Madame Tussaud (Museum) with over 225 wax models of prominent personalities in its each branch is one of its kinds. Every idea is an idea until it is executed by a sharp and daring mind; such was the mind of Marie Tussaud. Marie Tussaud learnt the art of making wax models from her uncle Dr. Philippe Curtius. The very first wax model she made was of Voltaires (a french writer). After french revolution she was forced to stay in England. At that time with the help of her son she exhibited her art and opened the first branch of Madame Tussaud in baker’s street (London).
Marie Tussaud used her art to pay tribute to prominent personalities and now after her this is the tradition of Madame Tussaud. She named this museum Madame Tussaud in 1843. In her first exhibition she presented wax models of French Revolution victims, newly created figures of murderers and other criminals. Marie Tussaud started it as a hobby and today her hobby is a mark of privilege and dignity for those whose wax models are placed in Madame Tussaud.
The branches of this outstanding museum other than London are now present in several cities including Amsterdam, Bangkok, Sydney, Hong Kong (Victoria Peak), Las Vegas, Shanghai, Berlin, Washington D.C., New York City, and Hollywood.
