#6 of 167 in Museums in London
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • If you've never been, you probably should see it. Once. Take a sedative first. But I will never, ever step foot on this London establishment again. The historical figures must be in storage, given way to endless celebrity images. King Henry VIII used to be surrounded by all five of his wives. I thought that was pretty interesting. The space in which they devote to Madame's interesting history is like the corridor of a small walk in closet. It's hot in some room; cold in others. God knows how you get out of this place in the even of a fire. No thank you. Forevermore. I'd give it no stars if I could.
  • Great variety of wax statues. Take a good camera, camera person and selfie stick along; you will enjoy the fantastic photos you can click there. There is a 10 min London history cab ride that is a must-do. 4D shows are free and definitely worth if you have kids along. Combine the visit with another attraction to save money; book online and print the ticket online. You will save a lot of time by doing this and you don't need the fast track entry then. If you are in a hurry, fast track entry is a good option.
  • Art at its best. Awesome wax creations of iconic personalities. Just need better directions as people tend to miss few areas. Crowd should be made to enter in batches as it is too crowded at times. I know there is a risk of loosing business but reputation is equally important.
  • Madame Tussauds Excellent place offering a great experience for any age. We came here together with some friends visiting us and everybody enjoyed the day at Madame Tussauds. The staff is as always nice and helpful and this is making things easier for everyone. We very much enjoyed the ride with the London Taxi whilst having a glimpse back in time into London’s history. Marvel Super Heroes 3D is also a great experience, we had a good fun and laugh, really enjoyed this. Photos taken all over the place are probably the main activity, everyone seems to enjoy having a photo taken with so many celebrities. Anyway, you are not left alone as if you want to have a professional photo with the royal family, a member of staff is there for you to make this happening. A great overall experience, I would recommend Madame Tussauds to anyone!
  • I will try to sum up my experience here - + The entrance makes you really feel welcome with the red carpets and all + Centrally located, connectivity + Short cab ride inside to take you down the memory lane + Free 4D shows - Long queues at the entrance - Super crowded inside. Long wait times as people queue up for taking pictures with their favourite character. You do not really get to see anything as most of the statues are thronged and surrounded by groups of people inside. Entry should be limited and in batches - Staff who throws up quite an attitude.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
