Madame Tussauds Las Vegas
What? Have a great time at a wax museum? Yes!
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of celebrities (um...wax replicas, that is) from the Madame Tussaud's museum in Las Vegas. Would you like to visit Madame Tussaud's on your next Las Vegas trip? Maybe the pics & info on this page will help you decide!
What's it like to visit one of Madame Tussaud's museums?
You'll feel as if you just made the "A List" of stars!
Your conception of a wax museum is probably something like this: You quietly walk along an indoor pathway while staring at various vignettes of famous film or historical figures in settings which would be natural for them. The wax figures look somewhat similar to pictures you've seen of the people involved. You look from behind a rope, but you don't touch; in fact, you don't necessarily even get too close to the statues. You come away feeling like, "Well, that was nice. A little boring, but at least I learned something, so this was good for me."
You're RIGHT---about MOST wax museums!
About Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada? Whoa...wrong on several counts!
Yes, there are figures of famous political, music and film celebrities. And, yes, the characters are situated in vignettes of "natural settings." That's about where the similarity ends.
At Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, the wax figures are undoubtedly going to be more natural-looking than at any other wax museum you've ever been to before (unless, of course, you've only been to other Madame Tussaud's museums!) Therefore, there's no need for the museum's big wigs to keep you at a distance from them. Even when you walk up close and scrutinize the statues face to face, they'll still appear to be realistic.
Furthermore, you'll actually be ENCOURAGED to touch the statues. The favorite activity of most visitors is to hug & pose with the wax celebrity figures while family members shoot photo upon photo like paparazzi. Clowning around isn't frowned upon---it's EXPECTED!
Go ahead---photograph yourself with the wax Johnny Depp! Get pictures with dozens of other celebrities while you're at it, too! After all, "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas," right? If you don't tell your friends that these guys aren't the real actors, nobody's going to be around to spoil your little secret! (Just joking; of course you'd NEVER try to fool your friends---would you!)
You should know, however, that nothing stays exactly the same for long at Madame Tussaud's. The wax figures may change clothing...or new statues may come in while old statues move out. The only way to be 100% certain if the celebrity figure that you most want to see during your visit will be on display will be to call Madame Tussaud's just before your visit (phone number at the end of this page.)
Madame Tussaud's Las Vegas: statues rotate periodically
It was terrific fun to pose alongside Captain Jack Sparrow and his companion, Will Turner. Because the displays rotate at the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, however, you'll no longer be able to enjoy mugging with the lovable scalawag, Jack Sparrow, and his honorable friend, Will Turner. The pictures of these movie figures remain on this page, however, since they have been so very popular with readers.
What happened to these popular Pirates of the Caribbean figures?
Sad to say, Orlando Bloom's statue is no longer at Madame Tussaud's in Las Vegas. However, you never know when his wax figure might return...or show up at one of the museum's other locations!
Meanwhile Johnny Depp's wax figure has changed into a suit! Gone are the dreadlocks, pirate boots and bandana; Johnny's statue is sporting a black suit!
But, of course...that could change at any time. Who knows? Maybe he'll be dressed as his Alice in Wonderland character (the Mad Hatter) someday soon!
That's why going to Madame Tussaud's isn't just a one-time thing. You may visit again on a different trip to Las Vegas...and experience a completely different adventure!
Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum: Notable actors
You can have fun hangin' with your favorite actor or actress at Madame Tussaud's...or, at least their wax counterparts. Have your family take a photo of you hugging the figures...or, in some cases (as you see in the photo of George Clooney's look-alike) the statues actually look like they're hugging YOU!
The noted actors represented at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas have been chosen to appeal to a variety of age groups. You'll find wax replicas of acting notables known and admired at this very moment...actors and actresses such as Angelina Jolie, Nicholas Cage, Ben Affleck, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Patrick Stewart and Brad Pitt, to name a few.
On the other hand, Madame Tussaud's museum strives to interest older visitors, as well. In addition to currently-popular actors and actresses, you'll find wax counterparts to film's famous flixters from days gone by. Wax replicas of actors from the golden era of film at Madame Tussaud's include Bob Hope, George Burns, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne.
To your left, you see a picture of Marilyn Monroe. In the photo slide show below, you'll also notice the pictures of John Wayne, George Burns, Louis Armstrong and Judy Garland.
Famous singers and musicians at Madame Tussaud's
Actors aren't the only ones memorialized at the Las Vegas Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. You'll find replicas of a number of singing greats and instrumentalists here, as well.
To your left is a picture of Bono from U2.
To your right, you see a picture of Madonna's wax replica.
Other noted musicians with statues at Madame Tussaud's include Elvis Presley, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong...and there are yet others on the list, as well.
Madame Tussaud's statues of famous political figures
A number of famous political figures are immortalized in wax at Madame Tussaud's museum in Las Vegas. These include both the living as well as the departed. And, though most are from the USA, others are from other countries, as well.
To your left, you see a picture of Princess Di as represented at Madame Tussaud's.
And, to your right, you see a picture of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as she is portrayed at Madame Tussaud's.
Along with Princess Diana and Jackie Kennedy, you'll see wax replicas of John F. Kennedy, George W. Bush, Martin Luther King Jr, Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin.
More pictures of the stars at Madame Tussauds!
Since Madame Tussaud's museum rotates its figures from time to time, the list of celebrities enshrined with wax may not be exactly the same list of stars that you'll find when you visit. Furthermore, the number of wax statues at the museum is larger than the pictures shown on this page. Below is a photo slide show of still more wax replicas at the Las Vegas Madame Tussaud's at this time; but even adding these slides to the page doesn't give you the full list of characters you'll encounter when you visit Madame Tussaud's in person!
In the above slide show, you can see pictures of still MORE celebrity wax figures at Madame Tussaud's in Las Vegas.
If it looks like Madame Tussaud's is a fun place to visit...well, it is! Family members of almost every age group will find something of particular interest to them.
