Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds is a wax museum and major tourist attraction in London, England. It was originally founded by Marie Tussaud (1761–1850), a French artist who came to England in the early 1830s and by 1835 had established a small museum of wax figures at Baker Street. One of her main attractions was the Chamber of Horrors, which included representations of victims of the French revolution and of murderers. She went on to make models of famous figures like Lord Nelson and King George III. The museum was moved to its current location on Marylebone Road in 1883 and contains wax figures of numerous celebrities. In the twentieth century, other branches of “Madame Tussauds” were opened around the world.
