Madame Tussauds London
The famous waxworks museum, started by Madame Tussaud in 1835, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in London, and usually have queues to match. With their fast-track booking system, visitors can bypass the queues with a pre-booking a time slot for a small charge. Madame Tussaud learned her trade making death masks during the French Revolution, and those of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are displayed beside the actual blade that beheaded them. There are wax models of the famous and the infamous from every walk of life, some of which are amazingly life-like. The Spirit of London exhibit is where memorabilia from London's past are on display.
As I have had the opportunity to hear very expressly about Madame Tussaud's there is an intrigue that mystifies the museum following. Which is everybody, But!
I recently had a chance to visit the African-American History Museum in Philadelphia. The downstairs displayed were blocked by a historical file and questioinaire that compel men to sweat!
As I climbed to the upper levels, the populace became costly as a measure of upbringing in artforms. The picturing and displays was one that I didn't expect.
The whole gallery was very nice, but few articles had me stunned!
it was interesting at the items in it were great but it was extremely crowded which made it difficult to see all the wax works. the chamber was good but was quite short. the spirit of london ride was a nice excuse to sit down for a rest.
I would go to Madame tussauds for the Wax models which its famous for, but not for CHAMBER LIVE, an attraction in london, which is a waste of time , money and can cause grief like it did to me.
Chamber live is more like a time killer ,put there to make your visit seem longer. Its terribly conceived , and I'd a very unpleasant experience where the actor at the entrance jumped at me, brought his face 1/2 inches to mine, and wont let go as if he had a bad day and was taking it out on me. Then he refused to let me and wife go ahead saying I blew at his face. The supervisor was nice to try sort things out. However, I would never ever go to MT , london until they shutdown that CL and left it to the wax models only.
The way Madame Tussaud's makes all of those famous and infamous people come to life with just some wax is absolutely enthralling and spectacular. I mean, how could you not life it. I rubbed elbows with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Oprah Winfrey, Princess Diana, Mel Gibson, and many more!
Too many people let in at the same time, felt very claustrophobic and cramped. Viewing the waxworks was difficult without being pushed and shoved along. Surprised with the health and safety laws in this country that they are allowed to get away with the volume of people they allow in. We left having seen perhaps half of the exhibitions, waste of money as it is not cheap to get in!
This may be a fun trip for teenagers who are fans of the wax museum horror film genre... but with all of the other amazing things to do and see in London, why spend any time and money here?!
Admittedly, the wax artistry is impressive and the place does have a unique spooky feel. So if this is what you're looking for, by all means give it a go!
I was told this was a must see and was ever so dissapointed. Extremely expensive
London has amazing history, don't waste your time in this tourist trap!
Go to the Tower of London or Westminster Abbey or any of the castles!!!Changing of the guard, etc...
dont bother with this attraction
