Madame Tussauds, Berlin

Madame Tussauds, Berlin

Madame Tussauds is a wax museum in London with branches in a number of major cities. It was founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud and was formerly known as "Madame Tussaud's"; the apostrophe is no longer used. Madame Tussauds is a major tourist attraction in London, displaying waxworks of historical and royal figures, film stars, sports stars and infamous murderers. Madame Tussauds is owned and operated by Merlin Entertainments.
Situated at a short walk from the Brandenburg Gate, the museum has recently sparkled debate over the display of a rather controversial personality, Adolf Hitler. Among other notorious individuals presented here are German politicians of various periods, a bunch of US presidents, prominent German scientists such as Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, and famous musicians—from Ludwig van Beethoven to Tokio Hotel. There are also tennis, football and boxing stars surrounded by interactive sports games, and a simulated TV studio "airing" a quiz show. ‘Behind the scenes’, visitors can learn the true story of Madame Tussaud, who modeled victims of the French Revolution. Waiting in the final room to be photographed are international celebrities like Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt.

Operation Hours: Daily 10 am - 7 pm.
