Anna Maria Tussaud was an artist, who made her sculptures from wax in the 18th century. She was born in France, but then lived most of her life in Switzerland and England. She founded her first exhibition on Baker Street, London.
Although she lived 200 years ago, the brand she established is more popular than ever. Madame Tussauds museums can be found on 4 continents: Europe, Asia, America and Australia.
I visited the one in Vienna, and it was a superb experience! The ticket is really pricey, but it’s worth it. You can look into the eyes of historical figures, politicians, celebrities, musicians, sportsmen and artists.
Here are my favourite sculptures from Madame Tussauds Vienna:
