Madame Tussauds, London

Madame Tussaud's Gallery at London

It all began in 1835 when Madame Tussaud started experimenting with waxworks by making death masks during the French revolution. Some of Madame Tussaud's original waxworks like those of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are showcased - along with the actual blade which was used to behead them!

Apart from these, Madame Tussaud's has a huge repertoire of wax models of some of the most famous personalities from every walk of life. Needless to say, they are remarkably life like. A a recent addition to Madame Tussaud's, is an exclusive enclosure dedicated to the city of London wherein the evolution of London from its nascent stage to one of the world's most magnificent cosmopolitan cities is depicted in the most imaginative manner possible.

Madame Tussauds is the kind of place, which has great historic value and you have to visit the place at least once. It is a riveting place no doubt and the wax works are incredibly pretty. An exclusive women celebrity enclosure exists wherein some of the world's most powerful and charismatic women are showcased in one single room. From Britney Spears to Kylie Minogue, they are all there at Madame Tussaud's.

If you desire to have an impromptu photo session with no less a person then the Queen herself, it's possible only at Madame Tussaud's. Apart from this, in today's fast-paced life it's literally impossible to meet our political leaders face to face. However at Madame Tussauds, all our politicians seem to be in a relaxed mood and eager to meet us.

You probably heard a lot about Marlyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin. But isn't it time to pay your homage to some of the legends of the film world? Yes, they are all there at Madame Tussauds and it would be really nice of you to drop in and meet them in person! And, what can one say about the premier night? It is high-voltage entertainment and a cast, which is a virtual who's who from the silver screen, right from the Oscar winners to our current crop of actors and actresses.

The ultra modern auditorium at Madame Tussaud's, with its cutting edge digital technology, takes you on an astronomical journey to outer space. You can only marvel at the awesome sight of the Milky Way or for that matter the manner in which the robots from earth explore the possibility of life on Mars' barren and desolate tracts.

For some ghastly and horrific fun, you only need to drop in at the "chamber". Here, you will witness horrors of the highest magnitude. Each step you take at chamber will only take you to the depths of horror until you find that the assassins' laughter drowns your squeamish and faint-hearted shrieks. Indeed, the ambience inside the chamber is scary.

And once your experience at Madame Tussaud's comes to an end, a visit to the gift shop is a good idea for buying some souvenirs.
