I have visited several wax museums before, but Madame Tussauds is certainly the most impressive one I've ever experienced. The admission price is a bit steep ($30). However, this museum allows you to touch all the figures and take as many photos as you wish. There are several floors full of exciting exhibits. You first enter a Hollywood Opening Night premiere party with dozens of A-list celebs, including Shakira, the Rock, JLo, Ozzy Osbourne, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Donald Trump, Whoopi, Robin Williams, Madonna, and many others. Then there is a brief (and optional) House of Wax-themed horror exhibit, featuring live actors that pop out of you. This portion is a bit weak but lasts only for a few seconds. Next, step into the A&E biography section featuring numerous historical figures from all centuries, such as Pope John Paul II, Princess Diana, and Albert Einstein. Then there is a quite extensive pop culture exhibit featuring popular singing sensations, sports stars, and pop culture icons of the last few decades. Hop on a bike next to Lance Armstrong or become a Spice Girl. Madame Tussauds also features a cafe and a gift shop. All in all, it is a fun experience that provides plenty of fun photo ops.
