Such a shame! We were so looking forward to visiting Madame Tussards. The waxworks themselves are amazing and worth the money. We enjoyed ourselves but agreed we would never go back.

Only visit if you are prepared to queue. The queuing starts outside even though we had prebooked. There are about 7 different queues which are so long you can't find the end. When you ask the staff are rude. We were told that you can join the queue at the time that you chose online so we were not impressed that this meant that you wouldn't be able to go in when you think you will. This is not made clear when booking.

It was school holidays so you expect it to be busy but really it seemed like chaos and I was so disheartened I very nearly just went home.

When inside you queue to get into the different rooms and then queue to take photos as clearly everyone wants a sit with Emma Watson, Daniel Craig and Barack Obama. Remember not everyone is happy to queue and just push in something my 14 year old couldn't understand.

Please don't take kids hoping to see the Marvel Superheroes as they will be disappointed. You see Hulk, Hawkeye, Captain America and Iron Man waxworks but they are really just to keep you busy while you queue for the 4d Marvel Superheroes film which is over very quickly and a little oversold.

We would recommend eating your sandwiches in the park behind and then walking down Baker Street to Selfridges and Bond Street afterwards.

Dear Sam M,

Thank you so much for your comments and taking some time to leave your review about Madame Tussauds London.

It is fabulous to read how much you appreciated the artistic skills that were put into making our figures. It is truly remarkable the amount of work and detail our team put in when creating our wax figures to ensure they look exactly like their counterparts! We are sorry to hear about the experience that you had with some other guests. Though we cannot control the actions of our guests, we do hope everyone will respect one another when visiting allowing others time to take photos and meet their favourite stars.

We do hope you were able to enjoy certain aspects of your experience at Madame Tussauds.

Kind regards,
Jake

Luckily we purchased our ticket in advance, however, the queues are humongous! but it is expected for such a popular attraction. It fits quite a lot of people in and it is worth the visit as they keep on updating the wax mannequins constantly.

We used our Merlin passes so we were shown to the Fast track queue which meant no queuing at all. We felt very fortunate as we passed the very long queues that led all the way round the building in the rain.
Once inside many of the areas weee very congested, but we managed to see everything and take some great photos.
Our two sons (8 and 6) particularly enjoyed the sports section, the royal family, superheroes and Star Wars. The 4D show and taxi ride broke it up a little bit.
A good way to spend a rainy morning in London.

If you’re paying on the day or using a voucher wait till 5pm or later. The museum allows admittance till 6pm and stays open for another 1.5hrs after this which is more than enough time to go round and see everything. We originally went over at around 12pm and were told the wait time was 3 hours! Went back at 4:30pm and only waited 1hr.
