The history of this museum dates back 200 years ago.The first steps in the creation of this museum were made by Dr. Philippe Curtius and his patron Marie Grosholtz. The fans of the art of their exhibition changed in line with the political scene that then ruled in the country, and they were trying to reflect on the state of the political scene in the country in their exhibitions. A lady from France who is very important for the creation of this museum Marie Grosholtz lived with her family at Dr. Philippe, whom she later became a spouse. In her joint life, she learned to model, and later she takes a great deal of work in the museum and becomes a great master in this business. Life later took her to London where she had the opportunity to open her small museum, which is now owned by the Merlin Entertainments group. Her wax figure is at the very entrance to the London Museum, so you can never miss it. Because of this woman, today’s population has the opportunity to enjoy the many wicked figures that are replicas of famous people.

In July 2008, Madame Tussauds’ Berlin branch became embroiled in controversy when a 41-year-old German man brushed past two guards and decapitated a wax figure depicting Adolf Hitler. This was believed to be an act of protest against showing the ruthless dictator alongside sports heroes, movie stars, and other historical figures. The statue has since been repaired, and the perpetrator has admitted that he attacked the statue to win a bet. The original model of Hitler was unveiled in Madame Tussauds London in April 1933; it was frequently vandalised and a 1936 replacement had to be carefully guarded. In January 2016, the statue of Adolf Hitler was removed from the London museum in response to an open letter sent by a staff writer of The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, followed by significant support for its removal from social media.
The first Madame Tussauds in India opened in New Delhi on 1 December 2017. Its operator, Merlin Entertainments, planned an investment of 50 million pounds over the next 10 years.

4. Prague (Muzeum Voskovych Figurin)- Very small museum, from the outside is a bit deceptive. What is in the museum is good to look at but there really isn’t enough in there to make it worth a visit. It’s mainly a wax museum with one small Madame Tussaud’s exhibition within it. It takes under half an hour to get through the whole museum. It does not have many figures, and not all of them look like the real person. Address: Celetna, 555/6, Prague 110 00, Czech Republic. /www.tripadvisor.com l
