MADAME TUSSAUD’S MUSEUM
Madam Tussaud, nee Marie Grosholts was born in Strabourg, France, in 1761 in a family of Alsatian officer Joseph Grosgoltsa Swiss and his wife Anna Maria Walter. Her father was killed during the Seven years War only two months before Marie’s birth. After his death, the mother and children moved to Bern and began working as a housekeeper Dr. Philip William Curtius, a doctor and a wax modeler.
There are several halls at Madam Tussaud’s Museum. They are: the Grand Hall, the Chamber of Horrors and “The Spirit of London” exhibition and many others.
The wax figures are standing and sitting, and sometimes even moving and talking.
They are extremely realistic and when they look at you, their eyes are sparkling, you often feel uncomfortable in their company. Computer-controlled figures are especially popular with the visitors.
THE CHAMBER OF HORROR The Chamber of Horrors is probably the earlest place in the whole museum. No wonder visitors are quieter there than in other places.
The Grand Hall. In the Grand Hall you can see all kinds of celebrities, from Bill Clinton to Mandela. The politicians stand in solemn silence watching each other. A very strange company indeed: Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Margaret Thatcher, Oliver Cromwell, Michael Gorbachev…
There is a special place for the Royal Family here too.
THE SPIRIT OF LONDON ‘The spirit of London’ exhibition covers a period of more than 400 years and spans London’s history from Elizabethan times to the present day.
Do YOU KNOW? It costs about 40, 000 dollars to make a wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s. Queen Elizabeth II has been modeled 17 times – more than anyone else – each time with a new head.
