Madame Tussauds: One of the best things to do in Sydney

Madame Marie Tussaud lived in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Her passion for wax modeling began in Strasbourg, France and her talents eventually led to fame when her family moved to Britain and opened a London exhibition.

Over two centuries later, Madame Tussauds is the world’s leading wax museum with exhibits in more than two dozen major cities. One of the Madame’s newest exhibits can be found right here in Darling Harbour Sydney - displaying realistic models of the world’s best known heroes, legends and famous faces.
