Madame Tussauds London, London

3.7
#6 of 218 in Museums in London
Marvel at lifelike wax figures of the world's most famous actors and actresses, athletes, entertainers, and politicians at Madame Tussauds London. This is the original site of the museum that's become a franchise in nine other cities around the globe. Wax sculptor Marie Tussaud established the museum in 1884, and today it houses over 300 figures. The figures on display change frequently to keep up with the times, but you can expect to find sculptures of famous people from both the past and present. After viewing the exhibits, sit for a 4-D movie on a 360-degree screen, and then enter the Scream! house of horrors. Purchase your tickets online before you visit to reduce both the price of admission and your wait to enter.

  • Came with my 3 sons, one of which in a wheelchair. The disabled care is excellent and we were escorted to all levels via lift. Had a great time posing with the celebs. Didn’t think the alien attractio...  more »
  • Tickets purchased before traveling over the internet. Easily accessible by the Metro. Depending on the selected row can be busy schedules. Went to 16:00 we did not even 10 minutes. The statues are made very well and have fun taking pictures compensates for the expense. The rooms are divided according to the subject--movies, sports, music, etc. Nice view of Star Wars.

  • We came straight to opening hours and came quickly into-but there was too filled with customers already. The only thing that pulled up was 4 d film which was really well made. It's not a place we need to visit again.

  • The attraction itself is great and wax figures are amazingly lifelike. They should provide some important information prior to people buying tickets, such as the fact that you can't take pushchairs inside!...........Had I known this prior to paying for tickets online I might have thought twice about going there carrying a baby and all her stuff for over two hours! Another thing I noticed is that the Asian celebrities including actors and cricketers do not really resemble the actual person, whereas the Western celebs are exactly like the real person. Check the photos for comparison.
  • Very nice wax museum along with couple of shows such as Marvel heroes 5D and a taxi ride to the history. Lots of Indian stars are present as wax statue. It takes about half a day to see everything. If you are having cluster ticked with other London attraction you have to visit Tussauds first. Long on their website to get more info
  • Great place to visit. Some of the attractions were not functioning, too crowded to take a photo. Non "fast track" visitors had to wait a long time (fast track took 15 minutes to see the first item). Overall. Good
  • A great place to go if you want to see lots of wax figures and get your pictures with them. The building is huge and has lots of exhibits inside. There is even a little ride (railway type thing) and a cinema (marvel). There were lots of crowds to get in and once you were in so I would say early in the day is probably the best time to go to view it fully.
  • It was really busy but really worth the wait! It's basically like a theme park waiting. It was a great experience and it looked so real! I would very recommend for someone to come here if you want to be amazed.
