“Madame Tussauds Wax Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Has up to date Hollywood stars, and sections for different eras.
Have a bit of fun taking photos with all the realistic looking models, seeing who looks more real than others, who is tall or short and what you didn't expect. Fun to go with a few people and have a laugh. Costs about $25 each to get in though...a little pricey seeing as you are in and out in about 30-40 minutes.

“so much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

My 12-year-old and I went to Madame Tussauds not knowing what to expect, and it was so much more fun than we expected! The wax figures are SO LIFELIKE you can't believe it, and you can pose with them, touch them, and take photos with them. There were figures of current celebrities as well as old time movie stars, sports stars, and music stars as well. We were very entertained for a few hours, and took lots of great photos! Definitely worth the trip!

“So Realistic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

The wax figures were so real which was suprising. It was well worth the $15 we paid to get into the museum. Great photo opportunities and nice and central location. Easy afternoon attraction as it is open until 10pm!

“Waxing wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

This place is so much fun. It was amazing to stand next to stars that we had seen since we were children, and to be surprised at how tall, or tiny they were in real life. It is a great place to spend a few hours.

“So much fun to take photos with the stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

My wife and I made our first stop on Hollywood Blvd waiting for our Star Line tours so we decided to go into Madame Tussauds wax museum for fun. We bought a 48 hr pass with Star Line tours so the wax museum was included since they had a partnership. I have no idea what the real price is.

It was a quick 1.5 hr tour that you take at your own pace over the 3 floors but I am so glad we brought the camera. We took so many pictures interacting with the wax celebrities. They had some objects to wear so that you can get good photos. All the adults will have fun here but the only stars there for kids were Shrek, Ironman, Spiderman, and Wolverine...otherwise the kids may find this boring.

Highly recommended for the touristy Hollywood experience!
