If you had dreams of getting clicked with one of your favorite celebrities in Dubai but you couldn’t find them anywhere…there is a chance that you can find them at Madame Tussauds Dubai. Though they will not be real but a lifelike wax figure is definitely the second best thing that you can find.
Madame Tussauds Museum was one such thing! It was quite surprising that Dubai was not a part of the 21 places that had Madame Tussauds. But, I think the heavens above read my thoughts! Madame Tussauds will open in Dubai in 2020.
Another absolutely amazing fact is that it will be located on the Bluewaters Island right next to Ain Dubai, which is Dubai’s version of the London Eye. With some incredible places to visit and have fun, I am already excited to see what more the island has to offer to us!
What is Madame Tussauds Dubai?
Madame Tussauds settled down in Baker Street in 1835 and opened a museum. The museum featured the ‘Chamber of Horrors’. It was a part of the museum which had horrifying relics from the French Revolution. After her death, her grandson shifted her works to the current location of the museum. The first overseas Madame Tussauds opened in Amsterdam in 1970. From that time, the number of Madame Tussauds has increased manifold. Now, you can find one in Bangkok, Delhi, Beijing, Berlin, Hollywood, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Las Vegas, London, San Francisco, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Washington DC, Wuhan New York, and Orlando.
And now finally there is a Wax Museum in Dubai! The museum will feature A-list celebrities, political leaders, historical legends and sporting icons from all across the globe. The stunning lifelike wax figures of the people will be brought to reality by world-class sculptors and the technique will be the same as what Madame Tussauds used about 200 years ago. You can touch, hug, feel and get clicked with your favorite celebrities. Isn’t that incredibly exciting? I can’t wait to visit!
What is the Madame Tussauds Dubai Celebrity List?
The list of celebrities that you will find at the Madame Tussauds Dubai is not final as yet. But, we got a few hints from our trusted sources! You can expect to see lifelike wax figures of Elvis Presley, David Beckham, Barack Obama, and Vladimir Putin. I mean these definitely won’t be all and you can expect many more of your favorites!
