Madame Tussauds London, London

3.7
#6 of 231 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 visit for this place for sure worth every pound, it is a very nice place, I visited with my wife but you can bring kids here also, for booking it is better done online rather than waiting the long cue to enter. If you would like to see everything you should plan for a 6 hours or more. It is divided into divisions you see wax statues of politicians in one area famous actors in another. The most iconic is the royal family where you can take a photo even your friends could think it is truly them. If you are in London do not miss visiting this place.
  • Very tourist friendly. Well located at London's heart. Well organized. The time-train and the 4K movie are great attractions. Churchill should have been placed in a more respectful location - he's not a rock start, he's one of the greatest world leaders who have ever leaved(who I admire so much). When I visited this Museum 30 years ago, there was a floor dedicated for the "bad guys" (such as Hitler). It's a pity it doesn't exist any more. Overall, I enjoyed it with my family very much. Please make your booking ahead to avoid the queue.
  • We enjoyed it but much prefer the Blackpool one. It was ridiculously busy, you couldn't get near any of the attractions really when you first get in, wasn't a chance to get near the royal wedding one's. Was better as we got further through though, John on the Sherlock Holmes experience was fabulous and the kids loved the 4d, it's not laid out well to queue tho
  • Great place for a day out, i have visited here many times over the past 20 years, I like how they change things to keep it modern and up to date. Some amazing real looking wax works here, some real brilliant stuff. I enjoy the interaction throughout this place, plenty things to get involved in for all age groups, young and old.
  • You pay good money to get in only to find you have to pay again and again. Some areas require an additional fee, they take pictures which are very expensive. Many of the wax works look nothing like the famous people they are suppose to be. The 4D Cinema was the best part, the images were right at your face. We did enjoy the areas we were allowed to see.
