Madame Tussauds 

Sing next to Kylie Minogue, stand next to Ned Kelly, admire world leaders or strike a pose with the star you adore the most in this world-renowned wax museum.

At Madame Tassauds, it is hard to believe how life-like these wax figures are. So much so, that you expect them to move from the spot where they are standing. Snap a photograph with renowned Australian and international celebrities and move through the re-created worlds of some of the most influential people of our time. 

In the Madame Tassauds in Sydney, the figures are organised in themed zones and you can read about their achievements in the displays next to them.

In the History Zone, sail the high seas with Captain Cook, stand beside the infamous bushranger Ned Kelly or fly away with Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, aka “Smithy”, the pioneering aviator.

Lament or praise the current political climate next to Australia’s first female prime minister, Julia Gillard, or John Howard, the second-longest serving prime minister of Australia. Discuss international policy with American president Barack Obama or the Queen of England. Hope for world peace next to the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama or South African anti-apartheid leader, Nelson Mandela. Read the interactive displays to learn more about the world’s spiritual and political leaders. 

In the Sports Zone, compete alongside racing-car driver Mark Webber, step onto the green next to golf-champion Greg Norman or swing a tennis racket with former world No.1 tennis player Lleyton Hewitt. In the Music Zone, pick up a guitar with Australian country music legend Slim Dusty, perform on stage next to pop star Kylie Minogue or shape up with Sandy from Grease. 

Stand by the Aboriginal rights activist, Eddie Mabo, strike a pose with the early settlers Henry Lawson and Banjo Patterson or test your science knowledge on the touch screen by Albert Einstein. Slip on a white dress like Marilyn Monroe’s or be dazzled by superstars such as Nicole Kidman, Leanardo Do Caprio and Angelina Jolie.

Pose with Madame Tussaud herself, the legendary creator of the original museum in London, and at the end of your visit, create your very own wax model of your hand. 

The museum is located on Darling Harbour and is accessible by ferry, train and bus. Parking is available for a fee in the city centre. The museum is open daily, with last admissions an hour before closing time. Be sure to check ahead for admission deals and combination tickets.
