MADAME TUSSAUD’S About 7000 people a day stand in line in order to gaze at mute wax models turning Madame Tussaud’s into the top tourist attraction in London and beating the Tower into the second place .In 1993 the exhibition embraced audio –animatronics ,populating a new ‘Spirit of London ‘ ride with moving and speaking figures .Some of the wax models are really lifelike .
All travel notes scolded Madame Tussaud’s Museum. Each argues that the wax figures are disgusting, have no relation to the art, that the visit to the museum is an empty waste of time. Since the authors are unanimous, we have to obey it. However, from time to time, I forgot their indignation, learning some figures , comparing them with the illustrations in textbooks, with movies, with paintings on historical themes. It is always nice when you can recognise them. D. Granin. Notes to the guide
