Madame Tussauds Museum in Amsterdam

  • A country: Holland
  • City: Amsterdam
  • Address: Dam square 20
There is always a queue! Still would! After all, this is one of the 14 branches of the famous wax museum of Madame Tussauds, which opened for the first time in 1835 in Baker Street in London and here in Amsterdam, since 1971, the first of its branches has been operating. Now it is located in the heart of the city in Dam Square, where it moved in 1991.
Maria Tussauds taught Dr. Phillip Curtis wax work, whose exhibition was first held in 1770, and she created the first figure representing Walter in 1777. In 1794, the collection of the late Phillip Curtis passed to Maria Tussaud. So began this collection.
Madame Tussauds is a successful combination of a fascinating show with informational and educational stuffing, and for each city it has its own. So in the exposition of the dedicated history of Amsterdam with amazing realism, life, costumes and faces of the old city are conveyed. Here is Rembrandt in the workshop at work, here the fisherman swims in his boat along the canal, here is a one-legged sailor telling about the past of Amsterdam ...
And, of course, here 3 properties of the human psyche are fully exploited - ambition, desire for a miracle and desire for fear. Here you can take a picture next to Lenin, those who didn’t manage to do it during his life, say hello to Obama, take a photo hugging the Pope, Gorbachev, or Queen Beatrix. Who is not interested in politics, for those there are other idols: Michael Jackson, Sir Elton John, Merlin Monroe, Madonna and other stars of show business.
Those who wish to compensate for the positive emotions from the contemplation of the beautiful, can do it in the dungeon of horror. Skillfully recreated in wax footage from the relevant films, perhaps, anyone will cause, at least, a slight chill. Those who want a miracle, get it to the full, barely stepping over the threshold of the museum. All wax figures are alive and even the eyes shine and shine naturally. Isn't it a miracle? It is for the miracle in the museum always turn.
Also note that we recently covered Madame Tussauds Museum, located in Berlin.
