In our first trip to Bangkok, we visited Madame Tussauds to see the life-like wax figurines of famous celebrities and people. The tickets to go into Madame Tussauds are 800 baht for Adults and 600 baht for Children, but if you book online you can get a better deal – visit Madame Tussauds Bangkok website at http://www.madametussauds.com/Bangkok.
I took lots of pics with my camera (the old Nikon camera) and below are some of the pics :-
All the wax figures in Madame Tussauds are made to be as exact as possible to the real person – from the colour of the eyes, to the skin colour and the clothes are donated by the personality itself (where possible). According to the write up, the wax figures are constantly checked and touched up. Even the clothes are changed and sent for laundry! There are many figurines in Madame Tussauds – maybe close to 70 or more. I looked at the website recently and saw that they added a new figurine in the collection – Lady Gaga!
They have small games and attires which you can don and pose with the figurines. Hubby wore the musician attire and hat and posed with Mozart… which was really funny … because some of the visitors thought that hubby was part of the figurines as he was trying his best to stay still for me to photograph him.
I left out many of the pictures I’ve taken – there is also Mozart, Barack Obama, Jack Sparrow, Spiderman … and the list goes on. Madame Tussauds is a good place to visit if you have kids or even if you are not a kid yourself.
