Bangkok is inevitably a place of wonder and colour. Although a modern metropolis, Bangkok has a unique blend of East meets West with culture, heritage and history intertwined to give rise to everything from the city’s unique cuisine, arts and crafts and architecture. This predominantly Buddhist nation is home to many beautiful temples, art galleries, teeming markets full of curios and a diverse gastronomy, while also being a hub for shopping and nightlife. With so many tourist attractions in every nook and corner, you will never run out of things to do and places to see in Bangkok.
Madame Tussauds Wax Museum was originally opened 200 years ago in London and to this day it remains as popular as ever. The museum has expanded over the years into a global icon, with branches of the original wax museum found in a variety of locations around the world.
This magnificent museum has its roots in Paris, France, around the period of 1770. The mastermind behind the wax work, Madame Tussaud learnt wax modelling in France under the patronage of Dr. Phillipe Curtius and travelled to England after the death of the doctor. She made her first wax carving in 1777; a sculpture of Voltaire. In the early 19th century she arrived in Britain and by 1835 Madame Tussaud’s exceptional skill helped to establish her base of operation in London. Ever since its inception in England’s capital, Madam Tussauds Wax Museum has become a global attraction, with venues in such destinations as America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Madam Tussauds in Bangkok opened in 2010 and has been a major tourist attraction since its establishment. With the unveiling of such world famous wax figures as Lady Gaga, Indian acting icon Amitabh Bachchan and famed Captain Jack Sparrow as portrayed by Johnny Depp, this Bangkok museum has grown in popularity. To those people who travel to Bangkok, experiencing this museum is almost as good as meeting the stars themselves. With the sculpted wax figures so impeccably finished, it is almost impossible to discern the real star from his or her wax replica.
Madame Tussauds Bangkok is home to pop stars, Hollywood celebrities, famous artists, sports stars, scientists, political leaders and other famous figures. From Michael Jackson, Madonna, Picasso, Einstein, Beethoven, Gandhi, Queen Elizabeth II, Serena Williams and Cristiano Ronaldo, the museum is brimming with celebrities next to whom you can have your picture taken, to take back home and brag about.
