Who hasn’t heard of Madame Tussauds nowadays? Everyone knows about it because it’s not just any wax museum, it is the wax museum. Madame Tussauds has introduced a revolutionary concept allowing visitors to have direct contact with the wax sculptures. Guests are free to hug and even kiss some of the world’s biggest celebrities and historical figures.
Located in the Siam Discovery Center, near Siam Paragon,Madame Tussauds Bangkok has 10 exhibit rooms designed as real-life situations, making visits to the museum an actual journey. Visitors can travel through time, visit the glamorous world of Hollywood or pose with political leaders around the world. From Mao Zedong to Picasso, George Clooney to Barack Obama, you can also rub elbows with Thailand’s Hall of Fame, like the late parents of His Majesty the King or Dr. Rojanasunan. Of all the rooms, the Royal room where the latter are displayed is by far the most impressive. All the decorative elements in this room are meticulously planned down to the tiniest details, whether the royal costumes, color scheme, floral graphic patterns and music, all of which received the Royal endorsement from the Thai Royal family. This is the only room in which you are not allowed to touch the figures.
Behind the glory and glamour, what makes Madame Tussauds Bangkok different from other wax museums in Thailand is the quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail, from set designs all the way to daily maintenance. Each strand of hair is implanted one by one, using real human hair. You can learn all about the craft of wax work from the second-floor exhibit on the history of Madame Tussauds. The museums’ souvenir boutique carries an interesting collection of memorabilia and quirky accessories you might want to bring home with you.
