    Madame Tussaud Wax Museam part III

    by Joseph69 Updated Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Francois-Marie Arouet Voltaire (author and philosopher) is modelled by Marie in 1777.

    In 1780, Marie becomes the art tutor to King Louis XVI's sister and shows-off her creations at the royal court in Versailles.

    Marie returns to Paris in 1789, assisting Curtius to mould the heads of some of the guillotine's victims, where some of these people were her acquaintances in Versailles.

    The history just moves on well after she passes away, and her grandson Joseph Randall continues with exhibitions in England, and it blossomed from there after a few mishaps.

    Enjoy the rest of the pictures!

    Madame Tussaud Wax Museam part II

    by Joseph69 Updated Sep 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The name comes from the lady Marie Grosholz, later known as Madame Tussaud, and she born in Strasbourg in 1961.

    In 1770, Marie's mother's employer, a doctor named Philippe Curtius, opens an exhibition of life-size wax figurines at the Palais Royale, in Paris. This is where Marie learns the art of wax modelling from Philippe Curtius.

    More pictures to enjoy!

    Madame Tussaud Wax Museam part I

    by Joseph69 Updated Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was so happy to have visited this wax museum. There were so many wax creations of famous people, and a short history of Amsterdam itself also. I suppose go through the many photos I have posted and enjoy!

    The first Madame Tussaud museum in Amsterdam was opened in Kalverstraat, in 1971.

    In 1981, it moved to its current location in Dam Square.

    It's very easy to find in Dam Square.

    Expensive! Only if you like wax museum...

    by heryanta Written Jul 4, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Occupying a beautiful building in a prime spot at Dam square Madame Tussaud's is a hugely popular tourist attraction in Amsterdam.

    I personally find it very expensive (Euro 20 for adults) and not worth the money. However, I must concede that I do not like wax museums to begin with and when my mother (who does) visited Amsterdam she enjoyed it very much.

    The first part of the museum is rather interesting as they have scenes from the early days of Amsterdam, progressing into the recent years. The other collections include world leaders, Dutch celebrities and sport personalities.

    Madame Tussaud the Wax Museum

    by kimberly2000 Updated Apr 3, 2007

    Madame Tussaud is famous in wax figures. In Netherland Madame Tussaud Museum is one of the tourist attraction. You will see many different figures like famous star, musician, sport and other famous people around the world. If you have ADAC card, show your card in entrance so that you can have some entrance discount.

    Madam Tussand Wax Museum

    As I said we had limited time in Amsterdam, but we did pass by Madam Tussand's Wax Museum and it had been recommended to us by several people, so I have added it here so you can recognize the building.

    I heard about this museum before, and I want to visit it, eventhough it's a bit expensive than avaerage but it's nice to see all the wax statues of famous people, as politicians, celebrities, players, .. and it also shows and explains a part of the dutsh history with some royal and politician figures.
    If you were looking for a picture with Dalai lama, Jacque chirac or Mr. W then it's your chance. :)

    This wax museum, which is right on the Dam Square, is another must see. It was a great way to spend an hour and the life like figures were amazing. It's probably the one time I forgot my camera, and that was definately a mistake. You can get right next to your favorite stars and realize how short they actually are. Don't miss this.

    Outside the Madame Tusaud's Museum

    by hassan_abu Written Aug 1, 2006

    Even if you do not want to go in the Museum. there's lots to see on the outside of the museum. You could see mimes in action, but be warned; you are required to drop a euro coin or two if you want to take pictures of them in action.

    It is one of the must seen museums in Amsterdam. You get to see the famous people in wax and have your picture taken with them. I think they waxed all of these people cuz they look so much real. Except for the few. I think you can find my lipstick mark on Lenny Kravitz's and Tiesto's cheeks. ;) There's also some thrilling rooms for the ones who like tension.

    Like the London version, this place has a vast array of famous people including a few locals & royals. Not really my 'cup-of-tea' but an easy way to kill some time before wandering off to catch your train at Central Station

    This museum is so famous now, that almost everyone knows about it! But I was not aware that they are now present in Amsterdam also.

    Ok now to share a secret - The Iamsterdam card allows you 25% discount on the entrance ticket. But we thought that the price is still a little steep. So we started to walk out but we were approached by one of the museum employees. He asked us "why are you walking away". So we told him that the entrance is steep! He asked us how much we think would be reasonable. We mentioned our price and got to get in at that too!

    Go ahead and be a little silly

    by Erin09340 Written Jul 15, 2005

    You'll have more fun here if you let yourself go and embrace it. Be a little silly, pose with the statues, pretend you're dancing with Beyonce, etc. If you approach it feeling self-concious or stuffy, I don't think you'd have any fun.

    now where did I leave my sequins?

    I love this place (should I get a life?...LOL). After the 23 Euros that it costs to go in there I was defintely expecting it to be good., otherwise I would have asked for my money back. It was awesome. I had a nice surprise that I had not read about and I won't mention it so I won't spoil it for you. The wax figures look so real that I had to take a picture with JLO, Julia Roberts, Jessica Simpson and many others.

    OMG..JLO...What's up girl!
