Attraction Details
Owner description: Madame Tussauds Sydney features an all-star cast of the world’s best known personalities and heroes, including A-list celebrities, sports heroes, rock legends, world leaders and an array of home-grown Australian legends. Madame Tussauds Sydney is a new breed of attraction, with interactivity at the heart of the experience. Get up close, touch and even hug the figures. You can also grab the props to make your photos even more authentic!With a fascinating history dating back to the Paris of 1770, Madame Tussauds is quite literally a labour of love spanning 200 years of expertise and research. Each wax figure is crafted with unprecedented skill, artistry and accuracy. It takes over 800 hours of work and 20 artists to make just one wax figure.Madame Tussauds Sydney is the thirteenth Madame Tussauds attraction opened worldwide and the fifth of its kind in the Asia Pacific region.

“Outdated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We visited the wax museum because it was apart if a attraction deal we had bought online. I had previously been the to M.T in La's Vegas years ago and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, most of these wax figures were older and outdated. It was a fun little place to stop by only because we had the pass. I would have never paid full price for what we saw. Its mainly Australian celebrities, or much older famous people in history. Look at the list on their website of who they have before you go.

I thought that there would be more in the wax museum. Both my husband and i got to the end and said is that it. We did not find it value for money .

Very interesting place to visit. Some of the exhibits were VERY realistic, some, not so much. Would go again

“This is super cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I didn't expect this place to be this much fun.
You can interact with each "person" using the props available. And there are so many people I didn't even expect to be there. It was very cool walking around and taking shots of our favourite celebs.

The only thing is that they ask you to suggest people to be displayed by using the touchscreens, and unfortunately with a family of 2 adults and 5 kids of various ages, this is an almost impossible task.

I will look online for ways to suggest.

The staff were SUPER DUPER friendly and helpful.
