines of Marvel Superheroes, as well as a bar where adults can get alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.
