Since opening its doors over 200 years ago, Madame Tussauds has welcomed millions of visitors thanks to their expert and life-like wax figures. After moving to London following the French Revolution, Madame Tussaud established a base in Baker Street, showcasing historical figures cast in wax as well as gruesome relics of the bloody French Revolution. After her death, Madame Tussauds’ attraction continued to grow as more wax figures were added as well as expanding with locations around the world. Now based in 24 cities around the world, Madame Tussauds London remains the original flagship.

Did You Know

  • Madame Tussaud learnt her trade from Dr. Philippe Curtius who made wax anatomy models
  • It takes approximately six months, more than 250 measurements and photographs as well as over 2000 lbs of wax to make each lifelike Madame Tussauds' figure
  • All figures are made 2% larger than the real person because the wax is expected to shrink throughout the moulding process
