Hotellit lähellä Madame Tussauds Lontoo Madame Tussauds Wax Museum has been a popular attraction in London for more than two centuries. It was begun by Marie Tussauds, a Frenchwoman from Strasbourg, France, who had been taught to make wax figures by the surgeon Philippe Curtius. The museum held its first exhibition in 1835, when Londoners queued for a glimpse of the Chamber of Horrors, where infamous criminals were depicted. Now there are branches of the famous museum in cities around the world. Among the most popular wax statues in London are those of the British royals, particularly William and Kate, and pop stars like Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.
