Advantages: greatly realistic models
Disadvantages: overcrowded and overpriced
This Popular wax work museum all started with a woman called Marie du Barry who spent most her life making death masks, this gruesome task involved Marie rooting through corpses to find there severed heads and make a cast of it she then went on to showcase her skill in a museum showing celebrities of her day to those who would never see them otherwise.
The Trip Down to Madame Tussauds is justified by the history it carries alone.
This Gallery of stars (old and new) is full of lifelike models youíll never believe are fake.
In the Madame Tussauds you will find a gift shop, photo pick-up, retail points, refreshments and toilets so you wont have to go elsewhere for dinner.
Madame Tussauds pass holders get in free and you can also get a discount if you get Tesco reward points.
The bad points of Madame Tussauds is that it is awfully crowded and you may have to queue outside for sometime on really busy days, my advise is to book for tickets online so you donít have to queue to buy ticket.
Also the price is quite steep for the size of the exhibit.
Summary: Good but crowded
