Madame Tussaud's London 2015

One family that visited recently came back with this review...

'Founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud, this wax museum has become a major tourist attraction displaying world famous people and historical personalities from different walks of life.

Madame Tussauds defined fame by saying that "No one can be considered popular unless admitted into the company of Madame Tussauds' celebrities in Baker Street."

Our family loved the entire experience. Our 11-year old grandson was delighted to have his photo taken with "the Royal family, President Obama, Yoda and Chewbacca" while our seven-year old was delighted with "Shrek, Usain Bolt and Salman Khan." I was surprised to see so many Bollywood entries. Some true to life - others, like Amitabh Bhachchan, nearly true to life!
The whole visit was thrilling and we got some great photos, the grandchildren said that it was their best outing of the whole summer.
But what really took us by surprise was the cab ride for two through The spirit of London and the Marvel Super hero 4D movie experience. The effects were amazing. The Chamber of Horrors was really scary. All you could hear was screaming.
It certainly was a great family experience.'
