Thank you for this topic card. I’ve visited many museums around the world. My own country, Bulgaria, has some of the best museums in Europe itself. But today I’m going to talk about a museum which is quite unusual in its own unique characteristics. The name of the museum is Madame Tussauds and it is the famous wax museum situated in London, the capital city of England. On my last trip to the UK a couple of years ago, I got the opportunity to visit this wonderful museum.
Madame Tussauds was a French Lady who learned wax modeling from her father. By 1835 She settled in the famous Baker Street of London and opened a museum where she sculptured famous people of the world with wax. Madame Tussauds Wax museum now has many branches around the world but the one situated in London is the most famous. It is adjacent to London Planetarium. It is a major tourist attraction in London, exhibiting the waxworks of famous and momentous people and also celebrated film characters. All the wax figures are the contributions of world-class wax sculptors from around the world.
After I bought my ticket, I entered the museum and I was mesmerized by the very state-of-the-art front side of the museum building. I really enjoy the green color personally and the green color of the London Planetarium bemused me. I was alone on this trip and so I did not have to wait for anyone else to move around the museum.
When I entered the museum, I found that the place is even larger than I thought, in the beginning, it would be. There were different floors in the museum and the inside there were hundreds of wax figures of different popular people from the fields of science, arts, commerce, film, sports and so on. I thoroughly enjoyed every piece of wax figures created by famous wax sculptors. I saw wax sculptures of Albert Einstein, Queen Elizabeth II, Martin Luther King Jr., William Shakespeare, Muhammad Ali, Usain Bolt, Madonna, Bob Marley, Nelson Mandela, Rafael Nadal, Sachin Tendulkar, Steven Spielberg, Lady Gaga and many other famous people. I was somewhat shocked to see the masterworks and was wondering how they have sculptured the face so accurately.
I really felt excited and moved by my visit to this unusual museum. Though the museum has been criticized for depicting the sculptures of dictators around the world, I think it is a wonderful and creative place of artworks and a worthy place to visit.
My visit and experience of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum have inspired many of my colleagues and friends who also have paid a visit there and shared their wonderful experience with me. I personally like the museum for its unique depiction of artwork with wax. I would encourage everyone, especially the young generation, to pay a visit to the museum.
This is the end of the answer.
