Madame Tussauds Hongkong Wax Museum





One of the things that I can partially check on my bucket list is a visit to Madame Tussauds. I would love to visit the ones in London, New York, and Hollywood since they feature different celebrities and historical figures. The Madame Tussaud in Hongkong are full of Asian celebrities but I still enjoyed my visit. Madame Tussauds is an interactive attraction.

Madame Tussauds was a French artist who specializes in waxworks. She created death masks of leading French royalty and personalities during the French Revolution. She migrated to London, England and eventually opened the first Madame Tussauds wax museum.

It would have been better if they also had a version of the Chamber of Horrors. That would have been scary since it would feature the evilest people in History.

How many personalities can you recognize? Have fun!

Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is located at one of Asia's most famous tourist attractions: The Peak. It takes only around 15 minutes for you to reach the exhibition uphill from Central.

You can easily reach the hill by bus, minibus, or by Peak Tram.
