Madame Tussauds Wax Museum Opened in Sydney, Australia

Wax museums are an attraction all over the world, as dedicated museums or special exhibition with famous people hosted by different museums in different cities and countries. Starting today Sydney, Australia, has its own dedicated Madame Tussauds wax museum and it sounds like a really interesting experience.

The world renowned attraction has been given an Australian make-over and has set-up shop in Darling Harbour.

In this museum you’ll find famous and glamorous stars such as Hugh Jackman, Cate Blanchett and Guy Pearce that stay side by side to other famous persons like Felicia Jollygoodfellow, Mick Dundee, Layne Beachley or Ian Smith.

The museum has a film room, a room dedicated to stars of the small screen.

Hywel Mathias, Madame Tussauds’ general manager, mentioned that it takes 60 artists 800 hours to create a figure from beginning to end. Another interesting thing is that each figurine is worth about $220,000. You can see a gallery from the museum here.

It takes a lot of work to put together such wax figures. It takes attention to the details, money and time, but the final result is worth it. Of course, the visitors can help preserve the figurines OK, or they can destroy them by taking parts (fingers or other “souvenirs”).

I visited such a wax figurine exhibition in Romania and I’ve told you about my experience, and posted many photos.  What do you think: do these figurines look like the people/characters they impersonate?
