Holidays in Madame Tussauds

Holiday Travel Guide
Madame Tussauds featuring interior views as well as an individual male

Rub shoulders with your favourite celebrities and sports stars at this world-famous interactive waxworks exhibition.

A visit to Madame Tussauds is a fun and fascinating experience for adults and children alike. Discover amazingly life-like wax sculptures of some of the most famous figures in the world, both past and present. Many displays also include interactive and animated exhibits, making them appear even more life-like.

The museum opened in 1971 and was the first overseas branch of the original exhibition that can still be found in London in England. Madame Tussaud was born Marie Grozholtz in 18th century France. Her skills at carving wax likenesses were developed when she was forced to create death masks of aristocrats guillotined during the French Revolution, while under arrest. She put her artistic talents to happier ends opening the first permanent exhibition on her release.

Madame Tussauds Amsterdam is at the top of the Peek & Cloppenburg department store building. As you enter, look out for the two giant wax statues that adorn the building’s façade. Take the lift to the top floor to start your tour, discovering local Dutch celebrities as well as international stars.

Shake hands with Dutch royalty, including Queen Beatrix, or join inspirational world leaders around the White House Oval Office desk. Strut you stuff on the catwalk with Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes. Step up onstage with Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, or pose for the paparazzi alongside Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Sports fans can test their skills in a training session with Brazilian soccer player Ronaldinho or have your photo taken with soccer legend David Beckham.

The museum’s collection of celebrity figures is constantly being updated. Look out for new additions that will have been meticulously crafted in the London workshops, before they are shipped to Amsterdam. Don’t miss the figure of the museum’s founder, Madame Tussaud herself.

Madame Tussauds is open every day apart from on public holidays. Allow 1 hour 15 minutes for the tour. To avoid the queues at the entrance, you can purchase tickets via the official website. Located on Dam Square, the museum is just a short walk or tram ride from Central Station. If you are driving, it’s a good idea to use the park-and-ride facilities at the edge of the city, as parking is very limited in the centre.
