There are several Madame Tussauds in the world (including in Amsterdam), but Madame Tussauds London is the oldest of them all. Madame Tussaud learned the trade by making death masks for victims of the French Revolution. From 1835 she began to imitate celebrities and exhibit them in a place near the current Madame Tussauds.
Today, more than 300 celebrities can be seen. From sports heroes to movie icons and from music stars to Royalties, everything can be viewed. Crazy about politics? This is your chance to get your picture taken with Donald Trump. Big fan of the English Royal Family? William and Kate, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana can’t wait to have their picture taken with you.

Vladmir Putin, Christiano Ronaldo, Usain Bolt, ET, George Clooney, Lady Gaga, Marilyn Monroe, the Beatles, the Spice Girls, Tiger Woods, Yoda, they’re all here.
