Did you know? Madame Tussauds Facts.

  • Marie Tussaud’s first model was of Voltaire in 1777, after she had learned the art of wax modelling – meaning Madame Tussauds actually originates from the 18th Century.
  • Since 1846 the world-renowned Chamber of Horrors display has been tingling the spines of visitors to London.
  • Wax figure making is a very intricate process, artists must carefully measure the details and perfectly match things like hair and eye colour – the whole process can take up to half a year.
  • Celebrities themselves often donate personal items to their figurines, pieces from their wardrobes or notable accessories that add to the realness.
  • Regular up-keep is required on the models to make sure they stay lifelike. The artists touch up the wax, swap hairstyles and update them to reflect any changes to a celebrity's appearance.
