Madame Tussauds London

KidRated’s Madame Tussauds London Top Tips:

No star is too A-list to avoid the party at Madame Tussauds London… even Michael Jackson managed to return from the grave to be there!  Those of you unimpressed by Cosmo-cover celebs can still be entertained thanks to the gallery’s sports stars, royals and even cultural intellects such as Einstein who dares you to see how smart you really are with his interactive IQ test.


The culture trip continues with the Spirit of London taxi ride which takes you on a trip through London’s history from the comfort of your own black cab. From the Great Fire of London to the Blitz, this ride is blazing with thrills.


Marvel’s most-loved superheroes are also on hand to save the day: the Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine all feature.


Don’t forget the Stars Wars Experience at Madame Tussauds where you can meet your favourite characters from The Force Awakens!


Plus there’s a Sherlock Holmes exhibit. Don the famous deerstalker to help Dr Watson find Sherlock in a spectacular interactive theatre experience…


Plan your visit here!

Teen Verdict

Family days out, attractions and things to do in London and beyond for kids, older kids and teenagers rated by kids and teens with KidRated


At first I was a little skeptical of going the Madame Tussauds because I’m just not that interested in celebrities but I actually had a pretty good time. Luckily, they had a good array of “people” there. I got to see Einstein, Van Gogh and Shakespeare to name a few. The bit I found the most interesting was actually the Behind The Scenes of Madame Tussauds. It was pretty fascinating to see how they construct the wax figures and all the time that goes into it.

  • Be prepared for the pumping music and high adrenaline from the start. I’m sure this encourages you to move around the attraction quicker but there’s no need to be rushed.
  • YouTube stars will appeal to teens and pop stars are fun to pose with for all ages.
  • This is ‘selfie central’ as you can touch the models so can get some fun photos.
  • Either buy priority entrance tickets or be prepared for a long wait in the line outside, especially in the summer.

    It’s not my cup of tea. It’s crowded, expensive, and a bit run down. Teens will probably enjoy seeing celebrities and taking photos with their wax models, but it’s really an overwhelming and loud place for younger guests. It’s interesting to learn about how the wax models are made, but I was itching to leave shortly after arriving. I don’t think it’s a great place for young children.

    My grandchildren were quite excited about going to Mme. Tussauds in London. But it is dated, unclean, crowded and all around a huge disappointment. There are schlocky gift stores every couple of feet. The signage is very poor. We were made to exit through a malt shoppe. I say, save your money!!

    Whether you’re an adult or kid – this is such a fun experience and a brilliant opportunity for some hilarious photos! Don’t go at weekends though or you’ll spend your whole day queuing!
