Overview
More
Madame Tussauds Sydney features an all-star cast of the world’s best known personalities and heroes, including A-list celebrities, sports heroes, rock legends, world leaders and an array of home-grown Australian legends. Madame Tussauds Sydney is a new breed of attraction, with interactivity at the heart of the experience. Get up close, touch and even hug the figures. You can also grab the props to make your photos even more authentic!With a fascinating history dating back to the Paris of 1770, Madame Tussauds is quite literally a labour of love spanning 200 years of expertise and research. Each wax figure is crafted with unprecedented skill, artistry and accuracy. It takes over 800 hours of work and 20 artists to make just one wax figure.Madame Tussauds Sydney is the thirteenth Madame Tussauds attraction opened worldwide and the fifth of its kind in the Asia Pacific region.

We took our grandaughter during the school holidays. The queue to get tickets took about 30 minutes to get served. Too few ticket sellers. Cost almost $100 for the 3 of us. Really crowded inside and difficult to enjoy the displays. Not value for money.More
