Madame Tussaud's Blackpool, Blackpool

Madame Tussaud's Blackpool, Blackpool (must see)

In March 2010, Blackpool Council and Leisure Parcs began buying some of Blackpool's more prominent attractions. The 39 million pound deal included Blackpool Tower, Winter Gardens, the Sea Life Center, and Louis Tussaud's Waxworks. The attractions would be run as before, but the Waxworks would now be Madame Tussaud's Blackpool.

Madame Tussaud's opened in 2011. It has more than 80 wax figures of the famous among us, including film and TV stars, athletes and musicians, and celebrities. Making a wax figure requires extensive research, including photos and measurements. Wax and oil-based paint are used along with clay and metal armatures to strengthen the figures.

A host of famous people await the visitor. The Beatles, Lady Gaga, Britney, and Freddie Mercury stand with sports stars and comedians. One may enter the world of Marvel Comics. The god Thor guards the Jottenheim ice cave, brandishing his jammer. The Hulk and Spiderman hang out on Broadway. Travel in the Guardians of the Galaxy corridor.

Madame Tussaud's is located at 87-89 Promenade, Blackpool. The museum is open every day from 10 am, year-round.
