Part of the Madame Tussauds family, this waxworks museum is a must-visit if you’re in Vienna with your family. Let your kids meet their sporting heroes and acting idols and take them through an interactive experience and be awed at the intricate detail of these waxwork figures that have been brought to life.
- Madame Tussaud started off as an assistant to a wax anatomist who worked for medical research, she later broke away from him and started up her own trade and business – becoming more famous than him
- It takes about 226 measurements to create an accurate life-like wax work
- The smallest wax figure Madame Tussauds has ever made was Tinkerbell
Take a tour behind the scenes and learn about how the wax works are made, how long it takes the trained and dedicated staff to make a single wax model and the painstaking process from moulding through to make-up and hair. You can even try making your own miniature wax work to take home with you.
Explore the wide range of exhibitions ranging from world renowned politicians like Obama and Nelson Mandela, to some of the world’s most creative minds and genius from Freud and Einstein. Jump on stage with Freddie Mercury and sing along with Katy Perry – there are plenty of models to have your photo taken with and experience a fun part of Vienna with your family.
