Madame Tussauds or Hollywood Wax Museum?

Hollywood has two wax museums – Madame Tussauds and Hollywood Wax Museum, located 300 meters (.2 miles) from each other.

Madame Tussauds and Hollywood Wax Museum

This is why tourists get confused and want to know which one they must visit – Hollywood Wax Museum or Madame Tussauds?

We recommend you opt for Madame Tussauds Hollywood for two reasons – 

  1. Madame Tussauds’ Tripadvisor rating is 4.5 while Hollywood Wax Museum’s rating is only 3.5
  2. Madame Tussauds’ wax statues are more lifelike, and thus the experience is better.

Madame Tussauds Los Angeles or Las Vegas

Tourists who plan to visit both Los Angeles and Las Vegas in a short period usually want to know which is better – the Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas or the one in Los Angeles. 

They want to know this so that they can see the better Madame Tussauds museum and skip the other. 

Two factors can sway your decision – 

  1. The wax figurines on display
  2. How old is the Museum – the newer ones are more updated

Both Madame Tussauds Las Vegas and Madame Tussauds Los Angeles have different figurines. 

You can visit their official websites and check out the stars on display. 

Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas was the first wax museum to open in the USA in 1999. 

Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles was inaugurated more recently – in 2009 – and hence more updated.
