Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, London
For history buffs, there are famous military leaders, kings, dictators and presidents. Displayed on the wall is the actual blade used to remove Marie Antoinette's head. For horror buffs there is the famous Chamber of Horrors. This section of the museum depicts scenes from the French Revolution and the plague and showcases famous villains like Jack the Ripper.
The entertainment figures come and go as cultural tastes change. With new and popular TV shows come new figures to reflect that popularity. Some wax figures also get makeovers to reflect the increasing age of the person depicted. Clothing is also changed regularly to keep up with trends. Current TV and sports stars are often depicted in the museum's displays.
Located on Marylebone Street near central London, the original Madame Tussaud's is still the best know. However, there are now other branches abroad, that feature figures more accessible to those countries. The New York museum features American athletes, music stars and figures of note. Other branches include Washington D.C., Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Las Vegas with several new cities planned.
