#6 of 254 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. Before you head to London, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly London road trip planner, to make sure you see all that London has to offer, including Madame Tussauds London.

  • I loved it my second visit. Kids loved the avengers area and the cinema. It was nice and cool inside plenty of pram space  more »
  • Arrived at Tussauds at 12:30pm. We have Merlin passes, so don’t pay to enter. Directed to a long queue marked gate 1. After queuing for over a hour we were then directed to a machine to print off a...  more »
  • Another must see place in London that will leave you with very good impression. It has so many wax figures, so I doubt your favourite star is missed out  more »

  • THE Madame Tussauds is absolutely worth everything that you might have heard about it. Not overrated at all, if you are a first time visitor. RECOMMENDED: Do not miss out the following sections - Musical legends, History of UK and Avengers amongst all. The entrance is lined up like a ballroom of sorts with a host of celebrity wax statues. As you go deeper into the building, there are various sections. The Avengers section is a special highlight along with a 3D movie in the section. The official store also boasts of some amazing collectibles.
  • A fabulous place to visit. You feel like going through a lot of history. Very interesting and fun way of learning for me. Ends with the modern day Actors and Pop Stars. It also has a Madame Tussauds shop to buy some memorabilia. Great day out. It could however have been a bit bigger though, as lesser attention has been given to modern day stars.
  • Fun day out where you can see some interesting wax works. Some are very realistic, others not so much. It's usually very packed and busy with a long wait to get in. Be sure to book tickets in advance to save time. There are usually offers online. Too busy and packed inside but there's usually a good opportunity to get pictures with most of the works. The 4D cinema is enjoyable enough and the indoor taxi train is okay.
  • Simply wonderful. All verity in one package. Enjoyed half day at this museum. All.statues are prepared perfectly from politicians to artists. Enjoyed photography shared with our beloved heeos. Story of England is shown very nicely in separate vehicle. Three D picture enjoyed nicely.
  • If you’re good for Long queue to see this entertaining wax museum, then please do so visit this place when you’re in London. You will see a lot of familiar faces from politics, athletes, celebrities and performers around the world. It should take you about 2hrs or more depending on how soon or long you want to check everything. We came here and really got a long queue since it’s Saturday in spite of the condition of weather outside. If I’m not mistaken you’ll pay about £65 only for this attraction and less with 1 more attraction to choose. We didn’t book online when we came here, so I suggest you book online and schedule when you want to visit this place along with other attraction perhaps lesser people. For me overall I’m happy as a kid. Worth to visit. I think you can bring your own food while on queue or else they have vending machine for some snacks. And buy meals inside the museum with some souvenirs.
