This a cool place and when I first visited this place there weren’t very many people so the place was kind of creepy. Many of the wax sculptures were so life like and captured a very good representation of the celebrity it was molded after. It was kind of neat to know how tall or short some of the celebrities are. We visited this again since my hubby has not seen it, so we had a great time and he was actually impressed.

or at least their wax figures. I'm not a fan of wax museums, but my niece is and she had a blast inside with her friend. She came out with funny photos with George Bush, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Simon Cowell, J Lo, and lots more.
Madam Tussaud's (correct spelling) Wax Museum at the Venecian Hotel is a MUST see. The detail put into the wax pieces allowes them to look ALIVE!! I kept expecting the wax figures to start moving! There is a section of the museum that displays figures in various stages of completion so you can get the idea of how they are created.
My favorite figures were Brad Pitt, Bono, Shirley McClaine and Princess Diana. There were actually two Princess Diana figures on display.
The displays are interactive. You can touch and sit next to the figures all you want. Jennifer Lopez's cheek would turn red when you rubbed her bum. Yea, like that would really happen. The Madonna and George Bush figures were not very realistic, maybe they didn't pose for Madam Tussaud's.
I felt very sorry for the employees working the museum. We would enter a room and no one would be in there except the was life-like figures and the one employee. A couple friendly employees started up converstaions and I couldn't help feeling that they must be extremely lonely in a room with no live people all day except when the occasional LIVE being walks through.
Kind of tacky-but lots of fun. Pose with your favorite celebrities and then take the pictures back home and tell your friends that you met them at a nightclub or saw them at the Palms. I have a great picture of me making out with Bruce Springsteen. My best friend had one of her made pinching Harrison Ford's butt. Great fun!

For those who don't have the ability to mingle with A-list celebrities, Madame Tussuad's in Las Vegas will give you the closest opportunity to do as such. Located at the Venetian Hotel & Casino, it's based upon waxworks of famous figures, historical and today's contemporary celebrity. The original started in London (which I also went to) and now there's branches of Madame Tussaud's all over the world. This was the first one to be based in America, followed by New York later on. The entry fee is a little pricey, however, you can usually find a coupon that'll get you at least 10% off in some Las Vegas ads. It's 25 USD entry for an adult. Seniors are 18 USD, and kids are 15 USD.
Tousand’s wax museum. There is a coupon in those booklets you can find everywhere and some of the people look incredibly real while there is also a large array of people to see. Located at the Venetian is a nice break from the sun and gambling. Big dissapointment: My man Mel Gibson didnt look anything like him. For those of you with a George Clooney crush, you can marry him in the chapel.
The famous Madame Tussauds has come to Las Vegas. An interactive wax museum where you are encouraged to become part of the scene. All of your favorite sports figures, musicians, pop stars and political types. Feel free to golf with Tiger, sing with Simon, lounge with Hugh, and marry George! The displays change often to keep it interesting.
Be sure and grab a discount coupon in any of the local Vegas magazines, and don't forget the camera. The photo ops are endless.
The wax figures at Mme. Tussauds are so realistic it's sometimes hard to determine which are and are not real people. This is an interactive museum as well, so you can touch and have your photo taken with the statues. $24 is the adult price to get in, but you may find coupons in the entertainment books given out by the cab drivers. They also have an optional "haunted house" to go through, where Freddy Kruger, Jason & Leatherface just might not be made of wax. ;) FYI though, photos are NOT allowed in the hautned house.
I really enjoyed this. Its better than other wax museams. You can actually touch the figures. I laid on a bed and had my picture taken with Hugh Hiefner! Elvis held my hand! I know its all fake but it was fun. I wish it was bigger. Even my husband liked it. Get a coupon!
Madame Tussaud's gives you the experience of taking your photos with celebrities without having to deal with their diva attitudes! You can shake your booty with Beyonce, lie on Hugh Heffner's bed, shoot hoops with Shaq, be serenaded by Elvis, marry George Clooney (wedding dress and bouquet are provided ladies!), and much more! We had so many laughs going through here and doing crazy poses. Good for all ages as there are celebrities from way back in the day as well ;-)
Whoopie!! So she's a bit lifeless. But has she really being alive since she crucify herself as hosting the Oscars.
If you think Whoopie is tacky then look for his Air-ness - MJ. Aka MIcheal Jordan.
The Madame is fun for all. Spend an hours look at celebrated at their best or how they'll be after their 60th birthday facelift.
For a hour or so of moderately expensive entertainment, cruise over to the Venetian and enter Madame Tussaud's. Here, you can get pictures of yourself taken with somewhat lifelike replicas of celebrities. The figures run the gamut of entertainment: actors, musicians, sports stars, etc. You are allowed to touch, so go right ahead and get close...
There are so many tourist attractions in the hotels that you really have to pick and choose. Its impossible to do all of them in a short visit. Plus, it can get pretty expensive. Personally, I'm a big fan of wax museums. I don't know why, but I just find them entretaining.
This wax museum was pretty small and there is no chamber of horrors, but the figures are very well done. Inside, you'll find wax impersonations of sports figures such as Shaquille O 'Neil and pop stars like Britney Spears. Elvis also makes an appearance as it wouldn't be a Las Vegas attraction without some form of Elvis impersonation.
Some of the exhibits are interactive and feature background sound and backdrops to help create the image that you are in a movie scene or real life scenario next to one of these figures. The sets make for great photo opportunities and the figures look as life like
in pictures as they do when walking through Madame Tussauds.
I found it entertaining and worth the price, which was around $15. I've included some of the photos in a separate travelogue.
