While chances are you’ve been to, or heard about, one of the world-famous Madame Tussauds wax museums (after all, where else can you get a photo op with the likes of Queen Elizabeth or former President Obama?), have you ever wondered how they’re made to look so real? It’s time to go behind the curtains and uncover the secrets behind wax models, from a company that has been specializing in the craft for over 200 years.

Join New York Adventure Club as we learn the art of wax model making at Madame Tussauds New York — founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud in 1802, this global attraction showcases wax models that look exactly like the people they portray, from Hollywood A-Listers to famous world leaders.

Led by one of Madame Tussauds’ most experienced staff members, our exclusive experience through the world of wax models will include:


  • A brief history of Marie Grosholtz Tussaud, from being forced to make death masks during the French Revolution, to leaving behind her husband to tour the British isles with her wax exhibition

  • A step-by-step presentation on how the world’s most renowned wax attractions are created and maintained, including an interactive showcase of wax figures

  • The inside scoop on artisan techniques developed at Madame Tussauds over the past 200 years ago, many of which are still used today

  • Fun games and challenges throughout the evening, including whether you can distinguish human from wax figure in Madame Tussauds’ Famous “Side by Sides”


Afterward, we’ll head into the attraction for a short guided discussion around some of Madame Tussauds most famous wax figures, before letting you browse the entire collection at your own pace!
