Madame Tussauds Singapore

I recently paid a visit to Madame Tussauds where wax figures come to live!

It's amazing how well made the wax figures are, the skin, the hair, even the wrinkles..

The history of Madame Tussauds dates back to 1770 in Paris. It was here that Madame Tussaud learnt to model wax likenesses under the tutelage of her mentor, Dr Philippe Curtius. At the age of 17, she became art tutor to King Louis XVI’s sister at the Palace Of Versailles and then, during the French Revolution, was hastily forced to prove her allegiance to the feudalistic nobles by making the death masks of executed aristocrats.

Madame Tussauds’ exhibition was a kind of travelling newspaper, providing insight into global events and bringing the ordinary public face-to-face with the people in the headlines.

The wax figures range from politicians, athletes, celebrities.. We had fun posing and snapping photos. :p Here are some, I shall not spoil the fun by posting all.

If you would like to get up close and personal with these A-listers, ticket can be purchase HERE at a cheaper price.

Thanks WTS Travel & Tours for the invite. :)
